Now for a little about my card….
I’m a sucker for a soft, romantic card, and I feel like this card is just that! I love the painted look of the wreath and the script of the sentiment. And I think the pastel blue bakers twine adds even more softness.
Here’s a quick video of the finished card:
To make this card:
1. Use ink daubers to apply ink to the Painted Heart Wreath stamp. I applied a light color to the images, and then used my daubers to apply a darker color to the edges or middles of the images, depending on what I wanted. I used 2 colors for the hearts and three colors for the leaves just to give the image more depth. All my colors are listed below in my Supplies list. 2. Once you have the stamp inked, you can stamp it on your card panel. The nice thing about this technique is that if you use a MISTI you can go back over any areas where you want to add more color and re-stamp it. 3. Once you’ve stamped the image, you can cut down the panel and arrange your sentiment where you want it. 4. Apply anti-static powder to your panel, then stamp your sentiment in a black pigment ink and use clear embossing powder to heat emboss it. 5. Add foam adhesive to the back of your panel and tie a piece of bakers twine around the top. 6. Adhere your panel to your card base. 7. Add a few sequins for a bit of shine!

That sentiment is the title of a song that Kenny G plays his sax too! My husband didn’t know the words to the song but knew I loved the way Kenny G played it, so one Christmas, he wrote the words and sang them to me on Christmas Eve. I bawled, of course, while he was singing it! Obviously I love that sentiment!
This is Gorgeous!!! I love that you used this stamp in a non wreath look!!
