Now, I’ll share some details with you J

The pattern for this card comes from the Make It From Your Heart, vol 1 - pattern #19.
I LOVE the deep, rich colors of the Huntington paper pack and used 4 out of the 6 designed papers that are included in this kit!

I LOVE the doily design stamp image that comes in the Artbooking Bundle…and decided to use that in my project as well.  I wondered what this image would look like if I embossed it…hmm…now to chose what colors to emboss it in J

This Cricut Compatible shape can be found on the “10 Things” key of Artbooking.

I ended up choosing to use the clear embossing powder!  For that technique I pulled out my Versamark-watermark ink, inked up the stamp, then covered the stamped image with clear embossing powder, and then used my heat gun to emboss the image. 

After the image was cooled, I took a sponge, and inked over top of this doily image with Champagne ink to give it a heritage look. J

For the wording bracket on this card, I used the M key of Artbooking…See it under the Icon section?
M key - Artbooking I cut the barn red mat at 1 1/2” and the champagne cardstock I cut at 1.7”, which I then stamped my verse on. 

The color seam binding ribbon is the PERFECT ribbon to add to any creation - because you can color it to whatever color you need!  You can sponge on the ink, or soak it in re-inker of the color of your choice! I chose to sponge it in Barn Red ink.

I then used 2 studs from the Rosewood Mini-Medley to finish off the card.
