14 Days of Love- Day 14

This is my last post for the 14 Days of Love in conjunction with the ABCs Blog Hop. I hope you have enjoyed my love inspired projects! If you wish to see all of my 14 days of love projects, please click here.

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter D. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their D element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Linda's blog ~ Scrappy Therapy.

If you came from Lisa's blog then you're on the right track!

For my D, I wanted to show you some dry embossing using my Cuttlebug and the Close To My heart embossing folders. The hearts embossing folder is new in the Seasonal Expressions, and is perfect for today- Happy Valentines Day!

I used the hearts embossing folder on White cardstock- simply place the piece you wish to emboss in the folder, then run it through your machine.

I used this as the base of a Valentines Day card for my husband. White, brown and gold make this card masculine but the hearts still provide a love feel to the card.

I edged the dry embossed background with gold shimmer trim, and stamped a sentiment onto a tag. I used some washi to thread through the tag, and dipped the tag in some glue and then gold glitter. This card doesn't need much, as the dry embossed background provides a great detail.

Your next stop on our Everything ABC'S blog Hop is Shelly of Just One Pretty Piece.

    so clever to have folded the washi to thread through the tag.
