A new card - Finally!


This week has been a trying one, in terms of feeling bad, and taking my mother to dr's appointments. But I got the energy to do a little crafting, and here's the result - an anniversary card for my husband. It was our 5th last weekend (note the five hearts), but I was too sick to do any celebrating.
I was inspired by the color inspiration from http://www.kwernerdesign.com/blog/?p=1218.
The layout of this card was inspired by Daniela Dobson's card, as published in Cards magazine, February 2007 issue, page 21. There's a photo of it here: http://picasaweb.google.com/danieladobson/Published#5113486286667215650.
Daniela's blog is http://danieladobson.blogspot.com/ .

I had fun using my Fiskars scalloped heart-shaped punches and the coordinating stamps. Of course, I used my Fiskars Compact Stamp Press with my acrylic stamps. That tool makes stamping a breeze - Love it! I heat-embossed the ink, and popped 2 of the hearts with foam dots for dimension. It is a gloriously beautiful day here in Northern Virginia~ I hope you enjoy your day - and the card.
