Heart You for Leonie

Hello lovely peeps

 I'm back with another card sample using Leonie's new embossing folders.

To make my card background I dabbed 'Mountain Rose' and 'Butterscotch' Adirondack inks onto my craft mat and spritzed them with water. I dragged some Clarity card through the inks and then sprinkled rock salt on the puddles and left it to dry.

I drew some letters of the size I wanted and cut them out of white paper when I was happy with them to use as templates before I cut them out of coloured card.

Tip: to get the 'O' looking so neat on my finished card  I cut the middle out first using a zero die and then drew a bigger 0 around it with the same sort of 'line' width as the other letters. I also cut a heart out of white card with Leonie's Folk Heart base die. I ran all of these through the 'Growing Love' embossing folder and glued them in place onto the background.

The 'Love' stamp is from the new 'Love Hearts' stamp set and I have stamped it onto kraft card with Versamark and added white embossing powder.
I've finished off with some organza ribbon and buttons.
