Last week the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog announced their first challenge "What is your style?" It is interesting to think about your own style. I started with trying to determine what I use most frequently and it seems that I consistently use my Spellbinders dies. My favorite cards to make use Spellbinders dies as the base. That was the seed to my design and I made a card using some of my favorite Spellbinders dies.
For the base I die cut two pieces of ivory paper using Spellbinders 5x7 Elegant Labels 4.
Spellbinders Gold Labels Four provided the elegant die cuts in red and ivory. The ivory paper was embossed using an Anna Griffin Cuttlebug folder- poppy. The next layer was my hoarded item- my gold paper. My mom purchased this paper for me quite some time ago...I am guessing it was about five years ago. The gold paper is unlike the stiff gold card stock paper that you usually find in the craft store. The surface finish is soft to touch and the paper is thin. I actually keep it in a protective sheet cover in a binder. So, yes, this uncut sheet of gold paper was definitely hoarded! The hoarded gold paper was die cut using the larger lace heart from Spellbinders Lace Hearts. Ivory paper was die cut using the smaller heart die from the same set. "I love you" from JustRite's Just the Right Words was heat embossed as shown.
The inside is a fabulous sentiment stamp from Quietfire Design. What a perfect sentiment for a Valentine's Day card!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you all have a wonderful week!
