Live, Laugh, Love

As I'm continuing to use the wonderful supplies that Liz sent me in our Valentine Swap I came up with this elegant card. I followed the March card sketch over at Scrapping Everyday Miracles - a wonderful blog to check out! Their theme this month is Laughter - so I wanted to include that as well.

At the Bitten By The Bug 2 blog the challenge this week is to use your favorite Cricut cut - mine would definitely be the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge! I used it to make the frame, banner and the heart cut that is inside the card.

On the top right corner I white heat embossed a swirl image.

I popped up the layered frame cuts around the image.  The card panel had a floral image embossed on it so I coloured the raised areas with a silver gel pen.

I silver heat embossed the sentiment on the banner and then hand drew stitching lines around the edge with a black pen.  After I swiped the edges with a blue H2O paint.

I silver heat embossed the heart sentiment on the white heart die cut and again added the stitching lines and blue H2O paint, swiping some in the middle of the bible verse.
