Good Morning!

This card was made for Valentine's Day, and also for Cheery Lynn's Weekly Card Challenge to create a "Framed Card".  Instead of the traditional way of framing this card, I made a strip of "paper lace" and inserted it within the cut frame of the heart.  Before adhering it, I put it through my crimper, so that it would stand out, and bring more attention to the beautiful Celtic heart within the center of the card.   At the bottom of the card, I cut the "paper lace" at an angle so I could bring the bottom of the heart to a point.

and here is a side view:

  1. Hi Deb,

    Wonderful job with your card. I love it when people use the dies a little differently. Thank you very much for joining us this week at Cheery Lynn Designs.

Thinking of You!
Welcome to my garden of paper petals. Nothing makes happier than giving a card to someone who treasures it. A friend of mine loves the color purple, so for her birthday, I made her a card with a large purple mum as the center, with light colored purple daisies, some dark purple flowers for depth, and some baby's breath as filler. My friend just loved the card, and has it showcased in a shadow box from Michael's. She couldn't wait to show me what she had done. Imagine my surprise when I walked into her family room, and there on the wall was my card hanging up on the wall. It looks beautiful! I hope you all enjoy it!

More to come ......

I am very new at this blog business, and it has taken me much longer than I anticipated to post my information, so please bear with me, as this "garden" is a definite work in progress!

Paper Hugs,
