Catching Up

It's been a LONG time since I posted to this blog, and I apologize to my readers for that.  Life has gotten VERY busy and I've had little time for paper crafting at all, let alone blogging.  I DID manage to make a few cards over the last few months, and over the next few days, I'll show them here - and hopefully sometime soon I'll be able to get back to more regular paper crafting.

This card was put together quickly for an important 35th anniversary, made of several layers:
  • Background paper was inked with red ink
  • Next three layers up were cut with successive dies from the Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles - largest one from white glimmer paper with the smaller white cut from the center of it, and red glimmer paper cut with the die in-between the other two.  The smaller white piece has the edges inked with red ink.
  • The focal was stamped using JustRite Antique Valentine Tags One stamps, using red ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder before being cut with the matching cutting dies. Then it was set in a red frame cut with Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two.
For the inside I used similar layers:

Starting with a background piece cut from the same background piece using the Spellbinder's Resplendent Rectangles dies.  The message was stamped on a white oval that was cut using a die from Spellbinder's Radiant Rectangles.  The frame started as a red glimmer paper cut with a die from Spellbinder's Fancy Tags Two.  It was then cut into pieces to frame the oval as you see here.
