I made a card for my husband today. He had to make a hard decision that affected our family and although I had a hard time with it, I absolutely know it was the right decision. I'm going to slip this into his lunch box tomorrow. I did 2 new things on this card that I have never done before; heat embossing and real stitching with my sewing machine.
I am submitting this card on the Cooking With Cricut blog. The challenge this week is all about LOVE. This is the first challenge for this blog. It is full of inspiration and tutorials. I'm also submitting this on the Cricut Couple blog. It's their anniversary, so they are celebrating with and Anniversary challenge.
Here are the details for my card:
Card size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches
Cricut Cartridge ~ Sweethearts ~ all my cuts are from this cartridge. I welded the stamp image in my Gypsy to create the card base. The red mat is just a 1/4 of an inch smaller. I then cut the white mat with my Fiscars papercutter 1/4 of an inch smaller. The lock and key, I believe, were cut at 2.5 inches.
Solid Cardstock ~ Recollections
Cuttlebug ~ Heart Blocks embossing folder
Ranger Perfect Medium
Clear embossing powder
Ribbon ~ Hobby Lobby
Heart brad ~ I just pulled the prongs off and adheared it with glue dots
Cat's Eye Ink ~ Black
Sewing machine ~ I used black thread and then red thread for the stitching.
Sentiment ~ Computer generated
That's it! I am pleased with the way it came out and hope that it makes my husband know how much I love him.
