MC Jan/11 - Much Love HB

So I recently joined some Yahoo groups (
Spellbinders-Wizard this one is only to do with those 2 items) and (Die Cuts All which deals with any die cutting or cutting machine), and picked up a few tips already... both can be seen in this card; weaving using Spellbinders die and decorative embossing using Impressabilities stencils. Absolutely love both techniques.

I made this card in mind for my aunt whose birthday falls a couple of days before Valentines day, so I combined both in one card. Click on either image to see details, descriptions etc. Enjoy

I also used Quietfire Design rubber stamps (flourish Heart & Flourishes on one of the borders).

And it also fits for a WHOLE BUNCH of challenges:
Ann's Creative Nook #GCA119 Use Hearts
