MC Jan/15 - Plum Blossom - This Heart Longing
Suzanne from Quietfire Design asked me to make a card using the embossing folders from the Cuttlebug "Plum Blossom" set and "This Heart Longing" quote stamp... Haven't used this embossing set in a very long time... so it was nice to resurrect it.
The first background I made became a reject... but I used it to die cut the hearts, so all was not lost...
On the inside I'm using some melted down beads... One of our quilling gals mentioned how to do it, so decided to try. Didn't quite work the way she mentioned, but maybe I had a different kind of bead. Adjusted the temp and it finally worked.. I'm going to make more of them BIG GRIN.
Anyway you can see all the details and descriptions as well as the rejected background by clicking on any card image. Enjoy
