Simply Less is More # 155

Hello All!
I hope I find you well today. Don`t you just love it when a plan comes together? I`ll explain.

It`s theme week at Simply Less is More and this week it`s to make a BABY card. I had no time over the weekend to get into the craft room as I was holding a little party for my dads 82nd birthday on sunday. Ofcourse monday means back to work which leaves little time to craft but Tara`s new venture  Make the Day Special Stamp Store 
opened its doors and I found some time to place an order ( it would have been rude not to). Over the past couple of days I`ve been toying with an idea for my LiM card with the intention of having a crafty day today. Then the postman arrived with my package from Tara this morning and everything fell into place. I`d ordered the Valentine stamp set from Avery Elle because it has some lovely heart stamps and by sheer good luck the hearts fit my Sizzix Heart Dies perfectly. This is what I came up with,

I made a panel slightly smaller than my base card and ran it through a Darice EF, leaving a small space for the sentiment.I backed the panel onto some pink card leaving a slim border.
The hearts are stamped with Versacolor Orchid and embossed in clear EP to give some texture and shine then placed at irregular intervals with some silver thread.
The sentiment is by Personal Impressions stamped in Memento Black.

Don`t forget to check out Tara`s new store. She has some fabulous US stamps at really reasonable prices.

Thanks for popping in..Lynne xxx
