TOMIC 34 - Oval card and embossing

Hi everyone! A new challenge starts on TOMIC this week and our theme is to make an oval card and use heat or dry embossing. I hope you can join us this time and as always there's some beautiful inspiriation from my DT friends.

I've used sweet Valentino, coloured with distress inks and cut out. My oval card is embossed using a Crafts Too hearts embossing folder and I've sanded back the hearts to reveal the kraft core of the coredinations card. I used the Doohickey 'so wrapped lovely' die for the heart elements which are cut from silver glitter card and I trimmed out the hearts from the die cut piece then layered them over another oval of embossed card with some sizzex die cut numbers. The Doohickey romantic lace was used to cut more glitter card to edge the second oval and I trimmed slits into the border once cut to make fit around the oval.

Enjoy your day :)

Hi Chris!
You have done a wonderful job of coloring Valentino. I love the hair dark. So, so cute. Very special for a very special day.
The oval has been made beautifully with the hearts in the middle framing the 25. I love the romantic lace border around the frame too.
Super, super job.
Hugs Maz
