Say it with…Handmade Gifts

Posted by on December 2, 2011 in Annabelle Stamps | 10 comments

Hello again! It is Friday so that means another challenge at AnnaBelle Stamps.

I often make card sets to give as gifts for birthdays and Christmas, so that it what I have made here. I have seen a lot of negative die cut images used in Blogland of late, so I thought I would try my hand at it. This beautiful card by Carly Robertson was all the inspiration that I needed. There are 6 cards in the set, complete with a box to house them in.

I clear embossed the cursive background (BBD#6) behind the heart and popped the front panel onto some foam dimensionals. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Dotted Flowers set.



Stamps: AnnaBelle Stamps “Dotted Flowers” stamp set, AnnaBelle Stamps “BBD#6” stamp set
Ink: Versafine Ink – Onyx Black, VersaMark Watermark ink
Card: Regal Craft Card – White textured, Bazzil card stock – various colours
Other Supplies: AnnaBelle 4mm pearls, Fiskars stamp press, American Crafts clear embossing powder, heat gun, anti static pad, Die-Namics Hearts-a-Plenty die, Cuttlebug, foam dimensionals, AnnaBelle Kraft Box C6, Sheer white ribbon

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out what the rest of the DT have created. Their links are on my side bar.
