PP278: A Clean-and-Simple Challenge

It's time for another challenge from the Paper Players, and I made this card.


This week's challenge is a clean-and-simple challenge from Sandy.

I started by stamping the heart image on a panel of Whisper White, and embossed the brick image on the panel using an embossing folder.

The trick is that I used a piece of cardboard as an embossing diffuser so that the brick pattern would not be embossed over the heart. I punched a heart out of the cardboard beforehand, and I layered it over the embossing folder.

I cut a sentiment twice, layered the two together, and adhered the whole to the front panel.
Finally, I attached the panel to the card base with Dimentionals.

Stamp: Language of Love
Paper: Whisper White, Foil Paper (gold), cardboard paper
Ink: Real Red
Tim Holtz Bricked EF, Little B Handwritten Dies, Heart Punch, Dimentionals
