The last set for this month's blog hop can be used for Valentine's Day, as both of the images are in the shape of hearts. As you may be aware, these images (like yesterday's) also coordinate with other MFP sets. The front of my criss-cross card uses the wreath of black-eyed susans; whereas the insert uses an image from another set, Black-Eyed Susans for Encouragement. After coloring the wreath, I cut it out and mounted it on a heart-shaped panel and centered it. The designer paper for this set is the same as one from yesterday, Basic Grey's Cappella, which coordinates very nicely with the MFP August Greens cardstock.
I stamped the pansy heart with Versafine Satin Red and clear embossed it,, then colored the pansies using Copic markers. After embossing the white card base with a Sizzix Valentine embossing folder, I attached a piece of Authentique Uncommon designer paper and a thin strip of the same MFP Red Hots cardstock as the Lacey Circle shape behind the heart.
Again, I remind you to comment on the following blogs for your chance to win some stamps. We're so happy you joined us this week for our blog hop. Good luck in the drawings.
