Grungy Love for Him

Hello All Lanette Here!

Today I am going to share a sweet grungy card that I made for my husband. After all Valentines day is up fast!

Plus it was a great reason to get a little ink on my hands :)

Lets start by taking a look at my finished card, then I will show you how I made it :)


Sin City Supplies Used: Rosette Hearts Plate of Rubber & For Him Plate of Rubber

Other Supplies Used: Martha Steward - Embossing Powder. Core'dinations Cardstock. Vellum. Bo Bunny Bling. Tim Holtz Distress Ink. Top Boss Embossing Ink. Versa Ink Pad. Embossing Folder. Foam Tape.

Now lets look at my process......

I started by building my base using the beautiful background stamp in the Rosette Heart Collection. I used gold embossing powder to make my image POP!


I continued stamping and embossing all the elements of my card.  A boarder and flower from the Rosette Heart Colletion and my title from the For Him Collection. 

** Tip for fine embossing I always use my Versafine Stamp Ink and My foam stamp pad... as you can see its well loved!



After everything was embossed I pulled out some Distress Ink to add a bit of color.  Plus I just love the way the embossing  resists the ink!


.....A bit of RED :)


....A touch of BROWN :)


Next it was time to trim and fussy cut all my cards elements. Here is a look at the flower pieces I cut out. After I cut them out I layered them with a bit of foam tape and added a bit of bling to give my card some dimension.


Finally it was tome to assemble...

I added some few layers of card stock and just a bit of stitching and my card was done! I hope the hubby will like it :)
