My heart belongs to you

I made this card for Steve for our forthcoming wedding anniversary and am entering the Less is More 'Dry Embossing' Challenge.  I'm also entering the Alphabet Challenge 'Y for You Choose' (I've chosen die cutting and embossing to make an anniversary card) and Sparkles Monthly Challenge 'Clean and Simple'.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk
Stamp: Hannelie's 'My heart belongs to you' digi (freebie from Hannelie's blog)
Die: Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Classic Heart'
Embossing: X-cut 'Small Polka Hearts folder
Card: Dark red embossed, white silk
Paper: White silk

I trimmed white card to a square, layered it onto red card and attached it to the centre of the card blank.  I die cut the largest Classic Heart and embossed it with the heart embossing folder.  This was attached to the centre with Pinflair glue so I could easily wriggle it to the centre of the card.  I printed Hannelie's sentiment onto white paper (frustratingly my printer is refusing to print onto the white card I've always used!) which was then glued onto white card, trimmed and attached it across the heart with foam tape.

For those who haven't seen Hannelie's blog, there are loads of fabulous sentiments you can download.
