** 8/1/17 Top 3 at Tuesday Throwdown! **
Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday – I hope your week has started off with a bang! Today is my post day on the a2z Scrapbooking blog and I’m excited to share a DT inspiration project using several Hero Arts products – Vintage Travel Digital Kit, Love by Lia stamp set, Intense Black ink, Paper Layering Eiffel Tower die and Detail Black Embossing Powder. I created a CAS anniversary card for the hubs done in one of my favorite color combos of black and white with a pop of red. So romantic! ;)
This card was super easy! I printed the Map overlay and the Postmark stamp in a 5.5″ square area along with the Paris stamp off to one side (all from the Vintage Travel Digital Kit) on white cardstock. I trimmed the map area to a size slightly smaller than my card base and matted it on black cardstock, then cut out the little Paris stamp and adhered it with dimensional foam at an angle over the postmark.
I cut a strip of red and white polkadot paper, matted it on black and adhered it across the bottom portion of the map panel. I stamped ‘cherish’ from the Love by Lia stamp set in Versamark and embossed it with the Detail Black Embossing Powder.
I adhered the Paper Layering Eiffel Tower die cut with dimensional foam and finished the front with varying sizes of Berry Red Crystal Drops. I’m loving how this turned out!
I decorated the inside with a leftover piece of the polkadot paper, stamped the sentiment from the same Love by Lia stamp set and matted the panel on red cardstock. I went one step further and stamped the bottom portion of the sentiment again in red ink on a scrap piece of white cardstock, fussy cut the little hearts and adhered them over top of the hearts in the sentiment, leaving just a tiny ‘shadow’ of black.
