Here’s my love creation…
FLLC010413
I used a sentiment from the Love Sweet Love stamp set, stamping it on Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock,
and cut it out with a Nestabilities Nested Pennant die.  The layout for my design is from the Cardabilities sketch #66 for this week.  I added the hearts to my design with the Classic and Classic Scallop Heart Nestabilities found in the Flourishes online store, and added a few rolled roses, too.  Finally, I embellished with a Prima pearl spray, some hot pink Kaisercraft rhinestones, a crystal trinket pin, some raspberry crocheted trim, and some metallic white curling ribbon.  The base of my card is the Lacey Circles Nestabilities, and to make it a “card” I added the back shown below…
FLLC010413 back
Just cut out an extra, plain circle, score it at about 1-1 1/2 inches, and glue to the back!  This way you don’t have to compromise part of your design to incorporate the fold!
If you need a little inspiration, it’s never far away with our design team’s creations! Hop on over and see…
