Moxie Fab Start to Finish Challenge
This is the card that I entered for the Moxie Fab Start to Finish Challenge. What a great week it has been over at Paper Crafts and Moxie Fab! I have really enjoyed each day.
I made this card using some new stamps that I picked up at Michaels recently. I just love the way the heart came out! I stamped it using basic black ink, then used Crystal Effects on it. While the CE was still wet, I sprinkled Martha Stewart onyx glitter over it, and wowza! It looks really pretty in "real life". I'm not sure you can tell how nicely it glitters.
I embossed the black background with the Cuttlebug D'vine Swirl embossing folder. I really like this folder!
Since this card is for my husband for Valentine's Day, I didn't want it to be too "girly". I also wanted to emphasize the "I Love You", which is why I kept everything black except for the sentiment.
I don't typically carry the design over to the inside of the card, so this was a new thing for me. It was a challenge, but a fun one!
Please leave me a comment! I am new at this whole card-making thing, so I would love any input that you would like to share. Thanks!
