Label Love #4 - Mr. & Mrs.

Good Tuesday morning to you.  Today's card is the fourth of seven using the Label Love stamp set.  It could be a wedding or anniversary card.  I used the sketch from the Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge #60.

As you can see, I rotated the card 90 degrees to the left.  The base is Very Vanilla card stock.  I added a piece of Modern Medley designer paper and a piece of Very Vanilla embossed with the Fancy Fan embossing folder to a piece of Basic Black card stock.  A strip of Basic Black card stock was added and then Victoria Crochet Trim added over that.  Gold brads were added before attaching this layer to the card.  The image from the Best of Love stamp set was heat embossed on Very Vanilla card stock using VersaMark and Gold Embossing Powder.  The image was then matted with Basic Black card stock and attached using Dimensionals.  The Mr. & Mrs. image was heat embossed on Very Vanilla with VersaMark and Black Embossing Powder and punched out with the Artisan Label Punch.  A piece of Basic Black card stock was punched with the Artisan Label Punch, cut in half and used to mat the top and bottom of the sentiment.  I made a small bow from gold elastic cord and attached it to the sentiment with a gold brad.  I
attached it to the card with a Glue Dot at the bottom and double Dimensionals at the top.  The flower in the center of the heart was made using the Blossoms Simply Pressed Clay Mold.  I added some Very Vanilla ink refill to the clay as well as some Gold Stampin' Glitter, worked it into the clay and pressed it in the mold.  I usually put my molds in the freezer for 15 minutes or so because they pop out so much better.  After it dried, I attached it to the card with glue.  The glitter gives it that little extra touch and you can add as little or as much as you'd like.  There you have it.  I'm working my way through this stamp set; three left to go.  Thanks for taking a look.  I'll see you soon.
