A bit of a strange one today! I was asked by a colleague to make an engagement card for her sister and when I asked what she wanted she said 'Tacky' (very quickly followed by the statement - I know you don't do tacky!) This was then changed to 'anything a bit over the top will be fine'. Now regular visitors to my blog will know very well that I don't do 'over the top' either so this was going to be very difficult. Having finished a card which I thought was a bit OTT I actually quite like the finished effect so I'm not too sure the recipient will but this is about as far as I could go!
I started with a DL card blank made with Cherry Cobbler and matted on a piece of the shiny spotty DSP from Holly Berry Speciality (which has not surfaced since Christmas). I then took a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and punched three sets of hearts with the Heart of Hearts punch and tied a knot of Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding around one end before fixing onto the DSP. I punched one of the largest hearts in Cherry Cobbler and layered a Very Vanilla heart, which had been run through the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, on top and fixed this onto the card with a dimensional. You won't recognise the sentiment yet, but watch out for some brand new SU products coming very soon.
Don't forget that none of the items in the Spring Mini will be available after 30th April so you only have a few days left to get anything you really want before it goes.
