Spring is Love

Hello everyone,

Hope you enjoy the week-end and that you had lots of time for crafting.  I did a last-minute card for the challenge at The Shabby Tea Room this afternoon. I love the inspiration photo and it reminded me of a piece of fabric in my stash. Hope you like what I did with the fabric heart!


A close-up of the sentiment

Project details:

  • White and cream cardstock
  • Designer paper (Unknown)
  • Printed fabric for heart
  • Whimsy sentiment stamp (Birthday Letter Seals)
  • Lili of the Valley postage stamp
  • Birdcage chipboard embellishment
  • Paper roses
  • Lace
  • Pearls
  • Seam binding”Rose petal”
  • Skwiglues “Crystal”
  • Tim Holtz distress ink “Antique Linen” and “Victorian Velvet”

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my card. Enjoy your week and happy crafting.

    These are not cards my dear friend, they are beautiful works of art to be displayed with pride by the lucky recipients. I love what you’ve done with the fabric heart for the center and how you’ve used the lace and flowers with the bird cage. So elegant and pristine. A gorgeous creation. “Hugs”

    A truly stunning card Amelia. I love your inclusion of fabric into the card design. Very clever – the colors are stunning together and I love the bow trimming at the top of the card. Good luck with the challenges and I hope all goes well tomorrow.
