I was so lucky to win a spot in the Stretch Your Stamps 2 Online Card Class, and I have really been enjoying it!
Jennifer McGuire made a card on Day 2 where she used perfect pearls on black cardstock. I needed a card for my boyfriend for our 5 year anniversary, so I thought this technique would be perfect for this card.
I used a combination of mint and white perfect pearls for the heart background.
Jennifer used dies to cut out a sentiment and a window on her card. I don't have a die cut machine, so I used a circle punch instead and heat embossed my sentiment on a vellum strip so that my sentiment also could float over the circle window.
I'm so happy with how this card turned out! And my boyfriend also thought the card was really nice. One of my best, he though. Always nice to hear! :-)
As I'm stretching my stamps these days, I also made a feminine card using the same background stamp. I will share this card with you tomorrow.
Have a great day!
