Pootles Design Team My Hero – Week 2

14088395_10153745365531603_281310922678395855_nThis week I’ve been feeling very loved up, no idea why, so have challenged myself to come up with a love/anniversary card and here’s what I came up with:

Cherry Cobbler and Gold is one of my favourite colour combinations, I think they look so rich and luxurious together so they had to be used for this card. The heart border stamp comes from the Birthday Blooms set and is one I’ve been longing to use. The cute little ladybirds come from the Love You Lots hostess set which is one of my favourites of the annual catalogue.

To make the gold layer I heat embossed the image in clear powder on the gold foil and cut it out, a simpler way would have been to use the Best Badge punch, but I don’t have this my collection…..yet!
