I chose a simple card this week, I ran short on time.  It was my birthday today,.  So I had plenty to keep me busy.
This card started off with a black cardstock base.  I covered it with deep ivory, that was embossed with swiss dots, by Cuttlebug.  I made the border under by punching 2 sides of paper with the Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch.  I cut 2 pc's of paper from coordinating papers, for the blocks.  The ivory flower was cut, then I inked the inside of the Cuttlebug folder with Tim Holtz distress ink in antique linen, and continued to run through the embosser.  This technique colors the embossing part only. An antique button was applied to the center of the flower, with a ribbon tied in the center.  The heart and the "LOVE" were cut from the Cricut cartridge Sweethearts, using the shadow and normal features.
All are adhered using the ATG, and Pop dots for the sentiment, and heart.
