Well, how is August treating you so far?? It's hot here in the Midwest and the Ohio Valley could stand some rain. Hope your area is a bit better than here.
I am a lover for embossing folders and dies. So, when I spied an embossing folder that also cuts, well I knew I just had to have that.
The folder I am using on the card below is by Crafters Companion and is called Heart Flourish.
I cut a 4" X 5 1/4" white CS panel and embossed/cut it. I also cut a small pink piece to get that center heart shape and positioned in that center heart. To show off the beautiful embossed design, I used foam ink pods to apply pink ink to the raised design. I love those things. They work so well in coloring embossed areas on CS.
The flowers are stamped onto pink CS using a dark reddish ink. The ink is Fresco Chalk Finish dye ink and the color is Paprika Prado. These inks have been around for ages. I have all 30 colors and I just love them They remind me of old world colors and I use them from time to time. If you ever see them check them out. This ink line has some really gorgeous colors.
The flowers and leaves are from Dare2B Artzy
I fussy cut those flowers out added some glitter and glued them to the card front.
My bow -
This bow is a simple double loop bow.
It's small but mighty. It makes a "mighty fine" bow.

Thanks for stopping in today.
This Friday nite/Saturday is the annual Stampaway stamping convention in Northern Cincinnati, Ohio. I can't wait to see what all the vendors will be showing in their booths. I have made a list of a few things I want and can't wait to see what else I wind up not being able to live without. LOL
I will take pics and share with you next week.
Have a great week
