Oops - nearly forgot!!!

Good grief - here we are at Monday again and I forgot that today I should be posting my card for the Crafty Cardmakers Spotlight challenge - should have saved my earlier post for tomorrow!!


Anyway - the spotlight this week falls on Plastic - we want you to use some kind of plastic on your creation - Friendly Plastic, Shrink Plastic, Acetate & I'm sure there must be many other kinds too!

I used Friendly Plastic for my DT card, I melted the Friendly Plastic with my heat gun and used a heart shaped cutter (like a metal cookie cutter but much smaller) to cut the hearts - I can only do 1 at a time because the plastic has to harden again before you can safely remove the cutter. I stamped a swirl on to the stamped & distressed background and glued the hearts on to resemble flowers. I made the word love from alphabet stamps and stamped it onto another piece of card. Added lace and flowers to finish it all off.

This card is entered for these challenges:
Paper Sundaes - Use 2 of the following: Flowers, Lace, Distressing and the Colour Pink
Stamp Something - Something for your Valentine
Stamp Man - Hearts
AiFactory  - Valentine's Day/Love 
Paper Crafting Journey - Love is in the air 
Pixie Dust Studio - Be my Valentine 
Rainbow Lady's - It's all about love
Creative Craft World  - Love

What a pretty card, I love the colours and the shrink plastic really adds to the card. Never used it myself but this looks like a great way to add dimension.
