Paper Craft Crew Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #PCC324: Meant to Be

Good morning!  Love is definitely in the air and we have some great products in this years Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogs that sometimes less is more and just let these beauties take center stage.  Today Paper Craft Crew Tic-Tac-Toe challenge and I used two different directions, Punch/Diecut-Valentines-Metallic, and Vintage-Valentines-Texture for this beauty.

I started with Soft Suede cardstock for the cardbase and then added Basic Black cardstock as a mat for the Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper (I love this simple woodgrain) and then stamped a small heart from the Meant to Be stamp set using Soft Suede ink in a diagonal cross the DSP.

Next I took a piece of the Grapefruit Grove Foil (a SAB freebie!) and cut it out with the Big Shot and the Be Mine Stitched Framelits.  I took the center of the heart and embossed it with the Big Shot and Lace Dynamic Embossing Folder.  This foil paper is absolutely stunning embossed!

Next I stamped the greeting on Very Vanilla cardstock using Basic Black ink and cut it out with the same framelits.  I used a sponge and Soft Suede ink to sponge the scalloped heart and popped the greeting piece only up with dimensionals.

The final touch...a bow tied with Gold 3/8" Metallic Edge Ribbon that was colored with my Calypso Coral Light Stampin' Blends Marker.

This card is perfection!  All the texture and shine from the foil is just what I wanted, and the background doesn't compete with the focal piece.  Make sure to check out the other cards the design team is sharing for inspiration using this challenge and we would love for you to play along with us and share what you create!
