Showing Flourishes Some LOVE

Flourishes, LLC recently released a love set that is truly beautiful. It's called Lace Heart.

I Love Thee card:

I decided to make a card that is a bit more on the masculine side (the designer paper is from a stack of Wild Asparagus that I'd bought at Hobby Lobby - isn't it rich?). The card base is Bordering Blue, with panels of the designer paper. The lace heart was stamped in White Stazon ink on a sheet of acetate (which isn't apparent in my picture). Other pictures and angles of this showed a flash or my reflection, so this was all I could use for this post. LOL!

The frame to my sentiment is a piece of Ranger Grungeboard (swirls), painted with white acrylic paint. Boy, do I love this stuff! It's flexible chipboard, even after it's inked or painted. I love that!!! Rather than pierce the cardstock with brads, I glued it to the card with glue dots and covered the holes in the frame with Silver Bell Dew Drops. They really match the grey-blue hue of the cardstocks.

The sentiment is part of the main text of the set - "How do I love thee? Let me count the ways." I thought the traditional text was SO endearing.

Thanks for stopping by!
