Fusion Challenge - Two Hearts

"...two hearts that beat as one..."  Yep. Still singing!

And who would not be singing after looking at the inspiration photo from Fusion's Two Hearts Challenge?  Who?

I tried something totally different this time as my supply of wood-grain paper is coming to an end.  I found a similar colored cardstock from American Crafts in my stash of papers, inked up a wood-grain embossing folder from Darice with a bit of Versamark + grey ink and ran it through my Cuttlebug... I am thrilled with the results. What do you think?

Inside sentiment:
"Hoping doesn't seem to make a difference. 
But you, and prayer, never fail to make me feel better! 
Thanks for being such a true friend."
 
Supplies:  Smokey Slate CS from PTI;  SSS, MFT, and Paper Smooches sentiment dies.

Love the pink and black against the wood grain. The little heart peeking under the larger...darling detail. Nice crisp sentiment too! Love.

Wonderful card. I love how you made your own woodgrain paper. It's fantastic. And, I like the trio consisting of 2 stars and a heart.

So pretty Michele. Love the wood grain background with black and pink... the die-cut word looks fantastic.

Good grief, I thought it was actually real wood, like a veneer! I think that means your experiment was a success and needs to be repeated....awesome card!

Leigh Penner said...

I ordered these dies, but the stamps were OOS.... I love how you used them!

Seriously, this wood veneer is made from an embossing folder? Sheer genius and soooo pretty! Another word die I'm going to track down...Crushing all over this!
