A Little Cricut Love

Today I wanted to make a valentine inspired by the CASE Study challenge. The muse this week is Amy Sheffer with this lovely card;

I decided to go with coordinating paper from my old DCVW
Black Currant stack. I stamped the Hero Arts Florish background with Versa Mark & clear embossed. Added a glittery silver ribbon trim, and a simple button with some of my new pink glittery WeR Memories twine. I borrowed my moms Martha Stewart punch for the bottom lace. All together it turned out pretty cool I think. I had seen this new technique (well new to me at least lol )for paper pleating on pintrest, then when this case study came along it was perfect opportunity.

Paper- DCWV Black Currant Stack
Tools- Cricut Expression 2, Storybook, Essentials, & Elegant Edges Cartridges
Martha Stewart Double Arches Punch
Stamps: Hero Arts Florish Background
