IndigoBlu week - Jo Firth Young

Same stamp as IsasArt used yesterday, yet completely different look. Jo Firth Young went with white embossing on a kraft card adding some lovely embossed hearts as embellishments.
What do you think?

Cut a 14.5x14.5cm card from brown Bazill card.
Cut a Kraft card panel 12.5x12.5cm.  Roughen/distress the edges.
Ink up the IndigoBlu stamp with clear embossing and stamp in centre of the panel.  Emboss with white embossing powder.
Attach to the card blank with double sided tape.
Use a black fine pen (a Distress Marker could be used) to freehand draw a border around the panel.
Die cut hearts from chipboard - emboss the 3 largest:
Emboss the biggest heart with Stampendous Frantage Shabby White embossing powder, Middle heart with Stampedous Frantage Aged Silver, and the smallest with gold.  Embossing with 2 layers to give extra depth.
Punch two small holes in the top edge of the card (see photo for placement).
Thread bakers twine through the holes and tie from top to bottom - on the right hand side tie the white heart to the string (use a hole punched a hole in the heart).
Add the smaller hearts to left hand side attaching with double sided tape and 3d foam.

Brown Card Blank 14.5x14.5cm (created from Bazill card)
Kraft card panel 12.5x12.5cm
IndigoBlu stamp 'Truly Madly Deeply'
Frantage Embossing Powders: Shabby White & Aged Silver

See you tomorrow
