Heart of the Thank You Card

Welcome to my blog.  I'm here today with cards for two different occasions each featuring an exquisite chipboard design by Creative Embellishments

Today I am  presenting the Creative Embellishments Heartbeat Border and

My first card is extra special - made for an Aunt who recently had open heart surgery.  
What could be better and more appropriate than the Creative Embellishments Heartbeat Border.

You can see below how cool and unique this chipboard piece is.  It's also a large 12in long border piece so it can be used on a layout, project, or cut into pieces to fit cards and tags. 

I embossed the border using Stampendous - Frantage Aged Ivory Embossing Enamels  and then backed each heart with a piece of lace.  I was fortunate to find lace that had hearts (thanks Hobby Lobby). 

Here is a dimensional look at the Heartbeat Border.  I love the finished piece.
My paper choice for these two cards is Stamperia Dream 12x12 collection.  

This is the second card.  It's a "thank you" card for my Aunt who helped with a graduation party I recently hosted.  Not the same aunt with the open heart surgery, mind you.  

This also uses Stamperia's Dream  paper collection.

I used the Creative Embellishments Oval Frame for the card embossed with 

The frame is quite large and perfect for a photo on a layout  - but I opted to have it highlight my sentiment on the card.  

Thanks for stopping.
