The Craft's Meow February Blog Hop

Thursday, February 7, 2013


If you're here for my CASE Study card, please scroll down to the next post. I'm delighted to be taking part in my first blog hop with The Craft's Meow!! The theme of the hop is Valentine/Love. I don't usually use a lot of red on my cards but I wanted a nice contrast with the white embossing and I love how it turned out!


The top half of the card I stamped and embossed in white using the large background stamp from Sent with Love by Nina B Designs for The Craft's Meow.


I made a custom sentiment using 'Sweet' from Lovely Labels 18 from The Craft's Meow and 'heart' from Sew Lovely. I added a paper doily and a little bit of pink ric rac, I love a pink, red and white color combo!


The pretty cluster of flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I also added a little bit of Blossom Twine from SRM Stickers.


Next up on the hop is the lovely Gayatri Murali. If you miss any links along the way go back to The Craft's Meow blog to see the full list of blog participants. Enjoy the hop!! : ) Here are the stamp sets from The Craft's Meow that I used on my card.
