Friends with Flair!

Happy Friday! If it's Friday, it must be time for Unity's Friends with Flair.



I didn't want to post my husband's Valentine before the big day -- yes, he does sometimes look at my blog! I stamped the Giving It All Meaning background, then added a layer of vellum over top to soften it a bit before putting the three hearts on top, popping up the middle one with pop dot tape. Added a red frame, and it was done! Since this has about as many layers as I ever manage, I'm going to add this to the layering challenge at DYSU (Do You Stack Up?). And I hope Simon Says Stamp and Show means it when they say "Anything Goes"!
Don't forget to check out all the other Friends with Flair inspiration over on the Unity blog. Have a great weekend! 


Supplies: white & Stampin' Up real red cardstock, vellum, Unity Giving It All Meaning & August 2010 Kit of the Month (All You Need) stamps, Versamark & Stampin' Up real red inks, clear & white embossing powder, pop dot tape Pin It Now!

Very pretty. My husband reads my blog too...BUT I actually end up making my cards for HIM in front of HIM! LOL....I never get a chance otherwise.

Gorgeous! Love the vellum idea - it really does give it a sweet, fuzzy feel. And that middle heart is my favourite. :)

I just love the effect the vellum gives. It is just beautiful, in a very guy friendly way. If you know what I mean. Ha.
