Basic Black & White – You Are Loved – by Esther Asbury

(Current US Shipping Special – $3.95 – $5.95)

Good Tuesday morning! We continue our week featuring cards done up in black and white with this lovely Valentine (or any time card) from Esther. It’s just a quick reminder that you are loved! Take a look:

How absolutely lovely is this!

Esther incorporated so much interest here that I am just swooning!

The focal image heart is stamped with florals from a set in our Floral Cluster Series and overstamped with a sentiment from our Typewritten Sentiment Series.

A Tim Holtz die was used for the interesting cutout design while beautiful venise lace borders the bottom of the card.

Not to even mention the lovely checked paper (left over from a Christmas pad).

I can’t think of a more lovely reminder one could send to let the recipient know they are loved!

Thanks so much, Esther, for this beautiful inspiration!

I know it will inspire many!

Mixed Media #1 by Tim Holtz (Sizzix)

What a fun die set to add some texture and interest to your projects!

With the Mixed Media Dies you are using the negative space left over, not the positive which is cut out, as there are no cutting blades along the perimeter of these dies.
