I Love Purple!

I love dark rich purple, I love dark rich any color really! There's just something about that purple though....! I'm getting cards ready for different special events I have coming up so I created this love card, intentionally leaving it sentiment free so I can use it for anything that might come up! You never know right?! When I look at a card in the store I try to check out the reason I was drawn to that particular card and a lot of times it's because of the embossing. So, this time I embossed! I actually did two types of embossing, heat embossing with embossing powder and I also ran the ivory paper through my Cuttlebug using a texture embossing folder called "D'vine Swirls". I think it gives it a more elegant look suitable for a wedding or a special anniversary! The stamp is another from "The Rubber Cafe" that I can't stop coming up with ideas for! What do you think?



I also added pearl buttons and a sheer purple bow. On the envelope I used the marker technique to add only the word "Love" on the envelope. The stamp I used also came from The Rubber Cafe (hey, I'm on their DT and like their stamps! LOL!) It's called, appropriately "Love Words". It would make a great background or strip stamp if you ever needed one!

Don't forget The Rubber Cafe is having a great deal for those bargain hunters, like me, out there! Here's more info;
