Thank You Heart...



I found this cool technique whilst browsing on Homespun With Heart, Danielle Flanders is one of my favourite card designers and if you like, what I like to call 'clean shabby chic' then her blog is well worth a visit. 
The technique is oh so simple, one of those that you wish you'd thought of - Debossing with chipboard.
I found that larger shapes on textured card work best and after a bit of faffing with my Cuttlebug plates the sandwich I used was, from the bottom, A plate, C plate, B plate, cardstock then chipboard.


Here's the finished card, hope you can see the heart, it looks a lot more defined in 'real life'!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend.  I'll be back tomorrow with the new Ribbon Girl challenge.
