You are Sew Special card made using the Artiste cartridge and the January Stamp of the Month.



Before I start giving details about this card, I thought I would answer a question I got via email and in the comment section yesterday about my cricut cover. I ordered it from Kathy's Cozys and her Etsy shop can be found here ==> Kathy's Cozys

Ok on to today's project. This card is made using the January stamp of the month, Cross Stitch Wishes, and the Artiste cartridge.



I stamped the background using the stamp set because I did not have any patterned paper that really coordinated. I think it turned out great though!
For the sparkly flourishes, I colored them with the lagoon marker. Then I covered them in liquid glass and sprinkled on glitter. I gave it about 30 minutes to set.






This week's prize is the Wild Card 2 cartridge!! The winner will be announced on Sunday the 12th.

Love this card. I was wondering if the heart accent was heat embossed. If it was did you do it before adding it to the heart? I also love your layers. Diane
