WOYWW 139

Although not entirely as I pictured them in my head I got the anniversary cards for this year finished ... 18 all the same so was able to get a little production line going and they didn't take too long at all.  
The longest time was spent "experimenting" to get the look I wanted and after playing around with distress inks trying to get the grungy look I love I decided to go for the crisp & clean look instead.  
I also decided against a red mat for any of the layers as I wanted the full impact of the red heart and glossy-accents has really made that heart stand out!  Was going to mount them onto a white opening card but I am favouring "post-card" style cards this year so what you see is what you get ... you just turn it over for the greeting.
Not sure what, if anything, I will be working on today yet ... once I figure it out you will be the first to know!!!!!  Happy WOYWW'ing everyone!

  2. Hi there. Great to have a peek into your crafty world this morning thanks to the wonders of WOYWW! I think your card is lovely and the heart really pops out. I love glossy accents for this. I hope the rest of your week goes well too.

  3. A very striking card, Debbie, and I love that heart. I have to admit that I favour the crisp clean look of cards anyway, so that would suit me well. Hope the Vagabond story settles down and it behaves itself. xx Maggie #112

  11. That's a really love card, the stamp looks like a tattoo with the red heart in the middle. I like to sprinkle a tiny amount of sparkly glitter into wet glossy accents too for a different effect.

  20. great card, as you say clean and simple but it still has a grungy feel to it (my handyman hates me talking of grunge . . . he doesn't 'get' it )
