"Come Live With Me" Anniversary Card

Hooray!  I finally got a new card made...summer is seriously messing with my crafting time!  This easy little square card was created because I had been thinking of the Poem by Christopher Marlowe..you know, it starts "Come live with me and be my love"...anyway I have always loved the first two lines and decided it would be great on an Anniversary card...so, here it is:



I had just bought myself a Cuttlebug for embossing (love it!) and was messing around and decided to use my Damask Decor Cartridge to cut out the paper I had embossed.  I think it gives it a cool look.  Here is the supply list:
  • 4  1/2 inch square card
  • Cardstock by Coredinations and patterned paper by K & Company 
  • red stipe and black stripe baker's twine
  • VersaMagic Ink in Brick Red
  • metal dots from JoLee's
  • Words were done on the computer
That's it , it was pretty simple.  The hardest part of the damask decor cart is always gluing down the image...it is like a piece of lace.  I use a spray adhesive from 3M that is photo safe and it works great.   Thanks for taking time to check in! I always love hearing from you so comment away and If you are not a follower I would love to have you....I am almost to 50 WOW!  Have a great Day! Hugs!

Congratulations Cindy on your new Cuttlebug. You'll have a lot of fun with it. I love your card as always very beautiful.

I know what you mean about summer messing with our crafting. I guess there is more to life than just crafting but I forget this sometimes. Heee,hee,hee.
