For Nana

Dear Ones~
Well, I have lost count of how many posts I have done today. But I will tell you that I appreciate you, the reader, and I love showing you what I have created.
This card has been made for a very special lady who is the mom of one of my best friends.  I couldn't resist making a Valentine for her. Everyone who knows and loves her calls her Nana.

 Foiling is all the rage lately, and I couldn't resist using that technique on this card. Himself gifted me with a laser printer for Christmas, and it has opened a whole new world of foiling for me. I have a very inexpensive laminator, but it works perfectly for foiling. Here I computer generated the word "Nana", printed it off with my laser printer, and ran it through the laminator. VOILA!!! I also used a product called irRESISTible Pico Embellisher. It's a liquid with a needle nossle and it acts a little like Enamel Accents only a little thinner. I outlined the flowers and leaves with gold. I like how it came out. Then I used Enamel Accents in the middle of the flowers.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Dusty rose and White Card Stock
PTI Friendly Flowers Stamp Set
HOTP Love and 5 Hearts Die
GKD Dusty Rose, Sweet Mango, Jelly Bean Green
and Fresh Asparagus Inks
Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder
Stash Sequins and Glossy Accents 
Black Enamel Accents

This will be entered in:
