Affection Collection

Okay, so this card was my version of Robin Merrimen's card. I switched out some things and made my own version.  The one big thing I wanted to show my card classes this month was the how to heat and "pucker" our awesome tulle you can see how here:  http://songofmyheartstampers.typepad.com/song_of_my_heart_stampers/2012/09/mini-photo-tutorial-quick-ruffled-tulle-trim.html?cid=6a00e554f4a3a48834017c321cd603970b  
Thanks Lyssa!
. After I had succeeded in doing it without having to call the fire department, I needed to figure out a use for it and since I loved Robin's card, I needed to incorporate the two.  So, here is mine. We used the Affection Collection Stamp set (Holiday Mini-today is the LAST DAY to get this stamp set!).  Using a Very Vanilla base and smaller one to stamp on, we stamped the Distressed Polka Dots in Pink Pirouette and then randomly stamped in Crumb Cake the flowery flourishes. We stamped out the No.1 in Early Expresso and cut it out and placed a Cherry Cobbler heart over the exsisting heart using the Owl Punch. We punched out a Large Heart from Sahara Sand cardstock and inked the edges in Soft Suede and then stamped the word Love in Primrose Petals and cut it out, layering it over the heart. We ran a strip of Primose Petals through the Big Shot and Chevron folder and then adhered the puckered tulle behind it and wrapped Early Expresso Baker's Twine around it twice and adhered it all down.  We then spritzed the whole thing in Shimmer paint.
