Love You





  Hello! This time the Design Team was asked to use shades of gray with a LOVE theme. I found this one a bit on the difficult side for me. So I made two different cards. 
All you have to do is use a Serendipity Stamp or Die  and shades of gray. You do not have to have a love theme……. Lucky you :)


On both cards I heat embossed the Primitive Heart and on the top one I made a window using the Heart Solid Die
Not sure what card I like best.

I can see how it would be hard sticking to grey, but you knocked this one out of the park. Both are stunning, and show off the heart perfectly! Beautiful!

It is hard to pick a favorite. Marybeth these are both gorgeous. I love the embossed one but also the second one is terrific. Great cards!

Eliza Art said...

The beautiful heart, card adorable, I warmly greet

Vickie Z said...

I love them both!! The silver embossing is gorgeous!!

Marjolein said...

Both your cards are stylish and elegant! Your first card is subtle and your second card a bit more bold because of the contrast..... I don't have a favourite, they're both gorgeous!!!
Bye,

Both cards are absolutely beautiful. Not partial to either card as they are both gorgeous.

Lisa said...

I see NO evidence of trouble here Marybeth, these are both beautiful!! They're quite elegant, each in their own way. The first is my favorite though. I love the soft stripes and the cut out ~ pretty!!!

JD/ Jill said...

For someone who said they struggled...it sure doesn't show. Both of these cards are fabulous, and I really like the embossed heart. I find monocromatic cards difficult...I hope I will abe to get a card done for this challenge...because it will be a challenge for sure. Hope you are having a good day.

Bonnie said...

I'm not sure which I like best either! They're both beautiful! Very elegant!

Deepti said...

I'm super impressed you made two cards when it was hard...I would have done the opposite. I think they both turned out wonderful.

Kelly Griglione said...

Wow, a gray love card, you really know how to challenge yourselves! You did well with it though, and even came away with two of them!

~Tammy~ said...

It would have been difficult for me as well, but I can't tell where you would have had one ounce of trouble! Stunning on both!

Greta said...

Personally, I really like the one without the window, but both are elegant, classy & wonderful, Marybeth!
