Judy’s Tufted Window Wedding Card

Judy Newsome made this lovely window card for our Candy Hearts card swap last month. The theme was wedding/anniversary. She used the Piece of Cake stamp set for the sentiment and for inside the window. The background texture comes from the Tufted Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder, and it’s highlighted by some Pearl Basic Jewels. You can see how she made it and what she used below.

Hey Love I’m Ape Over You Valentine by Judy Newsome

This is the third day I’ve shared a card made by one of my Candy Hearts team members for our January team meeting swap. Judy Newsome of Lafayette, GA, used the Hey Love stamp set with the Dot to Dot embossing folder and a couple of punches to create this fun Valentine. And it has a pun! And you know how I love puns! Look at the cute little gorilla and the sentiment “I’m ape over you.” And the embossed dots in the background add even more whimsy. This card would be perfect for a child, but could also be given to any fun loving adult.
