I was given the "Sending My Love" Digital Stamp from DeeDee's Digis to work with.

Here is the card I designed for this week's challenge.  

"Sending My Love" Digital Stamp from DeeDee's Digis
Silhouette Cameo Cutting Machine- sentiment
Photoshop- color the image
Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
Recollections Cardstock
Miscellaneous red ribbon
Gelly Pen
Pop Dots
  1. Color the digi stamp (for this project, the image was colored using the Photoshop program).
  2. Create the sentiment using the Silhouette Cameo cutting machine and cenger it under the digi stamp.  Weld the two pieces together.
  3. Create an offset/shadow for the digital stamp (solid red paper) 
  4. Print and cut the image using a cutting machine (for this project, the Silhouette Cameo was used). 
  5. Cut the offset/shadow with your cutting machine.
  6. Create the background paper by tearing one pattern and layering it over the other.  Add this background paper to a premade 4.5 x 5.25 blank card.
  7. Cut a heart and ink the edges.  Emboss with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Embossing Folder and attach the heart to the card.
  8. Attach the ribbon to the upper right corner of the digital stamp.
