Hi, peeps..

happy crafting

More the reds, whites, pinks..more the love...
And here we have Ruchi with her fabulous tri shutter card...over to her..
 I made double tri shutter card.
I used white CS for base, Patterned papers, Iron motif heart shape and scallop square dies, gold embossing powder, diamond dust, pearls all from kraftzone.

And lastly its me..Lekha..
Thought of doing little fusion with my card...And the two card folds I used here are my favourite ones..Hope you like the fusion :) 
For the basic card I chose Double slider card and for the topper I made this Recessed window panel..
For the card I have used Fabriano card stock, Punched heart lace, My Favourite Memory Damask stencil, Barn Door Distress ink, Ink Blending tool and A Birdie Told Me stamp set from Lawn Fawn...
Stencil and the stamp set is from Kraftzone store.
For the card topper I used pattern paper from DCWV, used the damask stencil with distress ink..And heat embossed with Silver EP from Rangers, the heart die cut(Petra's Heart Creatables Dies from Marianne Design). The recessed window houses the stamp from the Lawn Fawn stamp set. 

Hope you get inspired by our cards...Looking forward to some lovely creations from your end...
Happy Valentine's !!
