Isn’t this beautiful! It’s a textured cutting board and is the inspiration piece this week over at Beate’s blog.


Here’s the card I made for it. I love this sentiment. As soon as I saw the set with it from See D’s, I knew I had to have it. It touched my heart as I truly believe that everything that is alive has a soul.


Since there was so much I loved about this piece, I decided to use several elements from it for my card. The split background, the colors, the black silhouettes and those wonderful swirls were all included. For my background swirl panel I used my Cuttlebug’s “Divine Swirl” embossing folder on Barely Banana card stock. With a Stampin’ Spot in Ruby Red Craft, I pounced the “back” side of the embossed paper intentionally going for an uneven color coverage. I then stamped it with the “Sanded” backgrounder and sponged around the edges with Ruby Red Classic ink. The butterfly from “Essence of Love” was stamped in Ruby Red Craft on River Rock card stock. After cutting it out I took a Ruby Red marker and outlined the image.

Stamps: Kitchen Sink “Hearts & Roses”, See D’s “Silhouettes of Nature”, SU!’s “Essence of Love”, “Sanded”, “En Francais”
Paper: Barely Banana, River Rock, Basic Black
Ink: Ruby Red Craft, Classic and Marker, River Rock, Basic Gray, Basic Black, Jet Black Stazon
Accessories: GG Ribbon, Rhinestone Brad “Fire”, Black Brad, Corner Punch, Corner Rounder Punch, Cuttlebug and “Divine Swirls” Embossing Folder
