Love Notes For Leaky Shed Studio featuring Heat Embossed Chipboard

I would like to wish each of you a blessed Christmas. I hope you'll take time to reflect on Christ's love this holiday season. 

Today I'd like to share some details from my Leaky Shed Studio project. It's always fun to send little notes to our loved ones to let them know how much we care, or to congratulate them on a special accomplishment. I've created a set of note card holders just for that purpose. I've cut the holders and coordinating note cards from the Prima Romance collection and decorated them with gorgeous Leaky Shed Studio chipboard.

Love Notes Set

Tips and Techniques
This first note card holder has a steampunk image, so I added one of the LSS crosses from the cross set. I heat embossed with with the wonderfully textured Fran-tage Aged Black Embossing Enamel. Each of these holders was fussy cut from design sheets from this gorgeous Prima paper, then scored and folded. Edges are inked in Walnut Stain Distress Ink. 

For each of these holders I cut out and inked additional sentiments like the Beautiful and Notes sentiments on this one. The Leaky Shed Studio Butterfly was heat embossed with Fran-tage Shabby Pink Embossing Enamel. Inking for this holder is done with Black Soot Distress Ink. 

This chipboard piece is the new Damask design that is an upcoming release. Don't you just adore the intricate detail? It's also heat embossed with Fran-tage Embossing Enamel in Aged Silver. The top part of the chipboard is not glued down so the envelope tab can be tucked underneath. I went back to the Walnut Stain Distress ink for this note holder. 

You may have noticed that I have not included much dimension with flowers and other embellishments so that they will be easy to slip into an envelope and send on their way, but still have so much elegant and gorgeous dimension with the lovely dressed up chipboard.
