My second attempt came after giving a lot of thought about how I could make that banner work. You see, I take everything quite literally! While the sketch is supposed to be a guideline, I just can't be that loose thinking, lol, and will try to incorporate every element I see.
In the end, I did actually loosen up slightly by not including a circle or a heart. However, the heart did dictate what I did, as this is the card I will give my sweetie for Valentine's day! The Nailed It stamp set was perfect for my guy, who is very handy, and I just love the little Urban Underground embellishments for a little manly bling!
And just look at the depth and texture of the hexagonal embossed background. It adds so much interested to an otherwise plain base card with just a few cranks of the Big Shot handle. Love, love it!
