Hi everybody!! Hope you've had a great week and it isn't too long now till you reach the weekend. I'm still in half-holiday/half-work mode as I've gone back to work but the kids don't return to school till the end of January, so after a day slogging over millions of weeds I then go off and swim/hang-out with them till dinner. Gotta love Summer-time!!
I can't believe that we are already half-way thru January so I thought I would share with you a card that could be used for Valentines Day next month or maybe any other day you feel you want to tell someone how much they mean to you:
This was a super-simple card to put together and thought it would look really good mass produced in different colour combo's to send to friends next month!!
I started off by die-cutting the second-largest Bubble Box Fri-die from white card-stock. I then stamped over-top the Heart to Heart Background Stamp with Versamark ink and heat embossing with WOW! Embossing Powder in 'Pastel Glacier Mint'. I didn't want to use a usual 'pink' colour combo for a love card so decided to use this blue and then paint the hearts with Distress Oxide Ink 'Spun Sugar'. I also painted the dot areas with Distress Oxide Ink in 'Tumbled Glass'.
Once this had dried I die-cut the middle of the panel with the Love Ya Fri-die. I worked out where the die-cut area would sit on the card front and blended the same Distress Oxide Ink over this area to create the background. I was then able to pop the panel up on foam tape. For something completely different, instead of adding the die-cut bits to the middle of the letters, I carried on with the 'blue dot effect' that's in the background stamp and used the same coloured blue enamel dots for the spaces.
I hope this has given you some ideas for your card making this weekend and if you are going to do some shopping, don't forget to use my special code to save yourself 15%!!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you back here again soon with some more card ideas!!
