Sweetheart Card

2 Jan

Back at it today, using a sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You. I love the simplicity and elegance of Laura’s Sketch 42. Laura challenged the 2S4Y Design Team to use red, black and silver. I liked what they came up with and also just love the colors. So I borrowed the idea. Here is my version:

I know that Valentine’s Day is not far away but I really imagine this as an Anniversary Card. Hope it inspires you in some way.

Quick Instructions:

  • Cut/emboss/sand red color core cardstock from S4-214 Eyelet Borderabilities Petite. Add them to the flower strip.
  • Cut/emboss/stencil the heart die template from the Rose Border Small. Add black ribbon to the back.
  • Stamp sentiment and die cut with S4-200 Flower Bouquet. Accent with glitter pens. Color background with W3 Copic marker and edge with W5.
  • Trim gray textured paper and adhere to card base. Layer card elements on top to finish.

Here is a close up of the center image. The glitter pens seem to shine a bit more here. They are lovely in real life.
