Welcome to the last day of Valentines week on the blog! I'm so proud I was able to get a new post up everyday this week. I'm a little tuckered out but so in love with everything I made! Make sure to click back through all the posts...after reading this one of course. *wink wink*
Let's get started...
So for today's card I was kinda inspired by yesterday's in that I wanted to have an element going off the edge. I also wanted to use the Folded Gift Bag Die Set in another way. I cut a piece of kraft cardstock big enough to cover the center of the die and ran it through my die-cut machine. The die scores the sides so just take the piece to your trimmer and follow those as a guide. And don't forget to run it back through with one of the edges! The scalloped one included in the set would have been cute on this card too.
Next I die-cut three hearts from white cardstock and inked them in Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink. I used the negative piece left over in my MISTI, popped the cut hearts inside, lined up the coordinating stitching stamp from my Love Ya set and stamped all three with the same ink for a tone-on-tone effect. Then I white heat-embossed "Love Ya" on all three.
Now that I had all my elements I could begin assembly! I took a piece of white textured cardstock and sponged on a light layer of Cracked Pistachio. I didn't even re-ink my blending tool. I just used what was already on it. Then I adhered my paper bag in the bottom corner at an angle with some foam tape and trimmed off the excess. I added a few of the hearts with foam tape as well and some just glued flat. I love the dimension that gives. To adhere the tag I strung some red and white twine through the bag holes and tied it in a bow. I popped the whole panel onto a card base and I was done!
This card literally took no time at all and was so fun to make! I was thinking about possibly slipping a gift card into the bag? I think that would be adorable.
Anyways, I hope you have a great weekend! And don't forget to click through all the posts from this past week! Let me know your favorite post in the comments below.
