Thanks so much for visiting today. I have a card to share today that I made using something I completely forgot about. You know... when you get something new and you are so incredibly organized that you immediately sort everything and put it away... and then... you are looking for something completely different and... OH! There that is! I completely forgot about it! Ok... that probably makes no since and I am SURE that has never happened to you. Hee! Hee! Well it totally did to me and it was the great chipboard shapes that came with the Art Philosophy Cartridge set from Close to my Heart.
I did my typical half card size. The LOVE banner is from those shapes that came with the cartridge set. I inked the edges with a ruby colored ink and pounced the color lightly on the front. These shapes take color perfectly! I used an Anna Griffin Lace Border stamp and stamped the pattern onto the banner shapes. I used the Cricut and the Botanicals cartridge to cut out LOVE. I looped some beautiful twine from My Craft Spot and tied little bows to the ends. I used 3D adhesive to make it stand from the mat a little bit as well.
The lace trim is from our little excursion with my parents recently. We left that place with three huge bags of trim for less than $20.00!!! SCORE! This is a beautiful crochet trim that has the ribbon already sewn to it. A strip of ATG and Viola! The stamp cut is from Sentimentals and the vintage card is from a K&Company paper stack I found at Michaels last year. The flowers in the vintage card were yellow and I didn't like them with the colors of the card, so I covered them with Flower Soft! I love this stuff!!! I also used some glossy accents on the font work on the banner to make it stand out from the patterned background.
For the inside, I used just the same mats as the front and added a heart I cut and stamped from the Art Philosophy group as well. I was so pleased with the way it turned out. I would love to hear your comments. Thanks so much for visiting today! We sure appreciate it!
