Well, today, I am sharing a card with you that continues from earlier. Heather over at Houses Built of Cards won the stamp set donated by Kimberly over at My Craft Spot during the release of her Valentine's Stamp Sets. In true fashion, and even though the prize will be shipped directly from Kimberly, we always send a hand made card to congratulate a winner from our blog... so... Heather... we hope you like it!
For this card, I used CTMH AP for the Congrats label and the scallops. For the paper on this card, I actually made it myself with butterfly stamps. The larger butterfly is from an Anna Griffin set and the smaller is from a Stampendous set. I used two colors of purple and a bright green. I then inked everything with the card with the darker purple color. I used craft card stock for the base, lavender for the first mat and then the stamped paper for the main mat. I added some lace and ribbon up the left side. I then cut three rows of scallops for the bottom, inked them and then scored in between each scallop. I then used a marker and rolled the scallops over to add some fluff to it. I then added a bow with My Craft Spot Baker's Twine below the label.
I didn't add the normal ton of embellishments that I usually do, but I was so pleased with the way the paper turned out that I didn't want to detract from it.
I added a simple sentiment mat to the inside so that I would write what I wanted. I was just thrilled with the way this turned out. I am getting totally addicted to stamping my own background paper, which isn't necessarily a good thing because of all of the beautiful patterned papers I have already. Hee! Hee! We sincerely appreciate you sharing some time with us today, hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day and we hope you share your thoughts with us on this card. We also want to say congrats to Heather and can't wait to see what she creates with her new stamps.
