Here is the card…a 5x7 size and I used a pattern out of our ORIGINALS How-To-Book . The pattern name is “Colors & Cubes and can be found on page 63.
When I first saw the Rock the Block promotion – “CARDS” popped into my mind as I looked at the ADORABLE, Exclusive stamp set that comes with this promotion!!
I knew I wanted to stamp “love” in one line, rather than in the block square. I just inked up the “LO” first…stamped. Then inked up “VE” and stamped along side of the “LO”. I LOVE our clear, see through, acrylic stamps!!!
I LOVE the background images in this stamp set too!! I used the screen print on the cardstock squares at the bottom of the card. Of course the flowers, leaves and the HUGE flourish are all VERY useful too! I stamped a bunch of the flowers, cut them out and then had a FUN time deciding what colors I liked best to create the completed flowers.
The products I used in creating this card…
I used Kraft Cardstock (this is becoming a FAVORITE!) for my card base. Then I used the colors, Crème Brulee, Sunset, Olive, Desert Sand & Lagoon.
Yes, I did hand-cut the flourishes…I LOVE our cutting knife and Versa Mat to accomplish this task!!! This is fun to do every once in a while.
For embellishments I used our Antique Copper Designer Brads and the metal assortment of brads. I also used the Olive Mini-Medley ribbon. I LOVE these Mini-Medleys!! They are only $4.95 AND they include such a nice variety of embellishments!!! CLICK HERE to see the wonderful selection of Mini-Medleys that Close To My Heart carries!!!
