Sending my Love Card

Welcome and thanks for joining me today! I have to admit that this card is out of my comfort zone ........I coloured! Better yet, I stayed inside the lines!

My inspiration for this card comes from last weeks challenge card entries! There were so many wonderful and creative entries. I encourage everyone to take part in Cheery Lynn weekly themed challenge.

To create this card, I cut the base of the card from white cardstock, smaller than the largest Horizon Square Boutique Stacker Frame. The large Horizon Square Boutique Stacker Frame die cut is centered on top of the card base. The card base will not be visible threw the delicate scalloped detail on the edges. I then cut a piece of cardstock and pattern paper - layered each on to the base.

I then layered the coloured image which was cut with a circle die from the Circle Classic - Silver Stackers. I cut the Daphne Doily down so that the scalloped edges is only showing. These are then layered upon a cardstock circle and the Kiwi Spirit Doily in white.

I created a small open rose and a rose bud with greenery. Used the smallest die from the Horizon Fishtail Banners set to cut out my embossed sentiment.

I used the Steampunk Cornerand altered them a bit! I cut the center/middle section out and replaced it with the Anastasia Border which matched the Kiwi Spirit Doily perfectly. I pop-dotted them to the top left and right corners.

To finish my card off, I added a few pearls and a little shimmer here and there!

This card must be a bit different than my 'normal' style because two of my close friends/fellow crafters saw it in my Studio on Tuesday and asked who gave it to me!!

Dies Used:

Circle Classic - Silver Stackers - L-4

Horizon Square Boutique Stacker Frames - DL253
