Hi all and welcome back to the Card A Day Blog followers that followed over from the blog. Well the 1st card of the New Year, I am glad to be sharing it with the Card A Day Blog.
It's Valentines Day week at the blog, so this was perfect timing to create a card for my husband.
The card came from a sketch that is the challenge this week at Mojo Monday-The Blog it just seem like a great sketch to do a card with, I think I did a fair job getting close to the sketch:
I made this in mind for my husband to give to him on Valentines Day. After the fantastic Christmas that I had with him the love is overflowing at the moment and what a great time to do a card with all those feelings bubbling up.
What made this such a fun and interesting card to do was the black background paper that I wanted to use. This began as a 12 X 12 piece of scrapbook paper and I wanted the corner of it with all the writing and to have that word Love emphasized from the paper so I did a fussy cut. Are you familiar with a fussy cut?
So here is the recipe for the card:
Cardstock: Red card base-The Paper Co.
Purple cardstock was from a scrap laying on the desk and it just fit with the card
Patterned paper: Black-ATD Occasions & Celebrations pad, Red-I think from DCWV Christmas pack
Stamps: Above Rubies pack received free with a DVD purchase
Ink:SU Basic Black
Punches: SU punch corner small ticket
Purple heart came from a Studio112 pack that I received in a swap
Brad: The red heart Creative Imaginations pack poppedup with (2) 1/8" Glue dots (eksuccess)
Stickles: Xmas Red
Adhesive: ATG & Scotch Scrapbooker's glue, Kokuyo Tape N Roller repositionable for the heart while putting the other elements together before permanently apply it
I have added this card to the following challenges:
Of course MojoMonday it was their sketch used
Give fussy cutting a try if you haven't done it before it is alot of fun to do, till next time....
