Hello and Happy New Year!
It’s been a busy Christmas break and I’m slowly getting back to some cardmaking here and there. It’s my turn to showcase a Valentine’s Day card during the 1st week of Penny Black’s Sending Hugs Challenge.
So here’s my card to close out the first week!
I really love the image of Mimi & Mylo from Jumbo Love (30-209). My favorite aspect of the image – if I must go into detail – her hand on his chest and his arm around her. It’s just too cute. I stamped and embossed the image and colored with Intense Watercolor Pencils as well as StampinUp watercolor crayons I’ve had for awhile. I fussy the image and set it aside. I used Arcrylic paper (because I liked the texture) as my card panel. A semicircle was die cut on the side of the paper. I wrapped twine on the top and bottom portion of the circle and panel and then adhered a bow. I set that aside and added patterned paper to the card base. With dimensional foam, I adhered the panel on top of the patterned paper. I then added the stamped image inside the circle. To create balance to the card, I fussy cut a few more hearts and added them in and outside the circle.
We’ve got another week to go to enter the challenge. Hope you stick around and join in the fun!
