I decided to use the Splitcoaststampers’ SC568 Sketch Challenge along with the Just Add Ink JAI294 "Add Something New" Blog Hop (both of these digital images are new to me :-)) for inspiration.
I hope you will find the time to check out both of these challenge sites as well as the SNSS Blog Post :-).
To create this card:
Insert the digital images for Cocoa’s Heart along with the sentiment from the Valentine’s Day Greeting set ( I cropped and re-sized the sentiment).
Print the images out onto a piece of 8 1/2" x 11" Whisper White cardstock and color the Cocoa’s Heart image using Spectrum Noir™ Alcohol Markers along with a Faber-Castell® Pitt Penn marker to add the checked border.
Fussy-cut out the heart, mount onto white cardstock and fussy-cut around the heart to create a white border.
Emboss a piece of Smoky Slate cardstock with the Happy Hearts Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and layer onto Basic Black cardstock.
Add the embossed panel to the Whisper White card base, layer the black and white polka dot background and add the Cocoa's Heart and Valentine's Day Greeting sentiment using Stampin' Dimensionals®.
Use the Owl Builder Punch to punch out two little hearts from Melon Mambo cardstock, layer onto on
|Another view trying to show the shimmer :-)|
This was a fun card for me to create- I hope you will try some of the digital images for yourself- if you have any questions, please feel free to ask in the comment area :-)
