Hello Sweet Friend

 Hi Friends!

Today I am sharing a fun card designed with the new Cupid & Co 6x6 Paper Pad by Echo Park along with stamps and dies from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store!

This is such a cute paper pad- perfect for Valentines Day or other occasions- wedding, anniversary, etc. 

As many of you know that follow my blog, I have a personal goal to create a card for each of the over 800 Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenges and used Sketch #828 for the layout on this card.

I am also participating with the Tic-Tac-Toe #096 Challenge (left column down Heart-Red-Ribbon) along with the Simon Says Wednesday “Layer It Up” Challenge.  

If you have not had time to check out the Stamp Simply blog or the other challenge sites yet, I hope you will do so- wonderful inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Cut a piece of black cardstock to 4 ¼” x 5 ½”, adhere the vertical floral and striped Cupid & Co paper to the panel.

Add a strip of red satin ribbon to cover the edges, wrap the ends of the ribbon behind the panel.

Mount the entire panel onto a white card base.

Using the Tim Holtz Tag Collection Dies, die cut a tag from black cardstock.  Add a piece of the Cupid & Co paper to the tag.  Adhere a piece of white paper lace (die cut with the Tim Holtz Crochet Die) to the bottom of the tag and add a strip of red satin ribbon (again, wrapping the ends behind the tag).

Add the looped satin ribbon to the top of the tag and adhere to the card front using dimensional foam (or chipboard).

For the heart, use the tiny strips of paper that you normally trim off the top of each page in the Echo Park Cupid & Co 6x6 pad

Adhere the trimmed pieces and adhere them to a piece of white cardstock.  Die cut the “quilt” panel with the Farmhouse Pierced Nested Heart Dies.

Die cut another heart (the same size) from black cardstock, cut in half and mount behind the “quilted” heart.

Use an embossing powder tool to de-static a piece of white cardstock, stamp the sentiment from Typewritten Just Checking In using Versafine Onyx Black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.

Once the embossing powder has cooled, die cut with the Fishtail Sentiments Banner Dies, mount onto the quilt heart, and adhere the entire heart to the card front using dimensional foam to finish off the card.

Ink/Mediums: Versafine Onyx Black

Gee whizzies, this is beautiful, Julie! Those papers are stunning (I have been trying to NOT buy any new 6x6 pads lately!!) and they are very tempting for sure! Your sketch is a perfect way to highlight them too! Thanks for playing with our Tic Tac Toe challenge this week! ♥
