For today's card, I used this week's sketch from Mojo Monday, for the layout. I actually really like this layout, it is officially going into the "favorites file"...which is really just a little notebook where I attempt to recreate the sketch, in my own drawings (which some would say resemble hieroglyphics). It's just as awesome as it sounds...well, only if you can read hieroglyphics. ;)
I also created this card, using the theme from The Paper Players this week: Valentine's Day! (*waving a BIG hello to the fabulous Paper Player gals*) I decided to bust out my all-time favorite (ret.) DSP, Sending Love. Further proof that I am committed to my New Year's goals of using up the supplies in my craft room. :)
When it came time to decide on the main image, I just kept stamping and punching until I was content with the result. It's a little "sentiment sandwich" using the heat-embossed sentiment from the With All My Heart set and fancy oval frame from the (retired, SAB) Vintage Labels set. Neither have been inked up since they arrived in my home. :) I have listed all of the items used to create the card at the end of the post, if you have questions about what I used. The little hearts were also embossed with Iridescent Ice for some sparkly fun.
To round it out, here is the decorated inside of the card, ready to share some Valentine's Day love:
SU! Supply List:
Stamps: With All My Heart (front sentiment), Vintage Labels (retired SAB set, on front oval punch) and A Happy Heart (inside sentiment)
