SC 023/12....

Our challenge over at Sunny Challenges & Creations this week is to create a card, scrapbook page, 3-D Item, etc with a "Love" or "Valentine" Theme.  Be sure to head over to see what both Kris & Shirley  - who is our Guest Designer fo rthe next couple of weeks, while Gwen takes a little time off.

It seems like forever since I created a card as I have been enjoying my scrapbooking.  I hope you have too!

This proved more difficult than I thought it would for me, but I think I got there in the end.  I elected to go with non-traditional colours, although in the end I did throw a bit of red (Riding Hood Red) into the card.  I wanted to create a card which would maybe suit a male without being too "pretty"!

Measurements -
Base Card - Early Expresso Cardstock - 8 1/4" x 4 1/8" or 21cm x 10.5cm  Scored in middle & folded in half
Layer 1 - Vanilla Vanilla Cardstock - 5 5/8" x 4" or 14cm x 10cm
Layer 2 - Early Expresso Cardstock -  4" x 3 1/2" or 10cm x 9cm
Layer 3 - Very Vanilla Cardstock - 3 7/8" x 3 3/8"

I layered my piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock onto my Base Card - Early Expresso, using Snail Adhesive.

I run the smaller piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock through the Bigshot using Embossing Folder - Perfect Polka Dots & adhered to the piece of Early Expresso Cardstock.

I stamped 2 images onto a scrap piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock using Riding Hood Red, adhered one to the embossed piece with Multipurpose Glue, while the top heart was "popped" with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I tied a piece of Ribbon across the bottom of the 2 pieces prior to adhering to the Base Card with Snail Adhesive.

I stamped my sentiment direct onto the Base Card with Riding Hood Ink.

Supplies -
Stamp Set - I {Heart} Hearts, Well Scripted
Ink - Riding Hood Red
Cardstock - Early Expresso, Very Vanilla
Ribbon - 3/8" Taffeta - Riding Hood Red
Embossing Folder - Perfect Polka Dots

Until next time, Enjoy!
