Hello to another wonderful Thursday! Here at the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge, we are using the colors Melon Mambo, Calypso Coral, and Rich Razzleberry.
Now I know some of you will just swoon over these colors, but they are not my cup of tea. I don't really like pinks and oranges. However, I do feel like I came up with a very pretty card for this challenge.
I hope you like it. The star of this card is the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper. One piece had the colors from our challenge so I chose to use that one.
The card begins with a base of Rich Razzleberry measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.
Of course there has to be a little shimmer to the card. Use a 3 5/8 x 4 7/8 piece of the Gold Foil Sheets. Before adhering to anything cut the YOU and the AMAZING from the center of the piece of gold. It saves paper and it will be covered up so one one will see.
The Melon Mambo layer measures 3 1/2 x 4 3/4. The designer paper is cut at 3 3/8 x 4 5/8. That's a lot of layers, but it is so pretty!
The large heart is stamped on Rich Razzleberry with Versamark. The stamps for this card are from the Sure Do Love You stamp set. Add Gold Emboss Powder and heat with the Heat Tool. Cut with the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies. Add some of the Gold Metallic Thread behind the heart. I attached the heart with glue dots. It's easy to get the metallic thread down that way. The leaves and smaller heart are stamped and cut using the Sure Do Love You Bundle.
The Sale-a-Bration Thinlits set Celebrate You were used for the words. You can pick these framelits for free with a $100 purchase during Sale-a-Bration. They also coordinate wit the Amazing You stamp set. You can pick this stamp set with a $50 purchase. The "are simply" were stamped in Rich Razzleberry and cut apart and added to the card.
Here's the inside of the card. These are bold colors. I stamped them off 2 times before stamping them on the card stock. The words, from Sure Do Love You, are stamped in Rich Razzleberry without stamping off.
I wasn't sure about ordering another Valentine bundle, but I have used it so much! I'm so glad I did.
