Good evening friends! So we were reminded this weekend that it's still winter and got a good dose of cold, wind, and even a little snow, which made it a great weekend to hang out at home and relax with the family. We also put the finishing touches on all the valentine gifts for classmates and family for the upcoming holiday so it was only fitting that my card for this weeks Stamping 411 challenge be a valentine. I've been struggling to come up with card for my husband, that wasn't "girly" and decided that this sketch, with the P.S. I Love You stamp set would be perfect.
I started with a Real Red cardbase and took a piece of Whisper White cardstock and ran it through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder for the background. I stamped three images that were punched out with the 1 1/4" square punch and then punched out three squares with Going Grey cardstock with the 1 3/8" square punch. The greeting in the bottom left is also from the same stamp set and was punched out with the Modern Label punch and popped up with dimensionals. I also added pearls as a final touch. The accent in the top left was made with a piece of Basic Black cardstock punched with the Decorative Label punch and folded in half around the edge. I used a Real Red button from the Brights Button pack and a bow was tied with a piece of Cherry Cobbler bakers twine.
So what do you think? This sketch was so fun and versatile. I love how the card turned out and think Chris will like it as well. Hope you have a good week and a happy valentine's day!
