Can You Case It Color Challenge: Guest Designer

Good morning!  We're looking forward to a beautiful Sunday and a little break from the cold before the next drop happens tomorrow so we'll be taking down our outdoor Christmas lights and getting my long run in to enjoy.  I recently was honored to be contacted by the Can You Case It? challenge blog an was asked to be their guest designer this week for their color challenge this week which was based on a card I shared in November, so exciting!  This is a great group of designers and it's fun to play along with them this week.  As you know I'm all into Valentine's projects right now and there is a fun little set that was released in the main Idea Book back in June but I didn't get it before recently but it's cheeky and perfect for right now, a little humor is always fun.

I started with Crumb Cake for the card base and then added a piece of Pool Party Cardstock that I punched along the edge with the Confetti Hearts Border Punch (this new punch is awesome!!!).  Behind the hearts I added a strip of Gold Glimmer Paper for sparkly little hearts and then tied a piece of Gold Baker's Twine around the cardstock.  Before attaching the cardfront to the cardbase I used the Paper Piercer and the Essentials Paper Piercer Pack to punch a heart shape.

I used the Groovy Love stamp set to stamp two heart shapes, the animal print on Crumb Cake cardstock with Crumb Cake ink and a second with the heart outline with Pool Party ink on Very Vanilla cardstock.  Both hearts were punched out with the Sweetheart Punch.  The greeting ("You Make my Heart go Boom Boom" I love it!!!!) is from the same stamp set and is heat embossed with the Heat Tool and Gold Embossing Powder using Versamark Ink.  I used a dimensional to attach the Vanilla heart to the cardfront.

I have to admit this card turned out so pretty and whimsical at the same time and I know my sweetie will enjoy it!  You should definitely go check out the other cards the design team created using the same colors and then play along, you'll really enjoy it!
