Create with Connie and Mary Sketch Challenge CCMC441: Sealed with Love

Good morning!  I'm still in the Valentine mood (forgive me but I love this time of year and letting others know how much you care about them so I tend to go a little overboard).  Today I decided to play along with the Create with Connie and Mary sketch challenge for this card with lots of layers and elements that really pop.

I started with Smoky Slate cardstock and then added a piece of Real Red cardstock as the mat for the Basic Black cardfront.  Around these layers I wrapped a piece of Real Red Ribbon from the Sending Love Ribbon Combo pack.  Next I used the coordinating Sending Love Designer Series Paper and cut out two squares of the DSP using the Big Shot and Stitched Shapes Framelits.

Next I used the same framelits and went one size smaller to cut out two more squares using Smoky Slate cardstock.  On one square I used the Sealed with Love stamp set to stamp "hugs and kisses" in Basic Black ink and the other I attached a kiss that I made by stamping Real Red Ink on Whisper White cardstock, but it out with Paper Snips and then attached it to the square with a dimensional.

Next I used the Big Shot and the Swirly Scribbles Framelits to cut the circle design out of Silver Glimmer Paper (I trimmed the little tags of the shape that made it look a little more floral) and then stamped the center heart using Real Red ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out with the Sweet and Sassy Framelits and attached it with a dimensional as well (I told you this card had lots of layers).

The final touch was to add a greeting and for this I used the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set and after stamping in Basic Black ink on Real Red cardstock I punched it out with the Classic Label Punch and again used dimensionals to attach it to the cardfront.  The final touch was to add some rhinestones around the cardfront for a little extra bling.

There are so many fun little touches on this card, and I really do love how using the Stitched Shapes framelits really adds extra detail that punches the card up a notch.  This card sketch would also be a great way to use of some paper scraps you may have lying around that you don't want to get rid of.
