Today I’m excited to share another card with you. This post is dedicated to a special friend. She’ll know who she is by the top photo! Love you lady!
I had a lot of fun making this card. I’ve been on a pink heart kick…..not sure why!? But it sure fits in nicely with this week’s Muse challenge! Not as CAS as Michele’s, but the pink hearts and the die cuts remind me a bit of her lovely card.
I used my new mini ink blenders and some new Tim Hotlz Distress Ink for CASology’s (NBUS) to create a pink ombre background paper and then used PTI’s Heart Cover Plate Die to cut out the little pink hearts. I also used the cover plate to make the white layer. I made the pinked frame with some more of the pink ombre background paper cut out with an Avery Elle Pinked ELLE-ments die along with a Spellbinders Rectangle die.
I added a homemade foam heart sticker for MIM’s #197, made with some more of the ombre paper and some foam core board. I cut the hearts out with my Sizzix Framelits Hearts.
The 4 Challenges I’m playing in:
The funny thing is I missed the deadline for the challenge which inspired the layout for my card! Funny?! Honestly I was quite irritated with myself. Anyway……I think I need to get my act together!
Here’s the sketch from CAS(E) this sketch #105:
- Stamps: PTI Painted Poinsettias (thank you sentiment)

P.S. The foam core board came as packing material in a Christmas box from my parents. My father sent me one of his paintings for a Christmas present.
