Love!

This week we were given a sketch to follow. I made two different cards, and neither one turned out looking like the sketch itself...however it is sketch inspired.
I sat and played for hours moving things around and trying to just get an idea. I divided it into different sheets of paper and so on. I finally decided that I was going to go with plain and simple...a good one for me right now. I also figured that we have Valentines coming up I would get a head start on getting a few of those cards made.
I chose a neutral grey background for the card. I divided the card using red ribbon that says I love you on it. The ribbon had a shiny surface to it that didn't go with style of card so I used my distress ink and dulled it out. I used the lacy labels cartridge to cut out the squares, love, and heart for the focal point of the card. The love section was cut at 2 in, and the heart and square was cut at 3in. I added the flower with a self stick gem, stamped the x's and o's. I outlined the LOVE with a gray marker to help it stand up off of the paper a bit....arranged and attached them and there is my card. *ingredients* DCWV neutral textured gray cardstock, old world stack, and a burgandy cricut cartridge...lacy labels self stick gems in red studio g flowers ribbon inks If you haven't checked out the Blitsy site, you are missing some great crafting deals!
