Romantic Love

Happy Saturday everyone! It's a cozy rainy day here on the westcoast...perfect for stamping! 

My card today turned out to be one of my absolute favourite things!  It was so easy to make, I used the Textured Tulip Embossing folder...this is at the top of my fave's list and the magnetic heart from the Punch Windows dies that fit into the Movers and Shapers.

I also used the Punch Potpourri Heart stamp, this is a hostess set, and the sentiment on the front is from the I {Love} Love Jumbo Wheel...I have 2, one for wheeling and one I pulled off the wheel and cut up, getting 19 beautiful stamps!  I used Basic Gray ink and the embosslit heart cut in black.

For the base of the card I used a 4 1/4" x 11" base, folded at 5 1/2".  Then on the front piece I folded it again at 2 3/4".  With the magnetic heart in the movers and shapers die, I lined up the middle of the heart with my 2 3/4" fold....carefully unfolded that piece to cover the heart and then lined up my cutting plate just to the fold line.  Run it through your Big Shot and you have the base of the card done!

At this point I folded the 2 3/4" front back so that the heart cut out was showing and carefully lined it up in my Textured Tulip folder and ran it through the Big Shot again.

To finish it, I coloured the flowers and stems with my markers using Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzaz.  I first outlined my flowers with the pen tip of my marker, making it easier to see where I wanted to colour it, then I filled it in with the brush tip. 

The sentiment inside is from Occasional Quotes, a hostess level 3 set.  I added a bow de fourchette (aka fork bow!) to the front, positioning it so that it would be visible from the inside as well as the outside and this was made with Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon.

The last step was to add a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 base to the back of the card to cover the debossed back and to give it a more finished look as well as making it a bit heavier.

I hope you enjoyed this card!  Thanks for stopping by and sharing your time with me!
