In yesterday's post I shared a masculine love card featuring this fabulous heart background from Hero Arts, and today I have a feminine card with the same stamp.
I actually made this card for myself, haha! ;-) Like I mentioned yesterday, my boyfriend and I just had our 5 year anniversary, and my boyfriend asked me to make a card that he could give to me. He doesn't want to buy a card, because he says that no store-bought card will ever be as nice as the cards I make myself. Isn’t he sweet? :-)
For this card I was inspired by a card that Laura Sterckx made during Day 2 of Stretch Your Stamps 2 (I'm absolutely loving this class!!). I used the same design and the same colors of Distress Ink for my ombre background as she did.
Laura used a die cut for her sentiment, but since I don't have a die cut machine, I used a punch again. I was so happy to discover that this cute sentiment from Simon Says Stamp fits perfectly within the punched shape.
To attach the vellum piece, I used some clear dimensional adhesive from Kool Tak. The adhesive was showing through the vellum a little, but I positioned the tiny squares just behind the letters so you hardly notice them.
If you have any questions about this card, let me know in the comments!
Are you taking the Stretch Your Stamps 2 class?
