Love is in the air! Valentine's Day is just around the corner! I love making cards for all occasions so I can remind friends and family how much they mean to me all year long. Valentine's Day is no exception!
Are you playing along with our monthly challenge at Sugar Pea Designs? We provide a new sketch every Wednesday along with samples from the design team featuring Sugar Pea Designs Products. But the prize is drawn monthly. So.. the more you play the better the chance you have to win. To enter you only have to play along with one sketch, but to better your odds play along with all four! The prize is sweet too! A $75 gift certificate from the store... and if you saw the latest release that is sure going to be a welcome surprise because you're going to want them ALL!!! I know I do!!
This is a really fun sketch and as soon as I saw the three circles down the center of the sketch the Heart Journal Card die came to mind. I told you my rule about pattern paper - to break up patterns add some solid card stock between them.. so for this one I added the Heart Border down each side of the center strip. Because some of the hearts in the border are open I filled them in with cutouts of pink card stock.I even cut some extra hearts from gold glitter paper so I could sprinkle them around in lieu of confetti. The fun "Love You Tons" sentiment is from the Tons of Fun stamp set. The set seems mostly birthday themed but if you look closer you'll see the sentiments can be used for lots of occasions!
I originally had the "love" die cut in red, but once I added the gold hearts I thought a little peek of gold from behind the letters would be perfect to pull the different elements of the design together.
