I was blown away by the cards the CAS(E) this Sketch Design Team created with the above sketch (you really should have a look!!)
I had an idea evolve when playing with some die-cuts last night. This is the end result:
I lost count of how many heart die-cuts I ended up with after doing this card but I'm well stocked for Valentines Day!!
I actually started by using distress inks on some white CS to create an ombre effect but it turned into a bit of a disaster. So searched thru my 6x6 paper pads and came across an ombre coloured paper. I used a heart die to die-cut hearts from different sections of the paper.
After arranging the hearts over the card, I glued between the hearts where they touched (incredibly fiddly!!!). Unfortunately I then sat on the carpet and cut out millions of tiny strips of foam tape but was able to talk with Max about life in general (he is 8yrs) at the same time. These were attached to the back of the hearts, wherever they wouldn't be seen from the front and pressed on to the card. I stamped the sentiment in black, a sprinkle of sequins and voila!
The heart die is from CAS-ual Fridays. The sentiment from Rosies Studio. The tiny pink sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh and the larger one from Neat and Tangled.
As usual, I've got a few challenges to link this card too. First up is the Inkspirational Challenge # 74 where their theme is:
Next I will join the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge where their theme is 'Have a heart'.
I will also join the Uniko Studio Challenge # 17 where their theme is 'Love and Friendship'. This is my third entry.
And finally, I'm linking to the CASology Challenge Week 130 where their theme is:
I have two friends that I thought of when I made this card, one lives oversea's and the other in a different part of New Zealand. I think about them both every single day and wish we had a chance to talk more often and see each other. Might have to use some of my leftover hearts to make a similar card, so I can send a card to them both. Nothing like getting some love by mail!!!
