Another week has flown by which means its time for another challenge at Addicted to Stamps. The theme for this weeks challenge is:
Our sponsor for this challenge is Stitchy Bears Digital Stamp Outlet and they are offering a prize of 3 images up to the value of $10 for the winner. How fabulous is that!!!!
When I think holiday cards, my mind usually goes straight to Christmas but I was playing around with one of my dies and realised I could get a jump-start on Valentines for next year:
I started with a kraft card base and cut a panel of white CS to fit the middle of the card. I then die-cut the heart 4x with red cardstock. The die is from CAS-ual Fridays and cuts 5 different sizes of hearts at one time. I layered the larger hearts so they all met in the middle and then added the smaller ones on the inside. After die-cutting a small circle from vellum, I heat embossed the sentiment (from Simon Says Stamps 'Only have eyes for you') in white. I put double-sided tape in small strips behind the wording so you couldn't see it. The panel was then adhered to the card front. Just realised I didn't use any foam tape.....wow!!
Will link to the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge # 140 where their theme is to use white, tan and one bright colour. Hopefully my kraft CS will pass as tan.....
You have one week to link your entries for the Addicted to Stamps challenge and I can't wait to see what wonderful 'Holiday' cards you come up with. And of course the rest of the Design Team have created some amazing cards on the blog to help inspire you. See you in the Gallery!
