Papertrey Ink Valentine card for Casology challenge



Hello everyone, and a very warm welcome to new followers, Anne, of Wicked Designs Blog (my talented Teamie at the Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge), and Babyboo, of Babyboo Mini Lab.

I wanted to join in the challenge over at CASOLOGY this week,

The cue card this time is CONTRAST, so I decided to make a plain white card and add a strip of red to provide the contrast.




I used one of the PTI Confetti Garland Border dies but I kept the red aperture shape and cut it out again in white card for the centre. I impressed the white hearts with the canvas impression plate to add some texture,



and I also impressed the focal panel with the other side of the impression plate - love that thing!
The sentiment came from PTI Think Big Favorites 23 and I also used Lil' Inker Designs Stitched Rectangles.

I'd also like to enter this into the Addicted to Stamps and More challenge which is CAS this week.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a good week.

Hugs

    Thank you for the sweet comment on my shabby chic. I don't make many of those type cards but I do love them. An expert,
    I'm not, but maybe practice will help.

  6. This is really beautiful Carol! Love all the subtle texture and the little heart gem is adorable! The Lil' Inker dies are such a great investment for card making-at least thats what I told myself when I bought all the shapes...lol. Thanks for letting me know about the other dies I was asking about and about my "contact me" button on my blog. Somehow it just disappeared but a new one is back on there...thanks!!
