Love Language Congratulations


I've had a rare day off today and as well as doing some baking, I also had some crafty time and was able to play around with a few challenges. I combined the Mojo Monday sketch with the colours from PPA, which also fit perfectly with the current Card Concept challenge - to use monochromatic pinks...

I used some more new goodies from the Spring/Summer catty to make a card that could be used for a wedding or engagement...

 I used the sweet Language of Love set for the hearts - the larger one was embossed on Rose Red card with silver EP and punched out with the matching heart punch and the smaller ones stamped on Blushing Bride with Rose Red ink and punched out with the small heart punch. The greeting was stamped on Very Vanilla with Basic Grey and die-cut with one of the Word Bubble framelits (these are so versatile!). The layers behind are: vellum cardstock, punched in each corner using the Envelope Punch Board; a banner cut from Blushing Bride card using the new Banners framelits and stamped with the Dictionary background stamp; and a piece of Basic Grey core'dinations card embossed with the mosaic embossing folder and lightly sanded. The Naturals Ivory panel behind was pierced around the edges using my piecing tool, template and mat. I added a little arrow cut from Silver Glimmer paper (cut in half) using one of the dies from the Thinlits card collections (love how this turned out!)

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Language of Love, Love & Laughter, Dictionary
Ink: Versamark, Blushing Bride, Rose Red, Basic Grey
Paper: Blushing Bride, Rose Red, Basic Grey core'dinations card, Naturals Ivory, Very Vanilla, vellum, Silver Glimmer paper
Tools: Envelope Punch Board, Word Bubble framelits, Thinlit card dies (label), Full heart punch, Small heart punch

I think this one falls under the 'clean and layered' category... although it may be leaning towards 'freestyle collage' a bit as well... maybe..?

Thanks for stopping by...
