One of the things I want to do this year is use my dies a lot more often, so here’s one of those cards, only I used the negative space because I wanted to create a one layer card. I placed the Sizzlit brush strokes heart under my card base and eyeballed its position before running it through my Cuttlebug. I stamped and heat embossed the butterflies and stamped ink splotches and arrows for an artsy look. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment.
This card goes to my any occasion stash, although it can very well be a Valentine’s Day card, so it fits a few challenges: One Layer Simplicity #1 – Restocking the Shelves, Less Is More Week 154 – One Layer Cards (Hearts), Twisted Tuesday Challenge #67 – Use Items from 3 or More Companies + Arrows (I used stamps from STAMplorations, embossing powder from Stampendous, and dye inks from Memento + I had stamped arrows), and Addicted to Stamps and More #78 – Holiday. I based the layout of the card on the STAMPlorations sketch #3.
