Paper craft project no. 116: I love you

2013-12-30 CAS I love you
Hello! It’s a brand new week and here in the US, we are celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr. Day so we get an extra day off :-) Here’s an A2 card with a Valentine’s Day theme. To create this card, I first stamped my retro border across my card. On a scrap piece of watercolor paper, I layer stamped two images (the text and heart) from the PATCHWORK FRENZY: Graphic Squares set. I punched them out with my square punch then mounted them onto my card base using foam dots. I then stamped some stitching and finished by stamping the sentiment. Took me about 10 minutes to create this card.

I based my card’s design on the STAMPlorations Sketch #4. Please check out the awesome projects made by the rest of the STAMPlorations design team. We have a new design team member joining us, as well as our first guest designer! We’d love to have you enter your projects there! We welcome all styles and you can create projects using supplies from any company. Our sketch challenges are sponsored by All About Scrapping.
