Love is in the air

Can you feel it? No? Not yet? Well, stick around, 'cuz we've got lots of love here! This is the last class project from this week and of course it has hearts on it. What else are you gonna do this time of year?! Does it look sort of familiar? If you've been following along with me, you'll notice the similarities this card has to some of my swaps for Leadership last week. I had made this card first and then shrunk it down and made a few changes for swapping. (I just love those little cards!) Here you go with the full-size version...

Stamps: Eight Great Greetings, and Teeny Tiny Wishes
Cardstock: Melon Mambo and Whisper White cardstock with Razzleberry Lemonaid Designer Series Paper
Ink: Melon Mambo Classic and White Craft ink pads
Accessories: Scallop Border Punch, Full Heart Punch, Slit Punch, Sponge Daubers, Melon Mambo Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon, Eggcellent Egg Kit (self-stick rhinestone), and Dimensionals

Did you notice the edges of the sentiment piece? That is done with the Scallop Border Punch too. Cool idea, huh! Perfect accent to match the border on the DSP. And what do you do with the leftover strip of paper when you use the border punches? Why I'm so glad you asked! You can add it as an accent somewhere else on your card, like on an edge or even inside your card. Without that tiny strip of DSP on the right edge of the card, this card looked so blah. :-( But it perked right up with the addition. Isn't it funny how just a tiny addition like that makes all the difference in the world! They say it's the little things that count; and in this case, they are certainly right!

Hope you liked today's card idea. It's so pretty I wish you could all see it up close and personal! The class ladies all seemed to like it. In fact at Anita's workshop tonight, two of the ladies were discussing which cardstock colors to buy to recreate this very card. Hope you'll think about making this card too! Thanks for stopping by...

Happy stamping,
