Love you bunches
For this challenge I started with brown card stock and I cut it in half lengthwise to make a tall card then on a piece of light brown paper I took my happy valentine stamp and stamp it all over on the paper with a brown ink kind of randomly and not all at the same depth of color, meaning that I let my stamp run dry before I enter it again. Then I cut a piece of that to fit just inside of the brown paper that I started with. Then I took two different sized hearts and my Zacto knife and I cut the larger heart out of the lighter paper that I had stamped on., And a little smaller heart out of the dk brown cardstock. On the inside of the card I layered a piece of cream colored paper and stamped my sentiment "love you bunches" on that so it was visible from the front of the card. I finished my card off with two little felt hearts, a brown button and some cream colored store string. I staggered the hearts together laid the brown button on top and pulled the store strength through all layers creating a bow in the front. This is a card technique that I have not used before so I really need some practice using my zacto knife!!! But I am happy with the end results.
