Love You Always
Here we are with a fresh new year and the first Papertrey Ink blog hop for 2015! The challenge was to use hearts and then write a heartfelt message inside for a loved one. I was thinking of my husband when I made this card. Valentine's Day is coming up!
I cut the white scalloped heart and red heart using the Limitless Layers: 2-1/4" Hearts dies. On the red heart, I embossed the word "love" from Wet Paint in white. I immediately thought of this set when I saw the blog hop inspiration picture. I love the bold, handwritten words in that stamp series! I also stamped "you always" from the same set on a white strip cut with a Building Blocks die.
The flower and leaves are from the Ruby Reprise stamp set by Papertrey Ink, and were cut using the Ruby Rose dies. I used Pure Poppy and Simply Chartreuse ink. I added a tiny rhinestone in the center for a touch of bling.
I embossed the black panel using the Hugs & Kisses embossing folder by Cuttlebug. I really like how it looks in black! I adhered everything to a white card base. I love how the red and white heart really pops. I may go ahead and put this in my husband's suitcase on his next trip rather than wait till next month. :)
