Here's To Love


I'm on the Art Impressions blog today with a card idea that can help to stretch your stamps. Today's card features the stamp set Love and Chocolate and technically it is in the Valentine's area of the AI shop! BUT you don;t have to use this for only Valentine's day card!! The set it self dosen;t mention valentine's and the sentiment that does come with the image is great for any kind of day that you want to express your love, you know, like anniversary, just because, world chocolate day etc!!!

I started by stamped the Love and Chocolate image on some water color paper and then used my Distress Markers to color it in. Next i did a little fussy cutting (don't forget to run black marker around the edges).

Next i die cut a heart from red card stock and cut a strip of Kraft card stock. I added the Kraft, then the heart, trimming off a bit of the heart that went over the edge. The heart die i used by Little B comes with a few extra pieces so can add some faux stitching around the heart die cut, this adds some nice interest and texture to the card!!

Then i just added the colored image with foam tape and then stamped the sentiment in the top right corner! Easy Peasy, especially helpful if your in a time crunch, like when you forget an anniversary!!! 

Thanks for stopping by!!

  1. Perfect to pair the heart with the image, reminds me of the box. And I love obscene amounts of chocolate!
