With Love, From Me to You

Hi everyone! Where is the week going? There is not enough time in the day. I finally ordered from the new SU! catalog. I got my order on Monday. I had to have the Medallion stamp.

This card is for Kristina's Finally Friday challenge:

Create a card using patterned paper that was originally not intended for the topic of your card.

I used paper and chipboard from the SU! Country Living Holiday Collection Stampin' Kit to create this love-themed card.

I made my own heart chipboard by punching the heart out 5 times from kraft cardstock and gluing all the layers together.

I've had 1 bottle of Liquid Pearls for years...I don't think I've ever used it. After see this card by Kristina, I had to try something similar.


Thanks for stopping by and have a good one!

Card Ingredients
Stamps: Medallion (SU!), sentiment (Feeling Groovy by Verve Stamps)
Paper: Kraft, Country Living Holiday Collection Stampin' Kit (SU!)
Ink: VersaMark, Riding Hood Red
Tools: 3 heart punch (SU!)
Other: Baby Blue Perfect Pearls, Tombo Mono-multi

Love your take on this, Anthonette. The striped frame and heart really pop with the kraft background. And like many others, I just love that medallion stamp. You used it beautifully, as always!
