Morning everyone! I hope that everyone has had a good week. It’s Friday!! Today’s card was inspired by a very good friend of mine, Chantal. She got an early peek at the new Sale-A-Bration Catalog and saw this card. I told her what was used to make it and she placed her order. I took it over to her the other night and we sat down and made one. I didn’t really like the card when I saw it in the catalog. After we made it though I decided that I really do like it. It’s a very simple but really nice card. I liked it so much that a made a mini 3 x 3 version of it too. The card uses the Easy Events Stamp Set. It’s a great set to have as it comes with eight stamps for various occasions. I stamped it on to Very Vanilla Card Stock in Chocolate Chip Ink. I then stamped the image again on another piece of card stock. I used a Q-tip and some Lucky Limeade Ink to color in the top of the tree and the grass. Stampin’ Up!’s Paper Snips work great for detailed cutting and after I cut out the top of the tree it was place on the main image with some Stampin’ Dimensionals. The hearts were markered on the stamp and stamped randomly on the card. They were then colored in and the marker was also used to draw over the word love. A small strip of Real Red Card Stock was adhered to the bottom for a finishing touch. Chantal is going to make them to send out for her Valentine’s Cards. She has become quite the little crafter! Thanks for stopping by and have a great Friday!
