Paper Players 180

Posted on

It’s Monday again already?! I did have a nice weekend, Saturday was fun and Sunday was relaxing. I ran some errands in the morning and spent some time crafting and the rest of the time surfing the internet. You can always find something to look at on-line. The ways that you can waste your time are almost limitless! Between Facebook, Pinterest and Movie Trailers you could easily kill a whole day! LOL! Oh, Thank you for all of your birthday wishes for my grandmother yesterday, I will be sure and pass them along to her! ๐Ÿ™‚

Tomorrow is the big day people! Sale-A-Bration starts! Do you have your lists ready?!?! I have a few orders to put in for customers already! Sale-A-Bration is really good this year, so many fun new goodies! Just a reminder that today is also the last day that you can order from the special Valentine’s Whole Lotta Love Promotion. If you wanted any of the stamp sets, bags or monsters better place that order today!

Today is Monday and that means it’s time for this week’s Paper Players challenge. This week the lovely Ann has an interesting sketch for us…

Paper Players #180

A little pocket on the front with a tag! My card starts off with a base of Real Red Card Stock and the background is a piece of paper from the Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Stack. The pocket for my tag is a piece of Crumb Cake that I stamped in Crumb Cake with the Off The Grid Stamp and adhered to the base with Sticky Strip. My greeting is from the Love You More Stamp Set and is stamped in Real Red. I rounded the corners with the 3/16″ Corner Rounder and backed it with a piece of Coastal Cabana. Some Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere it to the pocket. My tag is made with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch, I used the same stamp set for the greeting and stamped it three times in Real Red, Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay. A piece of “Vintage” Real Red 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon fashioned into a bow is adhered to the tag and the tag is slipped into the pocket. Three hearts punched out with the Small Heart Punch from Real Red, Coastal Cabana and Crumb Cake complete the card. I do love the idea of the tag in the pocket, it would also be a great place to slip a gift card into! Thank you, as always, for stopping by to see my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge. I hope that you all have a mayhem free Monday! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Good Monday Morning! Really enjoy the pull out tag/bookmark on this card! The texture on the crumb cake adds so much for the eyes and works well with the arrows of love! SO, some one else spends TOO much time on Pinterest!! At least I know I’m in good company! Have a wonderful week.

  2. Absolutely darling card, Justin! Love the paper choices and the way you’ve used these awesome stamps! So glad you joined us at The Paper Players!

  4. Love this, Justin! The little messages on your tag are adorable, and as always you have created the perfect little bow. Have a great week! {hugs}

  5. Oh, I loved this layout and thought you did a great job. Then I scrolled down and was totally surprised with the pull-out, it was so bright and cheery. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I would probably have tears if the hubs gave me this Valentine. Absolutely gorgeous and the “Love You More” is something we say to each other all the time. The colors are great, the card is perfect. Just all in all THE Valentine card of the year. Great job Justin.

  7. Very cute! Loved the card Justin, and I’m with Nancy, when I scrolled down and saw the pull-out it was “oh sooo cute” ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a great day today!

  8. Hi Justin! This is such a nice card…love it! The pull out tag just makes the card. You can’t help but smile when you look at this one. As usual, another great creation from you! Hope your week is off to a great start!

  9. I like this card . Adorable pull out but, it`s all in the details of a card for me and I like that background addition from the GG stamp set . A great Valentine !

  10. What a fun interactive card today. I know I would be pulling the tag in and out so much just to see the sentiment. Just love the Fresh Prints Stack colors!

  11. I love your card. What a surprise pulling the tag out. My sister-in-law’s family has been saying “Love you more” for as long as I have known them, so you just gave me the perfect card to send her. Thanks! (I thought today was Tuesday! I thought the weekend went way too fast also!) Enjoy your work week…Nancy B

  12. What a wonderful card for Valentine’s Day, Justin! I love what you did with the sketch. The ribbon on the pull-out is perfect. Thanks for playing with The Paper Players!
