XOXO

Hi again, Crafty Friends!!
I think it's pretty clear that February is the month of Love. And I'm back again with Fleurette Bloom Stamps... whom has just asked me to be a part of their Design Team!!! Eeeeeek!! How cool is that??!!

I don't know about you but hearing great news like that always make me feel loved! And I've been in a very lovey-dovey type of mood lately... lots of warm fuzzies!


And what says love better than red roses...I think roses are very romantic, by the way!

 So, I made this simple, elegant, and "tres romantique" card using...


Other Supplies Used
Clean Color Real Brush 60ct (Kuretake/ Zig)
Momento Tuxedo Black Ink (Imagine Crafts/ Tsukineko)
 Mixed Media Paper (Strathmore)
Hello Darlin Stack (DCWV Inc.)
Chalk Cardstock (DCWV Inc.)
Mega Runner (Xyron)
Stitched Circle Dies (Pink and Main)
Whimsy Embossing Folders (We R Memory Keepers)
Moxie Font Dies (Quickutz/ Lifestyle Crafts)
Fishtail Flag STAX (My Favorite Things)
White Gel Pen (Sakura)
Fabric Tac
Heart Cabochon 


I started by stamping my image with Momento Tuxedo Black ink, a total of three times. 
Next, I colored them using Kuretake's Clean Color Real Brush Pens and I added highlights using a white gel pen.

I cut out two of the images by hand, and the third I die cut using a stitched circle die. Then embossed the die cut with an embossing folder.

I added foam adhesive to the back of the flowers and layered them onto each other for more dimension and removed one of the flowers for the very top layer.

I used this light green paper from the Hello Darlin Stack by DCWV and created a A7 (5"x 7" folded) sized card base.

Then die cut printed text paper from the same stack using a stitched rectangle die. You can hardly see it but the print has lots of inspirational sayings and phrases.

I used my Xyron Mega Runner to attach my rectangle to the front of my card base.

I used the same circle die from earlier and traced around the outside diameter of the die as a template. Then hand cut out the traced shape and layered it under my paper pieced roses.

I added foam tape under the circle for more dimension then adhered it to my card front.

I die cut a pennant and the letters XOXO and adhered the little flag to the card, slightly tucking it behind the circle.

Lastly, I added a heart shaped cabochon using a clear quick dry adhesive.


You can really see all the added dimension with all the different layers (above picture).

Finished Card

I really hope you enjoyed my project for today and that it filled you with 
a bit of love, a little romance, or even some heartfelt inspiration.

XOXO,
Mitsy
