Love and Adore
It is time for a new two-week challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow and we are calling it LOVE AND ADORE. This time we want to see vintage or shabby chic cards or other paper-crafted projects that depict love and this could be for Valentine's Day if you wish or it could be something for an anniversary or wedding.
From the bottom up, here are the details of my card:
I started with a piece of cream card stock from Staples to make my card blank. Then I added a piece of patterned paper from Far Far Hill for my background.
Next came some crochet lace from my sewing cabinet and cream coloured satin ribbon from Fabricland. I used a Martha Stewart Edge Punch to cut a border on one edge of a rose pink piece of card stock from my scraps and on the off cut from the beige card stock. Both were sponged with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink from Ranger.
Next I added a vintage image from Vintage Feedsacks, which was also inked with Distress Ink. Paper flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts were added on the side some of which had some Stardust Stickles from Ranger added to make them sparkle. The little heart stick pins came from Maya Road.
I used a Martha Stewart punch to make the large heart from some scrap red card stock and then spritzed some pearl Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels on it before I added a pearl sticker from Recollections. The little hearts were treated the same way but we leftovers from an attempt to create a heart background on my Cameo. I thought I had it welded together but when it cut, it all fell apart so I have a bag of big hearts and teeny hearts. I will definitely have to revisit that design.
I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
Divas By Design - Vintage with Lace
Sweet Stamps - Lace and Hearts
