Here’s another post for Ellen Hutson’s July, 2016 Mix It Up Challenge with Neat & Tangled.
Maybe it’s the hot, humid weather here in Chicago that has made me kind of sluggish and a little bit lazy in making more elaborate cards. Whatever the reason, I’m currently into a minimal CAS card style with very little if any embellishments (sequins, glitter, etc.).
This is a second card I made for Ellen Hutson’s classroom July, 2016 Mix It Up Challenge.
It features a cascade of hearts (Neat & Tangled: Falling Hearts) and a simple sentiment in straight and simple lines (Essentials by Ellen: All Inside (words love and hug) and Basic Alpha (for the ampersand).
The cascading hearts were stamped multiple times across the top of the card front using a rich red ink. I stamped the words love and hugs from the All Inside stamp set and stamped the small ampersand from the Basic Alpha stamp set between the two words. I cut down my original A2 card front by trimming it an eighth of an inch on the vertical sides (for a 4-inch by 5.5 inch card front) and then mounted this onto an A2, top-folding card base.
Wishing you love & hugs!
