I was able to sneak in a little crafting time today while my girls happily played with their Lego sets together. I took my inspiration from the sketch challenge over at Can You Case It? Make sure to drop by the CYCI? blog to check out all the great samples from the design team!
My card features one of my favorite new stamp sets from the occaisions catalog called Hey, Valentine. I just love the school of fish and the sentiment. I teach third grade, so this stamp is perfect for a Valentine for a fellow teacher or for my students.
The background paper is from the Stacked With Love DSP stack, also in the occaisions catalog. This paper features Basic Black, Whisper White, and Calypso Coral colors. I made the card base out of Calypso Coral card stock and also used it to accent the image and sentiment, which were stamped in black ink on Whisper White card stock. I used the new corner rounder to round the corners to soften them up a bit. I used the banner punch, mini heart punch, and hearts border punch to make the accents on the card. The hearts are punched out of silver glimmer paper that has been colored with Calypso Coral reinker. The color looks truer in person than in the picture above. The light Calypso Coral Blendability marker was used to color in the heart on the fish image.
