This week's challenge #23 over at Just Buggin is called "Love Ya": make something for Valentine's Day using your Cricut. Here is my Design Team project:
I used Accent Essentials for the die cut hearts on this card. I ran them through the Cuttlebug using the "Script" folder to get the words on them. Because I used white-core cardstock (CTMH), they came out looking "distressed", which I was actually planning to do anyway! I further sanded them for just a little more distress and then inked the tops of them in Chocolate and Blush. I think it gives them an "antique" look.
I used CTMH That's Amore patterned papers for the mat on this card, with Chocolate organdy ribbon tied around them. I inked and distressed the edges of each element on this page, including the mats (Tulip), hearts (Chocolate, Blush) and sentiment (Tulip, Blush, Chocolate).
For the sentiment, I stamped "Love is all you need" (CTMH "My One & Only My Acrylix Stamp Set) in Tulip onto Blush cardstock and matted it with Chocolate. I added a Chocolate mini flower and brad and then attached it with foam dots for dimension.
Thanks for looking! :)
