CCMC439 Sealed with Love

Welcome back!  This week’s challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary is a fun sketch challenge!  I know I’ll be using this one again!

Here’s my card:



I knew I wanted to use the Sealed with a Kiss greeting and the lips (so fun!)  The rest just came together pretty quickly!


  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Real Red, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • On top is a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White.
  • The first pattern in Sending Love DSP is 2-1/4 x 4-3/4.  The second pattern on top is 2-1/2 x 3-3/4.  Both are adhered to the Whisper White layer.
  • A piece of Real Red Stitched Satin Ribbon is placed across the front and adhered in back.
  • Sealed with a Kiss from Sending Love is stamped with Memento Black on Whisper White and cut with the Layering Circles Framelit, the background scallop circle is cut from Basic Black.
  • The lips were stamped with Real Red on Whisper White and punched with the 1″ circle punch, then adhered to the Layering Scallop Circle cut from Basic Black.
  • The envelope was cut from the Love Notes Framelits from Real Red, folded closed with Mini Glue Dots.  The small Sending Love wood embellishment was added with a Mini Glue Dot.

That’s it!  Check out the rest of the Design Team ideas over on Create with Connie and Mary this week!
