Love You Much – Control Freaks swap

Here is the card that I made for the Control Freaks swap…a great bunch of gals with MEGA talent are in this swap group.  It is always like Christmas getting a swap package back in the mail.

I started with a base of Riding Hood Red.  I stamped the trio of hearts with Riding Hood Red on the Pink Pirouette layer, then adhered that to Chocolate Chip before placing it on the base layer.  I inked LOVE in Versamark, then Riding Hood Red and stamped on Very Vanilla, then embossed with clear embossing powder (a great way to get embossing powder in ALL colors!)  I colored the word LOVE with a blender pen and my Pink Pirouette reinker.  This I layered on Chocolate Chip, too.  I also placed a pink mini brad in the center of the flower and colored the leaf and stem with Certainly Celery marker.

The stripe is from Candy Lane Designer Paper…part of the Love You Much Bundle special going on right now.  Love this designer package because it has LOTS of stripe patterns…my favorites!  I did make some Pink Pirouette Faux Diamond Dust paper and punched out two of the small hearts from it and placed them with mini glue dots in the upper left corner of the LOVE layer.  Finally, I wrapped some of the Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon around the designer paper layer.

I made a couple extras of this card to give my Mom & Dad and hubby’s Mom & Dad for Valentine’s Day!  I’m sure they will love it and it certainly feels good to be done with that already!

Today I plan in working in my studio all day!  Yeah!  I had needed a break from creating gifts, classes and projects before Christmas, so it felt good to just relax.  But now I’m anxious to start creating again…can’t stay away too long.
