Welcome to Create with Connie and Mary’s Creatively Simple Challenge! Each month Mary and I will pick a theme…we are kicking off the new year with the theme of “LOVE”. Time to get ready for Valentine’s Day, right? We’ll create a simple card every Tuesday in January using that theme!
- Base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Garden Green cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
- The 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Basic White cardstock was embossed with the Brick & Mortar Embossing Folder and added to the front.
- The heart was stamped three times with Sweet Sorbet Ink on Basic White cardstock and punched.
- The leaf duo was inked three times with Parakeet Party Ink, then sponged with Garden Green Ink before stamping on Basic White cardstock, then punched.
- The hearts and leaves were assembled on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- With Love was stamped with Garden Green Ink on 1/2 x 1-1/2 Basic White cardstock and the end cut at an angle.
- It was layered on a 1/4 x 2-1/4 strip of Sweet Sorbet cardstock and added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Three Elegant Gems were added to the hearts for a little bling.
