TLC204 - Love You


This card was created for the Technique Lover's Challenge (TLC204) on SCS using the Mojo Monday week 70 sketch. You can find the details of the challenge here, and the sketch here.


I started with a standard card base in Chocolate Chip, and then cut a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of patterned paper for my background. I adhered it to the card base, and then cut out the following: two pieces of Pink Pirouette CS (both 1 3/4" x 4"), a piece of Whisper White CS (1 1/2" x 3 3/4"), and a piece of striped pattern paper (1 1/2" x 4").


Next, I adhered my Pink Pirouette and striped patterned paper together, then added chipboard sticker hearts to the striped paper (and cut off the excess) before attaching the layers to the card base. I then completely covered my Whisper White CS with tacky strip and then cut off the excess. Next, I cut out a bunch of different elements from a piece of paisley patterned paper and then stuck them to the CS that was covered with tacky strip. Once I was happy with the layout, I sprinkled white embossing powder over the remaining exposed tacky strip and heat embossed.


I then layered my white and green flowers, attached them to the card, then adhered my embossed paper to the remaining Pink Pirouette piece of CS. I tied two knots in two pieces of Kiwi Kiss ribbon, and attached them to the bottom of my embossed panel before attaching the strip to the card base. I used my curly label punch to punch out a piece of Basic Grey solid pink paper, and stamped my sentiment label in Kiwi Kiss, and my sentiment in Chocolate Chip ink, and added them together with pop dots. Pop dots were also added to the back of the punch before adhering to the card. To finish off the card, I added a pink chipboard sticker photo corner on pop dots, and three green buttons in the lower right hand corner.
