This week's OWH cards are "I Love You" cards. I packed up a flat rate box of cards this past weekend and noticed I was a bit short on Love You themed cards so I set out to use the past couple of sketches and add I Love You sentiments for these cards to fill the box. Yeah! I'm getting closer to my goal of 150 cards!
Here's my cards for this weeks Write Home Wednesday. The papers for both these cards came from MME 6x6 paper pad Dolled Up. I typically use Bazzill cardstock with my cards because it's a bit heavier and I can get it at my local Michaels Arts & Crafts or ACMoore store.
I kept the first card a bit simple and stamped my sentiment on one of the banners
Here's the inspiration for this card
I used less layers than in the sketch but popped up the middle banner to help the sentiment stand out. My patterned paper was a plain enough patterned that it doesn't distract form the sentiment.
For my second card I used Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge for the flowers and Lacy Labels for the butterflies.
I added some gems to the centers of all the embellishments for some dimension.
Here's the inspirations sketch
