YEAH!! LOVING the Challenge this week over on the
IO STAMPS BLOG!! =)
I'm Thankful For Challenge!!
So after looking through my IO Stamps and Dies I decided to make a Card using the
D8871 Rose Text Envelope Stamp
and the Heart Of Hearts Die 052-I.
I thought about how my family and friends tell me that I have a Heart of Gold and that I wanted to show that my Heart of Gold is THANKFUL for being FULL of LOVE!!
So I decided how fun would it be to die cut the Heart out of a gold textured paper and then add some felt hearts from the same die cut to the top of some of the hearts!! Once I had it put together I thought it needed to be rising from something and the Rose Text Envelope stamp was perfect because I like to send cards and am so THANKFUL to have LOTS of Loved Ones (family and friends) to send them to!! So that is how my card came to be!! I think that we sometimes forget to celebrate things about ourselves that others tell us and this is my tribute to myself and acknowledging that I have a Heart Of Gold and it is so FULL with LOVE for those all around me!!
I wanted my envelope to have a 3-D look so I added some embossing lines to the seams and then I curled the edges of the envelope and bent the flap back so it would look like it was FULL with the Heart coming out of it!! I added some distress ink and pop dots to raise them from the card front!! I LOVE the way it came together and I think I could give this card for LOTS of OCCASIONS!! A Golden Anniversary, a milestone celebration for Retirement, a Wedding or for Mother's Day to my Mother or Mother-In-Law who both have Hearts of Gold as well!! So whatever I decided I know It will go to a deserving person!! Here is my finished card!! =)
