Deconstructed Love

Here's my card for the current Deconstructed Sketch.  I went with love themed card using stamps from Avery Elle.

Love You card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Avery Elle
My card features a soft pink color scheme with gold accents and pops of coral, too.  I tend to really favor silver as a metallic, but I have to admit that gold is growing on me!  The focal image is a stamped heart from the Simply Tags set.  I stamped the heart in pale pink pigment ink, then heat embossed the image with a pearly embossing powder to get a raised look like the heart would have if it were really cross stitched.

I adhered the heart to a pale pink panel over a coral fishtail flag strip.  The stamped panel was topped with a delicate white bow.  The layered sentiment panel was adhered to a pink ombre dotted patterned paper panel over a gold paper strip.  I stamped "love you" in shimmery gold ink at the bottom of the dotted panel, using a combination of two sentiments from the set.  The finished panel was adhered to a pale pink card base.

Materials Used:
from i {heart} papers:  Avery Elle Simply Tags stamp set and Pixie ink; Fancy Pants Burlap and Bouquets 6x6 paper pad; May Arts white ribbon; Wow White Pearl embossing powder

other:  Insulation Pink cardstock, Die-namics Fishtail Flag Stax dies (My Favorite Things); Berry Sorbet cardstock (Papertrey Ink); gold paper (Target); Delicata Golden Glitz ink (IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko); oval die (Spellbinders); corner rounder


  1. Lori this is wonderful. I am totally with you on preferring silver most of the time but this looks great!! Thanks for joining us this week. :)
