Paper Smooches SPARKS-Love Never Melts

This week's Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge is an Anything Goes challenge.  I used the adorable Cool Dudes set and matching dies for this sweet wintery design.

Love Never Melts card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Paper Smooches
The snow couple was stamped on shimmery white cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  I used one of the Backdrop Builders dies to make a curvy snowbank to set the pair on.  The little heart placed between them was die cut with one of the dies from the new Tiny Hearts set.

I placed a piece of a white paper doily at the edge of the small scene, then adhered it to a pale pink panel over a contrasting red cardstock strip.  The set's "love never melts" sentiment was stamped beneath the scene in red pigment ink.

Don’t miss what the rest of the SPARKS team has created this week. Here’s where to find them:
