Ombre Love

This simple love themed design was inspired by the current challenge at the Card Concept.  The ombre letters caught my eye, so I made them the focal point of this clean and simple design.

Love You card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-dies from Avery Elle
My version of ombre letters was made by gluing narrow strips of pink, dark pink, and red cardstock to a piece of scrap cardstock.  I used the "love" and "you" dies from Avery Elle's Fill in the Blank die set to cut out the letters.  They were arranged at the bottom of a narrow kraft cardstock strip.  To bring in the woodgrain element from the inspiration photo, I die cut a heart from woodgrain patterned paper using the Icon Fill in the Blank dies.  I replaced the "o" in you with the die cut heart, using foam tape to give it a little pop.  After wrapping the top of the kraft strip with rose twine and securing it with a bow, I adhered it to a pale pink card base.

On another note, the big liquidation sale is still in progress at i{heart} papers. As of today, the discount code BYEIHP has increased to 50% off. There are still some great items in stock, including the Fill in the Blank dies I used on this card.  Be sure to head over to IHP to take advantage of this super deal.

from i {heart} papers: Avery Elle Fill in the Blank and Icon Fill in the Blank dies; Fancy Pants Everyday Circus 6x6 paper pad; Hemptique Spring Bloom 2 twine
