Turtle-ly Awesome

Here's another Valentine's Day card to add to the collection I'm sending to a card drive for kids.  I used an older WPlus9 stamp set along with this week's Mojo Monday sketch for this one.

Turtle-ly Awesome card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from WPlus9

My focal image is the turtle from the Bitty Buddy Valentines set.  I stamped it in green pigment ink, cut it out with the matching die, then used dimensional dots to adhere it to a cream panel.  The "you're turtle-ly awesome" sentiment was stamped beneath the turtle in brown pigment ink.  I adhered the turtle to a kraft panel along with coordinating brown cardstock and green star patterned paper panels.  After wrapping the panel with ivory twill, I layered it on to an easy to write on cream card base.

Along with this card, I have some sad news to share. After 6 fabulous years, Kate has made the  decision to close i {heart} papers.  You can read all the details on the IHP blog.  I've been with IHP and Kate since the very beginning and I've loved every minute and can't thank her enough for having me along for the ride!  I'm sad to see IHP close, but so very grateful for the lasting friendships I've made as part of the IHP team.

Here's what you need to know about the store closing.  Starting today the store inventory will be cleared out.  Use coupon code BYEIHP at checkout. Everything is 30% off using this code. As inventory dwindles, the amount of the coupon may change to help move things along. You receive the discount that is in place at the time of your order, even if the discount amount increases later on in the sale. You will get the best selection early on, so don't wait. If you wait, items will sell out!

Due to the steep discounts, free shipping is not being offered any longer. Shipping will be calculated at checkout.

Gift certificates must be redeemed by Jan 31, 2015. New gift certificates are no longer for sale.

And obviously, all sales are final.
