I Think You're Spectacular

Here's my card for this week's My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge.  I used the Geek Is Chic stamp set and coordinating Geek Is Chic Glasses dies to create this love themed design in a classic color scheme.

I Think You're Spectacular card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from My Favorite Things
The design was built on a pale gray card base with a strip of darker gray dotted patterned paper centered on the cardfront.  I die cut the large cat's eyes eyeglasses frame from gray cardstock, then filled in the lenses with pieces of acetate for a glass-like look.  The glasses were adhered to the panel using foam tape.  I cut a pair of hearts from red cardstock using the Staggered Heart Border die and added those to the opposite side of the patterned paper strip.  The "I think you're spectacular" sentiment was stamped in black ink on a red fishtail flag strip, then adhered across the bottom of the patterned paper panel.

Materials Used:
Geek Is Chic stamp set, Grout Gray and Steel Grey cardstock, Die-namics Geek Is Chic Glasses, Staggered Heart Border, and Fishtail Flag STAX dies (My Favorite Things); Memento ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); Real Red cardstock (Stampin' Up!); gray dotted patterned paper (Michaels); acetate; foam tape
