Love You

It's been a while since I played along in the Muse challenge, but Michele's pretty card for this week's challenge caught my eye and I couldn't resist trying my own take on her die cut technique.

Love You card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking AloudOn my version, I placed a layered die cut word at the intersection between a pattern and a solid.  My pattern comes from a patterned paper panel.  I die cut Winnie and Walter's "love" die from hot pink cardstock a few times and placed it on the cardfront, nesting it in the space where I'd cut the word from the top of the patterned paper panel.  For the final layer, I added the patterned paper on top, giving the bottom half of the layered word a 3-d like look.  Now that I look at it again, I should have removed the piece from the open space in the "e."  Oh, well . . .

I tried to stop there, but I couldn't!  I stamped the word "you" from the My Precious stamp set beneath the layered die cuts in black ink, then added a trio of sparkly pink sequins around it.  The final touch was a simple die cut kraft stitched heart.  It was adhered to the bottom half of the "l" using foam tape.

Materials Used:
My Precious stamp set, In a Word:  Love die (Winnie and Walter); VersaFine Onyx Black (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); Raspberry Fizz and Kraft cardstock, Dotty Biscotti patterned paper (Papertrey Ink); Of the Heart die (Lil' Inker Designs); pink sequins (Treehouse Studio); foam tape


  1. No better way to say thanks, than with love attached to it, Lori! Oh this is just as sweet as it can be ... LOve the pink with kraft! Of course, one can never go wrong with W&W, can they? Thanks for playing cards with me, Lori! I miss you and that wonderful team! xx

  2. Love-ly card. The pink and kraft go together so nicely.

  3. What a gorgeous card! Love the way you contrasted the paper in the die cut sentiment!

  4. what a striking and lovely card! I can't wrap my head around how you achieved the design on the die cut letters (need more coffee this AM!) but they pack a real "Wow" factor!

  5. Sensational looking card, looks even better close up. Brilliant
