Hugs & Kisses

Here's my card for the current sketch at Match the Sketch.  I used the layout for a love themed design made with stamps and dies from Reverse Confetti.

Hugs & Kisses card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Reverse Confetti
I built my design on a piece of bold, multicolored chevron patterned paper.  I matted the panel on red cardstock and used a strip of the same red cardstock to create the background for my die cut and sentiment cluster.  The larger of the Swirlies dies makes up the background.  I cut it out multiple times and layered the pieces for dimension before adhering the stack to the cardfront.  The "hugs & kisses" sentiment from the Fancy Word Coordinates set was stamped on a narrow fishtail flag strip and placed across the silver swirl.  I accented it with a pink die cut heart and a trio of white enamel dots.  The finished panel was adhered to a pink textured card base.

Materials Used:
Fancy Word Coordinates stamp set, Brick and Iced Aqua cardstock, Swirlies and Love Notes dies (Reverse Confetti); Memento Tuxedo Black ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); Recollections silver cardstock (Michaels); Die-namics Fishtail Flag STAX dies (My Favorite Things); Lucky in Love 6x6 paper pad (My Mind's Eye); white enamel dots (Eyelet Outlet); foam tape
