Another love card

Inlägget postat av: on January 21, 2018

Hello everyone!

It’s Kathrin here again with another card. Valentine’s will be here before we know it – and I won’t post before it so I thought I’d make a love themed card to inspire you.

For the base I used a die cut heart with a lacey edge and put a one with straight edges cut from white cardstock on top of it. I used Distress Inks Weathered Wood to ink the white cardstock up a bit and then stamped the Letter Context stamp on the left half. I also added some ink spots using stamps from the Splats Kit. I wanted it to look like an old handwritten love letter.

The main element on my card is this saying from the German Lyrics stamp set. It is about how all flowers wither, naming a few of those flowers, all but the one named forget-me-not. I remember writing this lyric into those books you give your friends as a kid.

Again I have used a bit of Distress Ink and added a little die cut heart to the panel. It just being white looked way too plain to me.

Under the panel with the lyric I’ve put a die cut flourish and a frame with flourish edges. To make these pop a bit from the red heart in the background I’ve used white Gesso on the edges.

On the left side I’ve added a die cut birdhouse with a heart shaped opening – and yes, the heart next to the lyrics is the left over piece from that birdhouse – and tucked a butterfly underneath. There’s also some cheesecloth and lace. And of course I wanted to add a few flowers. I didn’t have tulip or carmation flowers  – two of the flowers named in the lyric – but at least I went with the roses and forget-me-nots.

Have a very happy day everyone!

Hugs, Kathrin
