Toss Me a Heart!

Today I'm sharing another Valentine card ~ this one has a cute image from Stampendous House Mouse Designs, Heart Treats.

To make this card, I stamped the image on Neenah 110# card stock and used my Copic markers for coloring.  I used an older die that I'd been gifted since I liked the way the table edge fit across the width of the die.  But then after cutting, I was left with a large white space under the table.  

It didn't take long to figure out this would be a perfect place for the sentiment.  Using the smallest die in this set, I die cut it out of the solid blue which I'd used for the matting, and stamped the sentiment 'you're so sweet'.  

I used an A2 sized card base and added the solid pink background.  As I secured the mat and colored image, I still was pleased with the sentiment just 'filling in the space' under the table.  So I raised the top of the sentiment with several foam squares, and then secured the bottom with my normal glue. This slightly tilted and raised effect really worked well to complete the card. 

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards.
