Sending my love

Hi everyone,

Welcome a final bonus day of our Blog Blitz!  I hope you've enjoyed all the creative posts using the latest Memory Box products.  Valentine's Day is just around the corner, so I hope to inspire you to create a cute card for that special someone.


For my card today I wanted to use this cute seal, so that was my starting point.  I die cut him from gray cardstock and inked the edges with Hickory Smoke distress ink.  To have the facial features show up I glued a piece of black cardstock on the back of the die cut.  

Next I die cut the Stitched Heart Frame and the Heart Frame from silver glitter paper. I only used the heart cut outs from the die cuts and saved the other parts for another project.  I die cut the Stitched Heart Frame once again using white cardstock and only used the frame portion for this project. 

I stamped and embossed the sentiment on black cardstock.  Now that all the components of my card are done it is time to create the background.

I sponged Candied Apple distress ink onto white cardstock and misted it with plain water.  Once this is dry I spattered the background with black ink.


Adhere all the die cuts to the card front as shown.  I used foam tape to glue the seal and the sentiment onto the card.

To finish the card I glued the card front to a black card layer which was then adhered to a white card base.


Would you like a chance to win the Sweet Seal die?  Leave a comment on this post by Sunday, January 14th, by 11:59pm EST.  Winners will be posted on the blog on January 15th.  Good luck!
