Hey everybody! I hope you’re having a fantastic weekend! You know where I am, lol! ;) Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I was dubbed a 2021 Front Porch Gang Master Rocker (along with quite a few others) by the lovely Chana, owner of 613 Avenue Create, which is an honor bestowed upon those who often made the Top Rocker list in 2021! We were offered a guest design gig and I chose the month of February, so here I am! The challenge this month is Anything Goes with an optional twist of My Whimsical Valentine. I dug into my digital image stash and found a precolored image and sentiment from Mo’s Digital Pencil and created this super adorable Valentine! This image is called Fabulous – and yes, she is fabulous and just the cutest little thing ever!
I cut a standard A2 top-folding card base from CutCardStock Basis 110# White cardstock along with layering panels from two coordinating patterned papers from The Paper Studio Four Seasons and Everything In Between paper pad. Using the My Favorite Things Stitched Scallop Basic Edges Die-namics, I cut one of the patterned papers off just below the half-way point and adhered them together and then to the card base. I printed the image twice on CutCardStock Basis 80# White cardstock and cut one of them with a Memory Box Stitched Oval Layers die. I fussy cut the second image, ran a black marker around the outside edge, and layered it on top of the die cut image with foam squares for a little dimension. I added Ranger Glossy Accents to her glasses for some interest. I adhered the die cut to the card front, and added some clear bling and enamel hearts to finish it off.
I printed the inside sentiment on CutCardStock Basis 80# White cardstock, trimmed it, and embellished it with leftover strips of the patterned paper used on the front along with a very thin strip of CutCardStock Pop-Tone Black Licorice cardstock. I stamped an additional Valentine sentiment in red ink and layered the panel on the black cardstock.
And one more peek… such an adorable image! I don’t use digital images very often anymore but I couldn’t resist this one! ;)
