Love You

Posted on by

Hi there.  Today I am sharing a really CAS Mix Media card I made with my husband in mind.  He’s been feeling under the weather the last couple of days and I wanted to make a card to let him know I am here for him no matter how awful he looks, feels and looks.  Oops, did I say that twice? *lol* 😂  Actually, he looks the same to me.  Anyway, in keeping with my crafty resolution to use what I buy at least once, I used another two NBUS stamp sets for today’s card.

First, I die cut a Stitched Rectangle panel from white cardstock.  Then I created a mask with masking paper and the beautiful Heartstrings die.  Spun Sugar distress ink was blended through the mask to create the background.  I added Perfect Pearls to give it some shimmer.  It was difficult to capture it in a photo, but it is pretty IRL

I stamped the image with Versafine black ink several times using my MISTI to get a good solid impression, then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.

The sentiment was white heat embossed on a black cardstock strip and mounted with foam adhesive. For more shimmer I added clear Wink of Stella to the strip.  The stitched panel was adhered to a white top folding card base and a few NBUS clear droplets were added to finish.

I actually created the monochromatic card first with Smoky Slate ink because I know my hubby is not a fan of pink or colours for that matter.  I thought the gray felt a little cold and a subtle colour would soften it up.  And I callied it… my hubby liked the gray and disliked the pink.

  2. Love how you made your own mask from that fab die. Men are weird with pink, they love or hate it!
    Thanks for linking up at STAMPlorations. 🙂

  3. What a beautiful design. You’re positioning of the silhouettes is perfect within the heart and I love the CAS placement at the top of the card.

  6. your stenciling is beautiful, the gray certainly does pop. I’m sure you Hubby loved it. Seems as though everyone is sick at the moment.

  7. Beautiful! It might be worth being sick just to get such a nice card, although I think your husband may not agree.
