So I learned that the weekly challenge winners are selected randomly. Though that was a stab to my competitive heart...I was kind of glad to hear that the process is pretty fair. I know that I'm not a newbie not like some of the folks on the blog, but I'm also nowhere near the levels of some of the work I have seen. So this is really just fun and inspiring.
This week's challenge was to create a love note.
Your project must include a heart and embossing (we want to see you incorporate those Cuttlebug embossing folders). Project must also contain atleast 2 Cricut cuts to qualify.
I decided to make a Valentine's Day card with some leftover paper. I created a card that expresses the 1000 kisses I wish to shower my love with.
I must admit that these challenges are helping me look through stuff and challenging me to find ways to use some of my scraps. I tried to combine a few colors...but stuck to the traditional pink and red for V-day.
Here's a close-up of the cute embossing folder I used - called Spots & Dots.
To bring in a bit of the blue, I lightly brushed some Ranger Distress Ink (weathered wood) on the embossed circles. It gave them a little tint of blue. Not sure if you can see them in the picture that well.
I wanted to balance all the colors throughout the card, so I layered ribbons at the bottom section next to the cute Marquee.
Here's a close up of the Marquee with half of the wording from Winter Woodland cartrdige. The full cut out says Frosty Kisses, but I eliminated the Frosty as there is nothing frosty about that many kisses!
Nothing fancy here...just something I put together quickly while watching the Grammy's. It's fun to multi-task with crafts. LOL
