Hello and Happy Thursday! It's Challenge 99 over at the Art Impressions Blog today, and the challenge is "Red Hot Romance", use Red in your Project. I chose this super sweet Ai stamp called "Fur-Ever Set", SKU# 4220. My card is a regular size A card (4-1/4" x 5-1/2"). I based the background of my card from a beautiful card by Karen Barber at Splitcoast Stampers. I embossed the red cardstock with a Stampin Up! embossing folder (Fan), and then used another Stampin Up! embossing folder on the kraft panel (weave). I used a pretty border die cut (MFT) on the edges.
Here is a close up of the front. I colored in my sweet image with Copic markers, die cut out the image with a Spellbinders circle die, and distressed the edge lightly with tea dye distress ink. I layered the colored image onto a black circle die cut. I love the look of white, red, black and kraft together. I added two black crystals and a small heart that I punched out of red cardstock. I also added some black grosgrain ribbon to tie in more black to my card.
On the inside I stamped the cute and simple sentiment "Hi Valentine", SKU# G4007. I punched out a heart in red cardstock and added it above the sentiment. I think I'm going to make a batch of these cute valentine's for my family, since we are all animal lovers!
