Sketch Starter #8


Making a few last minute Valentine’s for local friends.  I actually managed to mail out my Valentine’s on Monday!  (Woohoo for me, one of my crafty goals this year, is to actually mail the cards!) They might even make it to their recipients on time!  This CAS card was created based on the Sketch Starter Challenge #8, here is a look at the original sketch design-

This card was super simple to create.  I started by matting a stitched circle panel onto Candy Apple cardstock.  My hearts were created with the Hearts Thin Cuts previously sold by Close To My Heart.  The solid hearts were cut in Candy Apple, and then stitched hearts were cut in White Daisy.  I added the Buffalo print design with a stamp from the Doodled Borders stamp set.  The arrow design is from the same set. I popped up the top layer of hearts with 3-D foam tape for added dimension.  A Valentine sentiment finishes off the card!  In case you missed it, here is the February Stamp of the Month, Doodled Borders.

There are many ways to add this set to your collection in February.  VIP members can get the set for FREE with a qualifying order.  Not a VIP member?  You can add this set to a qualifying order for only $5. You can also purchase the set as a stand alone item for $18.95.  The choice is yours, but the set is only available to purchase February 1-28, 2021.
