With All My Heart


This card was created for the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #100. I think it is awesome that she is hosting her 100th sketch challenge this week and couldn't resist joining in the celebration. If you haven't noticed yet, I'm loving the Flutter Butter patterned paper collection from BoBunny and have a couple more cards I made with it to share with you yet!

Today's card base is Chocolate Chip layered with a slightly smaller piece of Flutter Butter Willow patterned paper. The 1 1/2" strip of More Mustard cardstock was embossed using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder. The shadow layer is Flutter Butter Burst cut out using the Standard Circle Small Nestabilities and layered on to a slightly larger circle of Chocolate Chip cardstock cut out using the Standard Circle Large Nestabilities.

The image was stamped in Chocolate Chip on Whisper White using the Floral Symphony stamp set and colored in using Stampin' Write Markers. It was cut and embossed using the Standard Circle Small Nestabilities then layered on to a slightly larger circle of Chocolate Chip cardstock cut out using the Standard Circle Large Nestabilities then attached to the card base using mounting tape.

For embellishments I wrapped the Wired Edge Ribbon around the card base and tied a bow in front. The sentiment was stamped in Chocolate Chip on Whisper White using the Flirty Phrases stamp set and punched out using the Word Window Punch. To finish off the card I added two buttons threaded with DMC White.

Hope you have a wonderful day!
