Scrappy EMT Monty Design Team Project


Happy Valentine's Day

From our Design Team Leader, Audrey:

Today is the Design Teams Monthly Blog Hop. They were asked to make a project using Hearts, Black, White, Pink and Red. They each have made some wonderful projects for everyone to see. Please stop by each members blog and check out all the wonderful creations that they have made to share and see how they made their projects.

Here is the design I came up with for this Valentine's Day project. I hope you like it.


My favorite part of this card is the Love themed background.  I have been dying to use this letterpress plate I got from Stampin’ Up.  I really like how it looks. I really wanted my letters to be pink, but I did not have any white letterpress ink to add to my white.  I then added the red border, that was punched out using an ek punch.  I wish I knew what the name of it was, but I did not write it on the back of the punch.   I topped off the border with a scalloped heart on the left, from an svgcuts collection, and added a pink flower and a sentiment.  For the hearts on the right, I simply cut them out with my cricut and added in two slots to run my ribbon through, then use a dimensional square to raise the top heart and tied my bow.  I finished off the card by adding two pink flowers from a string of ribbon my sister in law (you can visit her blog here) sent me, and a white flower with a pearl in the center from a string of ribbon I purchased at JoAnn’s.  Both hearts on the front are set up with dimensional squares.  I don’t know what I would do if I could not use dimensional squares (or dots)  in my works of art!!! 

The one issue I have when I work with the letterpress is the ink takes forever to dry, and even after I have heat set it, it still sometimes smears when I am embellishing my card, as you can see there are a few smudge marks on the card itself. 

Thank you for joining us for our Monthly Design Team Blog Hop, and as always, I look forward to reading your comments.  These always motivate me and help inspire me to do more with my art.  Please take time to visit all my design team sisters, the next stop along the way is Nicolette at www.beyoundscrapin.blogspot.com.
