I am popping in today with a quick post for the almost finishing MFT sketch Challenge #367. It is my second card in my Love Themed Card series this year.
My friend, Amy Yang inspired me to re-visit paper piecing. I recently ran into a nice paper pack at our local discount store (Aldi) and the simple red-white dots one caught my eye. I cut a 1,5 inch strip of it to cover part of a white card base.
I die cut 2 stitched rectangles: a red and a white one. On the latter I stamped the cute girl from a retired MFT Pure Innocence set and coloured with Copics. Then I stamped the image on the patterned paper again and cut the dress out with scissors. I ran a black marker on the edges before adhering it to the coloured one.
I stamped the sentiment from the same set in Versamark ink and white heat embossed on a black strip of cardstock. I made it to a banner and popped up on the card front with 3D foam tape.
A bit of stickled on the shoes and heart and a tiny amount of glossy accent on the hair charm finished it off.
I will upload this project to the MFT Sketch Challenge #367 and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Patterned paper.
I hope you like my card and will return son for more love themed fun.
See you soon,
