Carrying My Love to You




This card was made for the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #374.
As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew I wanted to use my Memory Box "Loopy Rings" die I bought in 2012 on a whim. I used Recollections Silver cardstock for both the rings and the Sizzix "Dotted Rectangles" die-cut frame. Since the rings are so delicate and thin, I first put Scor-Tape on the back of the silver cardstock, then did the die cutting. It required several passes through my Big Shot to cut all the way through. This allowed me to simply peel off the Scor-Tape backing and attach the rings to the card front. Too often, if I use glue, it gets smeared over the shiny front of silver elements, so Scor-Tape solved the problem.

The "Love" sentiment and heart were cut using Sizzix "Celebration Words" thinlits, and Spellbinders Nestabilities "Classic Hearts" dies respectively. The were die cut from Stampin' Up! (SU) Lovely Lipstick foil cardstock, and attached with Zig 2-Way glue.

I am rating the difficulty level for this card as a "2" out of a possible "5". Of course, as usual, it takes 3x the amount of time to come up with the design as it does to create it, but the creation was pretty straightforward once I had my design nailed down. I think it will make a nice anniversary card or just an "I Love You" card for special occasions.
