Hi! Will you be mine? That's one of my favorite Valentine's Day sentiments each year. Do you have a favorite Valentine's sentiment, one you that you consider your go-to sentiment?
Today I am going to share cards using
ONE sentiment three different ways. Sometimes it's hard to find time to
create several different designs, all with different sentiments, during
holidays, so I thought it would be fun to share three different card
designs using one sentiment.
On my first card, "be mine banner", I wanted to create a banner using some of the newest designer tapes released at Winter CHA. You will LOVE these colors and patterns, they are bold and fresh! I chose to use my Cameo to cut the "Banner Hearts" by Lori Whitlock and the "Be Mine Title Single Fold Square Card" by Jamie. I love these two Cameo cuts so much and wanted to incorporate them on a Valentine card this year. I wanted to use white card stock so as to bounce the fun colors and patterns in the tapes and enamel dots.
Supplies: Collectable:Journey patterned paper,'Unforgettable' decorative tape,'I'm With' enamel dots;Decorative Tape Sets: Red & Turquoise decorative tape;Misc:Cameo, machine stitching, hand-stitching, white cardstock
After adhering the banner to the designer tape strips, I hand-stitched the banners and add an enamel dot to each to add to the fun of the banner. I also decided the sentiment needed a couple of little white hearts to pull the dimension, top to bottom, together.
On my next card I decided to use the negative from the Cameo cut and back it with some patterned paper. I added some hearts, stitches and more enamel dots for another playful spin on the sentiment
Supplies: Collectable:Journey patterned paper,'Unforgettable' 6 x 6 designer pad,'I'm With' enamel dots; Misc:Cameo, machine stitching, hand-stitching, white cardstock
On my last card, I thought there might be some that would like to play with the sentiment that do not use a Cameo. So I did a little research online to find these cute chalkboard sentiment downloads here: Chalkboard Printables,
To create my block of "black patterned paper" I adhered strips of the black designer tapes to a block of cardstock. I really like the look of the patterns of black tapes and couldn't wait to adhere the chalkboard sentiment. The sentiment looks so fun against the tapes and I am going to try one of the chalkboard sentiments against the red tapes next :)
