Hello and welcome back!
Have you joined the Inky Paws Challenge yet? There are only a few more days left to join for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the Newton’s Nook Online Store!
I was so inspired by the beautiful Heartfelt Holidays Stamp Set from Newton’s Nook and I thought it was the perfect stamp to use for the current color challenge! To start my card, I stamped and die cut the heart image from the Heartfelt Holidays Stamp Set and colored it with my Copic markers.
Dark reds: R29, R08, R05
Light reds: R05, R14, R02
Dark greens: G29, G19, G17
Light greens: YG05, YG23, YG01
Next, I took two pieces of kraft card stock that were cut to 5.5 x 8.5 inches, and scored both on four and a quarter inches and two and an eighth. Next, I folded the flaps to create a double gate fold, and used the slightly smaller heart die from the DIES to cut a window in the front. To add a little more depth to the kraft, I used the heart and created a pattern with white ink all around the card stock.
To finish the card, I glued the colored heart into the middle of the back panel of the card. Then, I cut a strip of red card stock to 1 x 9 and cut the bottom with one of the dies from the Sky Borders Die Set. I folded the strip around my closed card and glued the strip closed, so my card would stay closed when the belly band was on. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment “Peace, Love, & Joy” on to a .75 inch strip of white paper and attached that to the belly band.
I hope you join us in the Inky Paws Challenge! It really is so much fun to join and expands your creativity!
Thanks for stopping by!
