This card is a perfect example of what I am trying to do. While the sentiment does say I love you, it does not have to be for Valentines day, it could be for a friend or a family member who is going through a tough time and just needs a reminder that they are loved. I also used a stamp set that has many different sayings that can go with it so my customers will be able to change up the card to fit their needs and I love that!
Here is a glimpse of the set and the many different options my customers can chose from when mixing up this card to meet their needs.
When making this card I also focused on the Lagoon rather than the Cranberry or Hollyhock so that it would not scream Valentine. This focus on the Lagoon helped me to meet this weeks challenge at Heart to Heart Challenges. The challenge this week is a colour challenge and we are challenging you to use the colour that correspondence with your birth month according to this list:
Jan.- Glacier May- Topiary Sep.- Cranberry
Feb.- Pixie Jun.- Lagoon Oct.- Sunset
Mar.- Thistle Jul.- Pacifica Nov.- Cocoa
Apr.- Slate Aug.- Honey Dec.- Ponderosa Pine
I must also admit to being inspired by a fellow Close to my Heart consultant when making this card. I did mix things up a bit, but the basics of the card I must give credit to Tina Lovell
