Azure Mini Heart Card

Hello hello! Yes, I HAVE had a few cups of coffee this morning. :) My weekend was far too short, but this coming weekend will be better! It will be the start of my two EXTRA days off per week that I'll have to get organized! But, I'm sure you didn't tune in to hear about that stuff... you want to see GOODS, right?! So, here is my


Azure Mini Heart Card

A fellow Angel and Christmas Secret Sister, Maria, sent me these wonderful shimmery accented chipboard pieces as a part of the goodies that she gave me! Typically, I like to ink or paint chipboard, but these little lovlies were so pretty already, that I designed the card around them.

As in my previous post, I had one more leftover brayered square that HAD to be used! It just so happened to match the shimmery chipboard perfectly!! SCORE! I wanted a lot of white space on this so that it would really showcase the heart/square, so I didn't use any DP or additional elements, and I chose to put the sentiment inside.

I know a lot of people really pretty-up the insides of their cards, and I think I'm going to start doing that more often. This is a very simple interior, but I love the linear graphic that leads to the sentiment that is located in an atypical spot.

Stamps: Criss Cross (current Hostess Level B set), Trendy Greetings (only $9.98 for a set of 22!)
Paper: Premium White card base, White UltraSmooth (brayered square)
Other: Pop Dot, Speedball Brayer, misc. chipboard parenthesis

Don't forget about the 50% OFF SALE... not that you could... since I've mentioned it in every post since I found out! You can order online here, or send me an email with your order to also receive customer and/or Hostess Benefits!!

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

"but I love the linear graphic that leads to the sentiment that is located in an atypical spot."

Making up for lost time out of the office? LOL.

I am really liking the blue colors you are using. It is my second favorite color (purple is my favorite of course!) I also like how you used the chipboard. That is one thing I need to start using more! Love it, love it, love it!
