I can't believe we're almost through with January, but happy to finally be back to our end of the month Blog Hops at BBTB2. You should have arrived here from the wonderfully talented Shelly's blog, but if not, you may wish to start HERE, at the beginning, so you don't miss a thing. My super sweet and oh so talented friend and DT sister Maria chose two of the hearts from the Love Struck Cartridge and really wished for a layout, but was kind enough to allow us non scrappers (who me?) the option of making a card. I knew immediately what hearts I wanted to use. Scroll down 2 posts and you'll see why. I can't believe I hadn't cut them before.
The card has a shaped front which as usual, doesn't really show in the first pic. All is welded in Design Studio to the welded rectangle from George which I pull and skew until it's the right size. The front sentiment comes from Wild Card. Since "Wild about you" comes all together as a cut, I had to hide the contours of the rest of the phrase to have the "Wild" and "about" be different sizes and placed how I wanted them on the card. Let's just say it took me awhile to design this one, but I'm quite fond of it. I'm hoping a certain someone is too. HeeHee!
This one turned out to be FAT, even for me. the "U" actually ended up having a full 6 popped layers! I make my own adhesive foam using Fun Foam and double stick tape in loads of colors and cut it myself so the dimensionals aren't so distracting when viewed from the side.
And lo and behold, I even finished the inside! the dotty paper is Bo Bunny. I used small clear epoxy letters from J's and backed them with little punched circles (so they'd show up) for the "so let's" and also for the "I'm" on the front (which you can barely see because of the glare.) "Go wild" is from Straight From the Nest. Sometimes it's difficult to do an inside sentiment on a shaped front card without it showing from the front, but I placed the large heart and hugs and kisses (from Wild Card) exactly behind those on the front and the rest of the front elements hid the the slight run over of the sentiment. Of course it wouldn't be complete without some little metal adhesive hearts and the ever present adhesive beads. Now hop along, but not before leaving a comment for a chance to win a $30 gift certificate to Custom Crops. Next up is the gorgeous and super talented Julia so enjoy!
