Greetings! For today's CPS 5th Anniversary Day 8 celebration, Lori Craig and The Cat's Pajama's challenged their readers to design a card using layout CPS #102. Since the layout features a heart and I went to church this morning, I was inspired to design a Christian theme greeting card.
I chose forest green card stock to make my card base. Then, I used a Hot of the Press template to make a Scandinavian heart. I've woven some basic hearts in the past without the need of a pattern, but this template features patterns to make a woven flower and butterfly heart. Cool, right! I chalked the butterfly wings, added details with a marker, and backed the heart with card stock to give it some stability. Next, I had some lined vintage looking card stock on which I used my calligraphic skills to write the Bible verse from Leviticus 19:18. I layered vintage lace and rick-rack along the bottom edge using Terrifically Tacky Tape. As an additional embellishment, I glued down two vintage looking green stamps on the left hand top and bottom corners. I attached the finished text block to the card base. Finally, I used some foam dots on the back of the heart to attach it between the 2 stamps.
I am very pleased with my design, because it's truly reflective of who I am. I love to hear your comments, so you are cordially invited to follow my blog and let me know what you think. Godspeed!
