MFT Color Challenge 61: Love You

I’ve been wanting to participate in My Favorite Things Color Challenges for some time.  It always seems like I’m on a deadline for other cards I need to make, I’m out of town, or various other reasons why I don’t do it.  (Couldn’t be that it intimidates me have my work on display.)

This week’s challenge used coral, red persimmon, blue, and gray.  Since it is getting close to Valentine’s Day I decided to use the Heart of Heart die from Impression Obsession and fill the hearts will all the colors of the challenge.

I used scrap paper that I have in my stash and cut a circle from gray and blue cardstock using the third largest My Favorite Things Pierced Circle STAX.  I then placed the Heart of Heart die in the center of the gray circle and once it was cut I adhered it to the blue circle cut earlier for a backing to adhered all the colored hearts to.  I cut the Heart of Heart die from all the colors in the challenge and began filling in the heart openings, gluing them in place with Ranger Multi Medium Matte.

For the card background I used My Favorite Things Chevron Coverup and cut it from blue cardstock.  I cut it again from Darice Adhesive Fun Foam and adhered it to the blue cardstock for added dimension.  I ink blended the edges with Distress Peacock Feathers ink and adhered it to a side folded cardbase made from 120# Gina K. Designs White Cardstock.

To adhere the focal image to the card I cut a circle from Darice Adhesive Fun Foam just smaller than colorful heart circle and glued it to the front of the card using Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

For the sentiment I cut Hero Arts Love and Heart die from red cardstock six times.  Since the top of the “L” was going to lay on top of the focal image I cut off the loop so that it would lay flat on the circle.  The word “you” from Winnie & Walter The Big, the Bold, and Party stamp set was stamped with Simon Says Stamp Clear Embossing Ink and then heat set with Gina K. Designs Fine Detail White Embossing Powder.  The word was cut into a narrow banner and adhered to the card front with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.
