You Make My Heart Happy

Hi there, I hope you had a lovely day!

Today I was feeling so grateful to have a fireplace mantel full of handmade cards sent to me by friends I have made through Instagram on my card-making journey.  I made this card with the crafty community in mind because they, and you, truly make my heart happy.

I used the Altenew Botanical You layering stamp set to stamp the Y-O-U using Altenew inks: Grass Field, Shadow Creek, Rubellite, and Maple Yellow.  I stamped onto Neenah Solar White 80# Classic Crest cardstock and then used the coordinating die to cut out the letters.  I used the die three more times on scrap 110# white cardstock and then glued four layers of each letter together to add dimension.

For the background, I stamped the Altenew Pattern Play – Diamond stamp set in Altenew Limestone ink onto an A2-sized piece of Neenah Solar White.  The pattern reminds me of a trellis which I thought would look nice with the florals.

To create a solid area for the sentiment to sit on, I used the Altenew Fine Frames Cover die to cut a collection of frames from Neenah Solar White.  I glued three of the medium sized frames together onto another piece of Neenah Solar White.  I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and then adhered the Y-O-U.  To finish, I adhered this small panel to the background and then adhered the background to an A2-sized card base.

Thanks so much for visiting!
