Hello there! I'm happy to say that the worst of my cold is behind me, and hopefully this will be a productive week. I'm just sneaking in a card for the Vertical Sketch Challenge over in the Moxie Fab World. I paired it up with the current colors from The Color Throwdown.
I started by cutting a heart from a scrap of paper, then traced it onto Cherry Cobbler cardstock three times and cut out the hearts. Two are debossed with a music score and the third is stamped with PTI's Background Basics: Sheet Music. I sponged the edges of all three hearts with black ink for definition.
The black cardstock panel is also debossed with the Music Score impression plate, with a sentiment from WPlus9's Spring Post heat embossed in white in the bottom corner.
The top panel is white cardstock stamped with Background Basics: Houndstooth using Pacific Point ink.
Cardstock: Stampin' Up! (Cherry Cobbler, Pacific Point), Papertrey Ink (True Black, white)
Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Background Basics: Sheet Music, Background Basics: Houndstooth), WPlus9 Design Studio (Spring Post)
Ink: Stampin' Up! (Pacific Point), Clearsnap (Frost White), Inkadinkadoo (Black)
Tools: Papertrey Ink (Music Score impression plate)
Accessories: Michaels (ribbon), Stampendous (embossing powder)
There you have it: a not-too-girly love note well ahead of Valentine's Day. I think the houndstooth helps to tone down the mushiness.
I hope you have a great week ahead of you! Thanks for spending a little bit of it here with me!
