Be Mine Forever

Good morning and happy Monday!  I had lots and lots of stamping time yesterday and I made a few things for fun this week.  I needed some inky therapy.  This card is for Sweet Stop's SSS193, which is SO cute.  I loved this layout.

I started by cutting out some Love Me 6x6 paper from My Mind's Eye with a Postage Stamp STAX Die-namics, and then stamped the sentiment from Lovey-Dovey Sentiments in Kraft Ink - the yummiest color for a softer sentiment - I love it!

I used the Kraft ink to sponge around the edges of the postage stamp and then added a Layered Heart Border Die-namics along the bottom.  I changed up the vertical rectangle in the sketch to a group of Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics and then used the Chevron Stripes Die-namics to separate the patterned paper in the background.

I used the second Chevron Strip Die-namics for the papers inside the card and then stamped a simple sentiment in Kraft ink off-center along the top of the patterned paper.

You can find these fabulous items in the MFT Boutique:
