Altenew + WPlus9: Love You Card

Altenew & WPlus9 Love You Card by Maria Byrd |

First post (Woo-hoo!) features my Love You card perfect for Valentine's day or Mother's day.  Lush florals and foliage from Altenew Peony Bouquet and Beautiful Day stamps and colored with Altenew Crisp Dye Ink Cubes in Rose Petal and Summer Afternoon.

"Love You" sentiment from WPlus9 Biggest Fan tamped on a tag - cut from Mama Elephant Creative Cuts Park Avenue - and heat embossed in gold.  Distressed with Ranger Distress Inks in Forest Moss, Mowed Lawn, Barn Door, and Mustard Seed.  A touch of Wink of Stella added shimmer to the peony.

Strips of Post-it Notes temporarily held the pieces in place during assembly.  The arrangement is glued on a DCWV Gilded Paper Stack die-cut with A2 size Lawn Cuts Stitched Rectangle Stackables.  This piece is then adhered to a Neenah heavyweight cardstock with double-sided tape.

Inside the card, a smaller heart was gold-embossed on center of a larger one and combined with a yellow bloom, green foliage, and strip of gold accented DCWV paper.  The hearts were from Lawn Fawn Snow Day.  This extra touch tied in wonderfully with the front design and showed the 💗 throughout. 

Now, for more fun!  I am entering my "Love You" card to the following challenges:
