Two Young Loves - Cute Card Challenge Card


I want to thank all those lovely get well comments left yesterday, they were so nice to read and really made me feel very accepted in your crafty blog world, I really dont know how to express how much I appreciate that. Although Im still unfortunately suffering from the infection, I do seem to have regained my voice today, so hopefully its now on the turn and it wont be long before I begin to feel myself again.
I did manage eventually this morning to finish of a card I started yesterday to enter for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge. The stamped image is one of the Penny Black ones, I have stamped it onto white card and coloured it with my Karisma prisma colouring pencils, then cut it out with one of the Nestabilitie Label dies, and used another one in a pale blue pearlescent card for the mount.
The base card is a 8"x 8" card, onto which I have layered up a piece of pink pearlescent card with one of the Bearly Mine Extreme Designs papers, the second layer is another of the designs but with this one I have used one of my Martha Steward border punch, the design is the Valentine heart one. This I have layed across the middle of the base card, and on top of this I have put a strip of the same pink pearlescent card, but I have put this through my Cuttlebug machine with the heart embossing folder.
I stamped a greeting onto white card and with a piece of blue pearlescard card used one of the ribbon label dies to cut it out. I then trimmed around the greeting and stuck it to the blue mount with a small piece of foam tape, then threaded through the holes a piece of spotted blue ribbon. This was then stuck to the piece of pink embossed card, which was then mounted in the centre of the last layer. Then stuck the stamped mounted image to the right hand side.
The flowers have been created with my cosmos punches, Ive used three different sizes cupped and moulded with my tools then layered them up to create four flowers, these were then stuck with some leaves to the card, they had been punched out with my fern and dusty miller punches.
The final touch was the heart gems stuck across the bottom of the card on the printed heart pattern paper.
