This week I challenged myself to make horizontal cards. I usually make vertical cards so I wanted to try something a little different.
This week's inspiration features Burt and Doris (T909), an older stamp from High Hopes and Happy Anniversary (F120) for my sentiment (also from High Hopes).
I started by colouring my stamp with alcohol markers and then fussy cut it. This time I left a bit of white edge around it. I didn't have quite the right off white background paper I needed so I inked up a background words stamp. Then I cut out my heart diamond fold shape and added some pink cardstock in the background. I cut and matted my patterned paper from Simple Stories, added my heart border and then Burt & Doris - mounted with pop dots. I added some glitter to Doris' earrings and necklace and Blueberry gumdrops finish off my card.
