Love you! Paper Playtime Challenge #34


Hello and welcome to my blog today! Today at Paper Playtime, our fun Challenge #34 is to use the word LOVE on our project. With Valentine's Day fast approaching, I decided to make a Valentine's Day card. I started with a 6 1/2 x 5 inches white cardstock card. The gorgeous designer papers are from K&Company. I love pink and green and whenever I saw this paper I thought it would be pretty for my card.
The background paper is cut 6 1/4 x 4 3/4 inches. The label and words are cut from Cricut Lite Lacy Labels cartridge using all 4 features and each cut at 4 inches. This is the first image on the first row of the cartridge. Isn't it a pretty cut! The white paper is a pretty metallic shimmer from Recollections Winter. The white lace strip under the label is cut using the Martha Stewart Doily Lace Trim edge punch.

For the inside of my card, I used the heart patterned paper for the background. Martha Stewart Lace Punch is used on one end of the paper and then the paper is mounted on the strip of pink striped paper. The sentiment "Be My Valentine" is cut at 10 inches using Cricut Wild Card. This is the phrase feature and can be found on page 67.         

Hope you enjoy my card! Now it is your turn to play along with us. Submit any new paper project and use the word Love on your project. You have until midnight Saturday to enter your project.. We look forward to seeing your projects!
