This week they have a very appropriate cupcake inspiration picture to get those lovely Valentine Day cards done. Don't you miss getting those V-day cards in elementary school? I do, but maybe I'm just crazy. It was so interesting who chose what type of card, lol. I remember some boys giving away Power Ranger V-day cards...how romantic :)
The above picture is the inspiration picture for this week and below is the card I chose to make for it. Hope you see the connection. The sentiment was handwritten (crookedly) by me since I didn't have something small enough to fit in there, or actually, I was too lazy to hunt for one that was small enough.
Oh! And this is the first time I've used seam binding! I've had it for a few weeks, but haven't had time to put it to good use. It was originally white (same as the one Tilda is sitting on), but I used some stamp pads (two shades of red, and a black stamp pad) to "distress it." I pretty much just randomly stamped the stamp pads on the seam binding while it was on a scrap piece of paper. I rather like the effect and think it matches the card perfectly :) Sadly, I didn't have time yet to decorate the inside.
I've used the sketch at Sketch and Stash. My unused stash is the seam binding and the border punch and I also used my old, neglected embossing folder.
