Because I Care Hearts card


I hope you have been enjoying your week so far!  Seth's parents may be driving down tomorrow and staying through the weekend.  If they do end up coming, I may not get much time to craft at all. :)

Anyway, I created today's card for the Memory Makers forum color challenge this week.  Here are the colors, found on a pretty hair clip from Anthropologie:

And here's my card...

I loved the black and white striped "petal" on the hair clip, and decided to duplicate it on my card.  To create this, I cut thin strips of Whisper White, and adhered it to a piece of Basic Black cardstock.  I then punched out a heart using the Full Heart punch.  The little ruffles at the bottom were just layers of scallop-punched cardstock, and the sentiment is from a new stamp set in the 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog, called Because I Care.

By the way... the base green cardstock is a new In Color for this coming catalog, called Pear Pizzazz.  Isn't that name cute?  I love greens, and this one is so yummy!  Makes me crave a fresh, juicy pear!

Well, thanks for stopping by!  I need to get the apartment cleaned up!

  1. Such a cute card! I love this color combo and the B&W heart. It's all so fresh looking.

  2. Wow! Love that color combo. I have to say it again, your eye for color is outstanding! And the way you interpret it onto your project is so tasteful and creative.

  3. Perfect! Love these colors. I still believe everything needs a splash of black!! I, too, loved the black and white stripe and I think it is the finishing touch on your beautiful card. I still don't know where you get these beautiful ideas. Wish I could do cards!!

    BTW I love your side bars on your blog. So pretty!
