Cute Card Thursday is Sentimental

Hello friends!  Hope you’re having a great week so far!

Today starts a brand new challenge over at Cute Card Thursday and the theme for this week is “Sentimental“.  We look forward to seeing your interpretation with your creations for this challenge!  Our sponsor is Crafty Doodle Chick, so be sure to play along for your chance to win!

Here’s how I’ve interpretated the challenge this week:

Vicki-CCT601-Sentimental

I really love sentiment stamps and sometimes they just seem to get used when you need to add a sentiment with your design.  I actually like to use them as not only the focal point of a design, but I like to also use them for backgrounds!

For my card today, I have used an older Simon Says Stamp card kit. (Nov 2016)  I really loved the font and the wording in this set and the different sizes that you can mix together.  The images are from the SSS Thankful Heart stamp set.

I started by stamping two of the images from the set with white ink over the A2 sized top folding card base and then added some papers from the card kit on the bottom portion.  I took a piece of white twine around the center of the card and added a button and bow.

The heart was die cut from a piece of cardstock from the kit with a stitched heart die and then I white heat embossed the sentiment and added some craft foam behind it before attaching it to the card.  I’ve also added a couple of hearts that were cut from white cardstock.

Very simple card, but a good one to have on hand for someone!  I hope you’ve enjoyed it and please be sure to join along with us this week!

Thanks so much for stopping in and I’ll see you soon!
