Love You ~ PTI Make It Monday

loveyou

Good evening!!  I’m posting tonight as I’ve been trying to keep up with all the festivities over on the Papertrey Ink blog.  My card tonight is for the Make It Monday: Go to Sentiments Challenge.  You make a card using several different sentiments with the same theme.  As Valentine’s Day is coming, I thought it would be fun to make a “Love” card :)  I went through my stacks of PTI sets and pulled out the ones with “love” words.  I’ve used EIGHT sets to create this card!! ACK!! lol  Here’s a few pictures of them lined up on the panel before stamping…

As you can tell, some are brand new and some are very well loved!! LOL  After I was satisfied with the layout, I started stamping the main image in black and the rest in Versamark.  Here’s the final result…

Then I punched out the heart, rounded the corners, added ribbon, some buttons and bling (of course!) and attached it to the card base with some foam adhesive :)  I really love how it turned out…a little of Dawn and Maile are in this one :)  I just had to use melon berry and raspberry fizz with the kraft…doesn’t get much yummier than that :)  Thanks for stopping by!!  Sweet dreams…

Great take on the challenge. Wish I had more sets to be able to play along. Mind you, I don't really have time this week/month anyway. Good luck. Great card :)

Oh my gosh, Maureen! This is gorgeous. I love how the stylized "love you" is in black and the rest of the sentiments are in versamark. Beautiful colour combo!

Maureen this is a great V'day card! I love all the words put together and that little heart punch out is perfect girl! I may just need to do a little CASE of sorts.

I absolutely loved what they did with this idea and can't wait to make one of these cards. I'm finding myself needing a lot of birthday cards so I finally sucked in, took a deep breath and placed my second PTI order. YIKES! Sure isn't pretty to get the bill, but I can't wait to use all my new goodies.
This card is incredible! (And now that I've ordered, I wish I could go back and re-add on the stylish set you highlighted. Oh well - there's always next time!

Y'see - this is total justification for needing all those PTI sets! LOL!
Lovin' that sweet heart aperture, Diva!
Hugs,
