Just a really quite CAS card with the new Zing! powder I bought in ‘Aqua’ and a stylish Happy Birthday sentiment that I plucked out of the Damask Designs set

Love, Love, Love is All You Need

Hey again guys! So I had a pretty rough night of sleep and got up at 5am. My sleep is so erratic these days and I really haven’t been feeling too well as a result. But I figured since I couldn’t sleep, I was going to make a card. Yeah… I’ve gone a bit nutty! Once again, please excuse the indoor lighting… As I said, it’s 5am and there is no natural light! Bah!!!

I (HEART) U on little banners with dimensional foam! 🙂 For the challenges, I had to keep to a purple theme and the card is based on this sketch:

And here is my card!

With foam dimensionals I gave the top layer a little lift so you could see a peek of the black paper underneath for more stripey effect.

It was the perfect chance to break out my favourite hoarding items: washi tape and use them on a card! Seeing stripe and chevron in the manner the fabric felt, these were the two tapes I picked from my stash.

I decided to sew them on with a little cream thread, zig-zagged since we’re on the subject of clothes 😉 The ends of the washi tapes are handcut! Phew that was a little difficult as I am terrible with a pair of scissors.

Deliberately letting the ‘T’ start off from the black of the chevron as I see black-on-black use on the model in the inspiration image… Still not sure if I like the effect on a card but I think it’s pretty cool!
