Hi friends! It's the beginning of a brand-new week and that means it's time for a new Mojo Monday sketch. It's probably just a lack of time and loving the feeling of accomplishment I get from a quick crafting session, but I've really been drawn to simpler layouts lately. So this week's sketch has super clean lines and is a super go-to kind of layout.
My card uses leftovers from my Diva Inspirations Hop card. My absolute favorite candy is the heart shaped cherry Charms suckers that only come out at Valentine's. I just love them and get a little bit giddy when I find them in a store. (They're a lot harder to find than they used to be!) So that was the inspiration I started with for my card. I had previously cut a heart from book paper with the Wavy Hearts Die Set and it didn't get used, so I pulled it out, scraped it with a little gesso and stamped the heart from Chevron Love with worn lipstick distress ink. I then glued it to a cardstock cutout of the same heart to give it a bit of thickness, then sponged the edges with worn lipstick distress ink. The word LOVE was stamped by masking off the upper and lower sections of the with love from me to you stamp. I added in some highlights with a white gel pen.
I added a little bow to my balloon with some silver cording, then added three scored lines to my white panel, since I didn't think it needed anything else after all that sparkle!
That's all from me today! I hope you have a fantastic start to your Valentine's week!
