Calypso Poppy Love

Hi friends!  Happy Tuesday!  I'm here changing up the scenery again with this card I made for the last release but hadn't shared here yet.  It features the new You and I set and the coordinating I Heart U Die Set.

I wanted a graphic look to go with the big bold letters, so I pulled out some texty designer papers, then added some distressing around the edges.  For that worn look, I took a piece of washi tape and stuck it down, then pulled it off repeatedly to reveal the white core of the pattern paper.  The heart, and the letters i and u from the You and I set were stamped, then cut out with the I Heart U Die Set.  I stamped the words love and You in the heart and on the letter u respectively, then added some bling to the i, some ruffled ribbon and a scallop border.

I can't believe August is almost over!  Our Anni-VERVE-sary sale ends tomorrow, so if you haven't had a chance to pick up our new releases or any of our older sets during the sale, time is ticking away.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you have a fabulously creative day.
