Who I Am

Hi friends! I can't believe another week has gone by! I still haven't had any new time in the studio, but that's because I've been designing stamps. {grin} So I'm just popping in to change up the scenery to this card I made a few weeks back for Verve's release.

This is another one of the cards made on my clean & {sort of} simple kick.  I'm just loving white space lately.  The sentiment from Stronger Love inspired me to keep things a bit on the masculine side for a just because card for Mark.  We've had an extremely rough 6 months adjusting to life with difficult infant twins, a new house, a new job and basically nothing familiar in our lives but each other.  He's been such a support to me, but some days I can just tell he needs a little pick me up, so that was the inspiration for this card.  I fussy cut around the sentiment, "I love you not because of who you are, but because of who I am when I am with you" and highlighted the scripted letters with a distress ink marker.  The scroll is stamped with the Scroll Plain Jane and cut with the Scroll Die and I added some of the heart trails from Stronger Love, then stamped, colored and cut out the hearts to pop up over the scroll.  The three little pennants are made by layering the tails of the Arrow Die over the Pennant Trim Die for a perfect mat.  The main layer is embossed with a striped embossing folder and I added some Tim Holtz film strip ribbon, some back twill and a Tim Holtz metal charm as accents.  Although you can't tell in the photo, the charm says JOURNEY, and seemed like the perfect embellishment for the occasion.

I hope you have a fantastic day as we head into the weekend!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
