To My Love

Hi, Janja here!

This is my first post in the new year. Let's start with love.
I prepared two Valentines cards, and combined on them several dies from various releases.

- CottageCutz dies: Baby Dolls, Baby Doll Girl Clothes, Love Postage, Love Bow & Arrow, English Rose Corner, Square Set, Nested Stitched Scallop Square Set
- red card base: 4.25 x 5.5" (10,7 x 13,9 cm)
- white scalloped edge card base: 5 x 5" (12,7 x 12,7 cm)
- white card stock: 3.74 x 5" (9,5 x 12,6 cm)
- red card stock: 4 x 4" (10 x 10 cm)
- wite and colored card stock
- self adhesive pads, double-sided adhesive tape
- Distress ink pad - Tattered Rose
- Memento ink pad - London Fog

Prepare a red card base, and stamp an inscription on a white card stock.

Cut the word love and a couple of hearts.

With two dies cut all the pieces we need to form a girl. Use socks for the shoes, and shorten them with scissors.
When assembling, slightly change the position of arms and legs.

Spray gray dots on a white card stock, and fasten a girl with self-adhesive pads. For more depth, add a gray color with a makeup brush. These brushes are very useful for such things, especially if the subject is slightly raised from the substrate.

Completed card.

The second card is made with English Rose Corner die. Cut three times. On the backside of a white piece attach adhesive tape, and insert an individual pieces.

From a white card stock cut a square and a frame with the largest die from both sets. Add an inscription.

Complete the card.

Enjoy and have fun while creating.

Awesome cards! You have a great eye for composition and colors. I enjoy how you made the baby girl have a more mature look. Thanks for the tip on using a makeup brush to add some shadow around elements. -Janet
