Wooden Heart


Good morning all. 

 It's the start of Sale-a-Bration today.  Free stamps anyone?  Have a look at the brochure on my side bar or at the bottom of this post.  There are 4 lovely stamp sets to choose from and a set of beautiful designer series papers.  Best time to order Stampin' Up! is now.  Sale-A-Bration runs until the 31.3.12.  But before you dash off to look at the free stamps, here's how I made my card for today. 

I had such fun playing with this combo of colours that I've used it again today. Early Espresso card base and a panel of Riding Hood Red stamped with the Woodgrain stamp in Early Espresso.  The main panel is Very Vanilla mounted onto Early Espresso then mounted onto Blushing Bride.  The heart is from I {heart} hearts in Riding Hood Red.  I chose the heart shape with the woodgrain to match the larger panel.  

To finish off I added a strip of Early Espresso punched at one end with a square punch.  You just insert it into one corner.  I attached a Real Red button with some linen thread knotted through it.  I stamped Love from Pennant Parade in Whisper White.  

Here's how I decorated the inside.


The sentiment on the inside is from Delightful Dozen




I followed the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and as I've used the same colours as yesterday I'm also going to put it into The Friday Mashup as well.


Edit:  Woops missed the dead line for Freshly made Sketches but never mind it was fun playing along with the sketch anyway! 




Fancy a look at those free stamp sets now?
