January Designer Challenge - Elizabeth Craft Designs

The Elizabeth Craft Designs Designer Challenge for January is "You Fill My Heart", just in time for Valentine's Day!  

I wanted to use this simple thought which says it all....  You're never getting rid of me!  ;-)   I chose delicate colours, I even used the same paper to cut Forever that I used on the background.  A black diecut used as a dropshadow made all the difference!

For today's challenge, Elizabeth Craft Designs will be giving away Gift Card to use on their website to 3 lucky winners.  To enter, simply leave a comment on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Challenge Blog Post!  Good luck! 

Here is how you can make this card.  It's so simple. Choosing the paper is fun!

1.       Form a 6 x 7” side fold card base from pink cardstock.  Cut a green panel measuring 4.75 x 5.5” and a white mat that is about 1/8” larger.  Adhere panels together with Clear Double Sided Adhesive.  Adhere the panels to the card base with foam squares to give some dimension.
2.       Die cut Believe from white cardstock, Forever from green cardstock and the flourished heart from pink cardstock.  Die cut all three dies from black cardstock as well. 
3.       Layer the words together so the black diecut is slightly offset.  Designer tip: make sure each of the black diecuts is offset the same way (distance offset and direction of offset) in each pair of diecuts!  You don’t have to use lots of Glue Dots, just a few placed in the widest parts of the letters.
4.       Use Glue Dots to adhere Believe and Forever to the green panel as shown.  Cut small pieces of the Kool Tak Clear Foam to raise up the heart as shown so it appears to float above.  Voila! You’re done!
5.       Give the card to someone you love!
This would make an wonderful wedding card when done in white!
