Love Inspiration......

Today's card was made with  love.....
Update...I am super excited to be given 'An Inspiring Stand out' at 
'Inspired by All The Little Things Challenge'...Thank you so much xx
When I saw the inspiration photo at Inspired by all The Little Things 
I immediately thought of a stamp that I had for ages and never used...
I know my interpretation is very literal but just had to run with it....
The stacked wood stamp was stamped and then water coloured.
The LOVE has been stenciled with black paste and hi-lighted with gold paint.
The heart has been die cut and glossy accents added with gold hi-lights.
The white is painted on and the die cut snowflake painted with pearl paint.

This is not a good photo but I wanted to show the background 
corrugated card a little better.
The CS was stamped with a wood stamp image and then run through a crimper
.....which I had never used before, to give the effect of corrugated card.
It gives a fun texture...thank you to Nancy's DT card at CAS Mix Up.

To keep my card CAS it became tall and narrow,
so I will be linking up my card to AAA Cards - CAS-Shape Your Love Challenge
and
I have used stamping, corrugated card, stenciling and die cutting
and
Inspired by all The Little Things - Inspiration Photo
Update...I am super excited to be given 'An Inspiring Stand out' at 
'Inspired by All The Little Things Challenge'...Thank you so much xx
and

  15. A gorgeous card Mac and I wood stack looks great. I like the use of layers and the tag too. The letters stand out beautifully and the touch of red looks superb. I think this would make a great Valentine's Day card for a guy, minus the snowflake of course. Crafty hugs, Sandra x
