This is my entry for this week's Wednesday Sketch Challenge over at The Outlawz.
I loved the color challenge this week so much, that I decided to use the same colors for my sketch challenge. This card was cut using my Silhouette Cameo and a cut file from Silhouette's online store. This is called a corner pocket card. The heart gives the appearance of 3 layers, but is actually cut along with the card and folded up. I then took the 2 middle hearts and removed the rest of the cut and recut those with tan and white card stock to add dimension and color. I mounted 3 strips of tan card stock on white card stock and then added rub-ons from Stampin' Up! The rub-ons were originally horizontal, so I cut each letter separately, so I could get the vertical greeting and the x's and o's. Each piece was very small, so I figured out quickly that a piece of removal tape would hold the piece in place while I burnished it. That worked out perfectly. I also placed a strip of white card stock, embossed with Swiss dots and mounted on tan card stock underneath the 3 strips. I also put a rub-on sentiment on the curve of the heart. It's hard to read, but it says "With All My Heart." I added a resin flourish on the left side, a clear heart gem in the center of the heart pocket, and a round clear gem in the dip of the heart pocket. I used 3 pearl hearts on the strips and a clear round gem between the x's and o's.
