I don’t normally make Valentine’s Day cards…..it’s more of a Hallmark holiday to me than anything else, but I had these few things on my desk that have been sitting there forever and I was resolved to use them….one was this dotted paper from Stampin Up that I’ve had for years, and the other was the brick wall die cut that was given to me in a swap and lastly was this quote from my favorite musical. I wondered how I could bring the three of them together. I love a good scrapping challenge!
I took the dotted paper and inked it with some distress oxide inks in Spun Sugar, Abandoned Coral and Aged Mahogany. I added some water sprinkles, just for an extra layer of interest. I then put the brick wall die cut over top of that. Then it was just a matter of adding a couple different hearts from my stash (I love that foil one) and some enamel dots. The sentiment is from the Ink Road’s Subway Art Lover’s Movie Quotes. I love this stamp set! I am a big movie buff and it has some of my favorite lines and I really enjoy trying to fit them into different card styles! As I said, this particular quote is from my all time favorite musical The Phantom of the Opera!!!
I really like how this turned out.
