Sending lots of love!

I'm back today to share one last card for the month. I originally made this card to share prior to Valentine's Day...but it never actually got posted!

No worries though, I can always share it now!
I wanted to make a Valentine's card that used non-traditional colors rather than the whole white, pink, and red that we are accustomed to. I created the base of the card with the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle die. After die-cutting it, I just adhered it to a standard A2 sized card base.
The other die-cuts and stamp are all Simon Says Stamp exclusives.

For My Favorite Gamer!

Good morning! Once again, it seems like it's been forever since I posted last! But I'm here today sharing a super special birthday card. 

My oldest kiddo turns 15 today!
Damien is a die-hard gamer and upcoming YouTuber. :) So when I saw the Level up stamp set and Game Controller die over at My Favorite Things, I had to have it just for this card! I created the base with some of the rectangles from the Simon Says Stamps new In Stitches die collection.
I die-cut several of the controllers out in order to give the die a little bit of dimension. I added some black hemp twine for the cord (even though he has wireless controllers, oops!) and then some glossy accents onto the colored buttons. It's a simple, clean cut layout for a birthday card, but I think it turned out great!
