All About Love--Whimsical Wednesdays

Hi, all...

It's time for a Whimsical Designs Design Team post and challenge.  Add your project to the challenge by linking here.  The challenge is to use a heart shape or love sentiment somewhere in your project.

Hope everyone is doing well today.  It's the middle of January already!  Wow!  I actually made this card on December 31, as an anniversary card for my DH.  He is an incredible human being, and I have loved him for over half my life.  Hard to believe that much time has gone by.  

It is my first attempt at a tri-fold card, and while it is not my best work ever, the sentiments are perfect and he loved it anyhow.  :)  

On the front, I made some little ticket shapes from copper cardstock and hand wrote the number of years, days, hours, and minutes we have been together.  Then I used the two heart stamps from the Whimsical Designs "With Love" stamp set to add an accent.  I colored the stamps with my SU markers and then cut them out by hand.  I love these stamps! I also added some twine and some eyelets to tie the card together.

On the inner fold, I adhered a frosted vellum cut of a champagne glass with some Elmer's pop up glue dots.  The cut was a New Year's Eve freebie from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.  I used Sure Cuts A Lot to cut it out.  I colored the champagne with a SU marker, then added some rhinestones for bubbles.  The picture of this is fuzzy, but it looks neat on the actual card.

Finally, I stamped the sentiment, again from the Whimsical Designs "With Love" set.  And I added the butterflies from the Whimsical Designs "Whimsical Fun: Volume 1" set.  Here is a closeup.

Again, this was colored with my SU marker, then stamped directly onto the card.  All of the Whimsical Designs sets are available for purchase here.  

And if you're lovin' all this love, we've got more for you on February 1-3, when we will have our first blog hop of the new design team cycle...with lots of blog candy and lots of inspiration!
