Mixing and Kissing!

 Hello! Today's card uses three sets:   Lots of Letters,  Stamp it BIG from Carolyn King, and Simple Hearts from Tami Mayberry. Don't they work well together? I really like how you can spell out some different beginnings or endings for the BIG greetings of Carolyn's with Lots of Letters
 I kissed her small polka dot pattern from Stamp it BIG onto the bold border from Lots of Letters in Memento Lady Bug ink, re-inking each time.  Isn't that fun to give this bold border any pattern you want? I love how delicate this pattern is.  After stamping the border, I added the letters (one letter actually fell of the block as I was stamping so I had to make them all at slightly wonky angles to match!)  and then the THANKS and "I love you" around it in Memento Tuxedo Black.  I stamped Tami's hearts image and cut out to pop up at the top left and then used some Gina K Bowl of Cherries buttons and red bakers twine to finish the card. (Oh, that button on the right is covering a black smudge, hee!) Cardstock is Pure Luxury White and Black onyx.




Thanks for visiting me today!  It's almost the weekend, woo hoo!

Love the big sentiment and really love how you have tied the two hearts together with the sweet button.

Your card is lovely. Seeing how the various sets work together is so inspiring. Thanks for sharing how you compensated when the letter slipped and also how you covered up the little smudge.
