Me and You Forever

This card is for two challenges ... first, CAS-ual Friday's CFC60 - use text --- and also for SCS Featured Stamper (FS283 - swldebbie).  Debbie has a lovely clean and classic style and I really enjoyed looking through her gallery.  I chose this card of Debbie's to CASE in her honor, using several different elements from Debbie's card, but achieving (I hope) the same overall romantic and vintage look.  Hope you like ... and hope Debbie likes too!!

"Me and You Forever"

Stamps:  Me & You (Heidi Grace); forever (Fiskars)
Paper:  White (C.C. Designs); Generations DP (Simple Stories)
Ink:  Early Espresso, River Rock (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Lacy Squares Nestabilities die-cut (Spellbinders), sponge, adhesives

I ran the largest Lacy Squares die-cut through the Big Shot with the card base, making sure the fold at the top of the card was below the top cuts.  I ran it through again with another piece of white cardstock (this will be the card front).

I stamped the two sentiments onto the patterned paper, coloring in the Me & You stamp with a River Rock Stampin' Write marker.  I lightly sponged Early Espresso ink around the edges and then adhered it to the card front.

Quick and easy card ... the beautiful designer paper from Simple Stories did most of the work! :)


One other thing of my cards made it into the "Crafty Picks" for this week on Tiffany Bauer's "My Crafty World" Blog.  Thank you, Tiffany!!
