I heart U

Happy Saturday! Today I'm sharing this sweet card made with one of my favorite stamp set to be released on August 1, a new font called Framework Alphabet. I simply stamped each letter to fit inside my card design in black ink, except the I and U which were stamped in Ruby and colored in, and the O. I replaced the O with a piece of Base & Bling word accent and a heart hand-cut from the new Red Shimmer trim. 
At the bottom I built stripes from a Chevron Artbooking Overlay that I trimmed apart. I topped those with a washi tape ruffle that I made using the technique I first talked about in this Disney card post. Now I've discovered than instead of using actual rubber bands it's a lot easier to use a double length of the regular old sewing thread that I keep on my table top. I just cut it longer than the washi, sandwich it between two lengths of washi, and scrunch it up to look ruffly! It's still cute but way easier to manage than the rubber band technique.

I know I've been pretty much doing one month long sneak peek, but I'm so excited to be participating in this hop coming up next week to celebrate the actual launch of the Fall catty. I hope you'll join us for all the fun!

What do husbands know, anyway, Katy?! LOL! I'm keeping my chevrons! Wendy, this card is amazing the way you used the letters of the alphabet for your sentiment...so much so that it inspired me to make a version of my own! I hope you go and check it out--thanks for the jumpstart!!! You are the queen of out-of-the-box creativity! :)
