i {heart} u

I've been participating in this year's Camp Scrap the past few weeks. The prompt for the second week of camp was "monochromatic." I decided to create a love-themed card for my final shipment to Operation Write Home.

I started by choosing one of the greetings in Hero Arts' "Words of Love" digital set. Using Photoshop, I changed the colors of the "i" & "u" to a dark magenta, and the heart to pink, then printed it on a piece of white cardstock. I decided to use Operation Write Home's Sketch #259 for my design.

The patterned paper I chose (from my scrap stash) was not quite tall enough to work for the large panel in the sketch. So I cut an extra, 1/4" wide strip of burgundy cardstock to go along the top of my card. Even though the sketch did not call for the focal panel to be matted, I decided to use a narrow burgundy mat, just to set the greeting apart from the patterned paper better. After cutting my pieces, I matted the greeting, and adhered everything to a white A2 card base. And that finished this CAS card. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy! :)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

A Blog Named Hero "Make the Sentiment the Star"
a2z Scrapbooking "CAS"


  1. Love your ombré sentiment that perfectly matches your background! So pretty! Thanks for playing with us over at A Blog Named Hero!!

  2. Great colours, love that you used burgundy with the red. I cased your card and made it with hot pink and charcoal.


I love to hear your thoughts on my work, so feel free to speak your mind!
