Bright Heart Card

Combining challenges can be a creative kick start to a card creation. Today, The Play Date Cafe color challenge meets the Card Positioning Systems sketch challenge. Once you have a color scheme and a sketch. everything else is in the details. This Bright Heart Card features a embossed background enhanced with the sponging technique. This technique comes in handy when I don't have patterned paper with the right colors. I love how this one turned out. Have a happy and crafty Saturday!

Bright Heart Card Supplies:
  • Paper: Lemon yellow cardstock, white cardstock, orange cardstock, and bright pink cardstock.
  • Stamps: Floral Fillers stamp set by Stampin' Up! (retired) and sentiment stamp by Hero Arts.
  • Inks: Pale yellow dye ink, orange dye ink,  and classic stampin' pad in primrose petals (126858).
  • Other Stuff: Fancy fam embossing folder by Stampin' Up! (127751), full heart punch by Stampin' Up!, sponge, glitter button by American Crafts, yellow doodle twine, and stampin' dimensionals.
