From My Heart To Yours - Quick Quotes
Happy Valentine's Day! I'm so excited to share my first project for Quick Quotes! The Quick Quotes Design Team is sharing Valentine's Day cards on the Quick Quotes Blog today.
I started my creative process by selecting a sentiment from the Quick Quotes Sentiments Bundle. I was drawn to the color palette and message on this card and chose this piece as my starting point. I then picked several coordinating patterned papers from Quick Quotes collections, including Cracklin' Rose, Just Because, Stowaway and Summer Breeze. I also chose a beautiful die cut chipboard piece and several shades of Powder Puff ink. I highlighted the letters in the word "Heart" with Glossy Accents to add some shine and dimension.
I added a rhinestone to this heart that I cut from a piece of patterned paper and some ribbon from my personal stash to finish the card.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! If you're not familiar with Quick Quotes products, stop by the Quick Quotes Store and check them out! There is a Non-Traditional Valentine Card/Tag Challenge on the Quick Quotes Blog that runs until February 25th. The prize is a $25 QQ Gift Card! You DO NOT have to use Quick Quotes products to play along so this is a great opportunity to win some fabulous crafty supplies.
