I created this card for Sunday’s Featured Stamper Challenge. Neva McMullen was the featured stamper last week. I picked this gorgeous card of hers to case. I love the flowers inside the heart and the trim on the bottom of the card. I combined this challenge with last week Mojo Monday challenge for the layout, with CR84FN for the colors and the Stamptacular Sunday challenge for the sentiment inspiration.

A 4 3/4″ long strip of Kraft cardstock was cut and embossed with Fair Isle Borderabilities and stitched to a 2″ x 4 3/4″ piece of For the Record Echo Park paper. Both strips were adhered to a 4 3/4″ square of October Afternoon Farm Fresh Paper. The layers were stitched to a 5″ square of Kraft cardstock. The bottom had been cut and embossed with the other Fair Isle Borderabilities die and the edges were sponged with Frayed Burlap Distress ink.

Solar White cardstock was cut and embossed with Lacey Circle Nestabilities die and topped with a piece of Cosmo Cricket Everafter paper, that had been cut and embossed with Classic Circle Nestabilities. The edges of the paper circle were paper pierced. May Arts Silk Ribbon was tied vertically around the layers and the circle was adhered under the bow.

Solar White cardstock was cut and embossed with the Classic Heart Nestabilities, sponged with Frayed Burlap ink and adhered to a piece of Kraft cardstock, cut and embossed with the Scallop Heart Nestabilities, that had been sponged with the same ink as well. The edges of the heart were also paper pierced. The bottom of the heart was stamped with an image from Verve Stamps Fabulous You set in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink.  Before the heart was adhered to the layers with dimensionals, part of a doily was taped to the lower right hand side of the heart.

The sentiment is also from Fabulous You. It was also stamped in Rich Memento Ink on a piece of Solar White cardstock cut and embossed with on of the Tag Trio dies. The tag was also sponged with Frayed Burlap ink and attached to the bow with iridescent May Arts Curling ribbon. Three Recollections flowers on the lower right of the heart finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
