#the100dayproject : handmade card 84/100-2 : love you

today's card might be a little unexpected - the inspiration wheel landed on seasonal! i decided to skip christmas and new years since we're already well underway in the winter season, so the next logical choice is valentine's day!

i know. i know. it's crazy - it seems like two months away is so far away, but i swear it'll be here faster than we know it. and also, a good love themed card can always be good to have on hand. right? right. [and also, i make the rules.]

 A bright red card front features a good amount of negative "white" space above the stamped sentiment Love You ||| Truly. Madly. Deeply. The sentiment is stamped in black ink. There are two tone-on-tone red hearts floating up towards the right from the sentiment. On the right side, a thin strip of patterned paper is full of overlapping, colorful hearts in an assortment of sizes. The red panel is elevated off of the hot pink card base with foam tape for added dimension. A bright pink envelope is also pictured, and is included with this card.

while the design is super simple, i am loving it! the card base is the same color as the bright pink envelope. on the right side of the card front, a thin vertical strip of patterned paper features overlapping hearts in an assortment of colors and sizes. the paper is from doodlebug and you know that it's one of my favorites! 

the red panel is elevated off of the card base with foam tape, so it's slightly dimensional. [that's what is causing the slight shadow on the left side.]

 An angled view of the details on the card front, you can see the stamped sentiment which reads "Love You ||| Truly. Madly. Deeply." On the right side of the card front is a narrow strip of patterned paper with overlapping hearts in an assortment of sizes and colors.

stamped in black ink is the sentiment which is perfect for any and everyday as well as for valentine's day! it reads "love you || truly. madly. deeply." and is accented by a duo of hearts. the hearts are tone-on-tone red so they are subtle but coordinate nicely with the hearts on the patterned paper on the right side. 

i really like how simple this card is - and the design just works in my opinion. sometimes i think small patterns can easily overwhelm a card, but this small strip adds a splash of detail without being too busy. the sentiment is from a set that has a variety of sentiments perfect for all occasions and each time i make a card with a stamp like this i just want to make a whole big batch or create a set.

The flat-lay card featuring the stamped sentiment, "Love You || Truly. Madly. Deeply." which is stamped in black ink near the bottom of the card front. Two red tone-on-tone hearts accent the sentiment and are located next to a narrow vertical strip of patterned paper with hearts in a variety of sizes and colors.

sooo, that might just have to happen. what do you think - do you prefer one individual card or a series or set that all work together?

i just like looking at this - it makes me so happy! [the fact that valentine's day is less than two months away - not so much, but oh well!] next year is bound to be better than 2020, right? who's with me?
