Valentine's Card and a Sketch Challenge

 Spent a snowy day here doing some Valentine's Day crafting. I worked on some cards that I will share with you today as well as treat boxes that I will be sharing in an upcoming post. I used papers from the current Perfect Match special from Close To My Heart along with stamps from the February Stamp of the Month - Doodled Borders and the Months of the Year February sets.

The inspiration for the card came from the current card sketch challenge from Freshly Made Sketches.

You can see this sketch along with others here.

To make this card, I cut a 3 1/2" circle from some scrap cardstock and traced around it on my card base using a pencil. I adhered a 3" circle cut from the Perfect Match paper inside the circle. I then used the dotted border stamp from the Stamp of the Month to stamp the border along the pencil line in Candy Apple Exclusive Inks.

A tip for shaping a line stamp into a circle or other shape is to place the shape guide against your stamp block and then align the stamp along the edge of the shape guide. I did this with the dotted border stamp and used the circle I traced as a guide. I then stamped the border and erased the pencil line when the ink was dry.

I die cut some hearts and then adhered them along the dotted circle line. I added 3-D Foam Tape to some to add dimension.

I hope you liked the card. Thanks for stopping by!
