Just a Love Note

TheCue Card this week at CASology is PAPER...
I thought of die cut flowers from newspaper, then tried making a flower with some paper twine I got on sale at Target the other day...neither seemed "right" for the challenge.  THEN...I remembered that I had purchased a notebook paper stamp from Verve a long time ago...had to go searching my craft room 3 times over before I realized I had already put it in a jewel case and labeled it...go figure...I amaze myself at my organization sometimes...just wish I had the memory to match:)!!  SO...I made my notebook paper, and couldn't figure what to do with it.  Tried it on a white card, red card, then with strips of paper, oh my...nothing seemed just right, but it popped on a black card, although, by itself...it just seemed a little lost!  I love white space(in this case black), but the one piece of notebook paper looked too lonely. You know what they say about 3's...so I thought to make a couple other pieces of notebook paper, left them blank,  and put them behind the main piece.  This is what I finally settled on...oh my the process of card making, sometimes:)!!...
I started by stamping the heart on a piece of white paper.  I then made a mask and covered the heart and stamped the notebook paper over the masked heart.  I then masked the sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp set of the same name, and stamped the "JUST A NOTE" in black and then the "love" in pale tomato like the heart, clear embossing both.  I cut out the notebook paper and punched the holes out with a tiny hole punch.  Popped up just the main paper, the other two are simply adhered to the card.  Here's a close up of the heart and sentiment...
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  4. Hi Lisa, Your crafting process description sounds all too common to me!! I sometimes wonder why such a simple card takes me so long to figure but I guess it's the process that's the creative part!!
    The notebook pages do look awesome on the black, what a fun idea for the paper challenge :0)
