As You See It Challenge: Love!

This week I’m participating in a new-to-me crafting blog hop, the “As You See It” Challenge. These weekly challenges are meant to inspire creativity and encourage participants to interpret the theme as they wish. Anyone is welcome to participate!

This week’s theme is LOVE! I decided to showcase the card I made for a recent swap, and tell you a little more about it. All the products I used are from the Parisian Beauty Suite in the Stampin’ Up! Spring Mini Catalogue.

With this card, I tried to create the look of the flowers having been pressed in a book, along with other souvenirs that are linked with the love story. The strip of Parisian Blossoms Designer Series Paper, covered in words of love and passion, is like a love letter, while the cardstock, stamped with postage images from the Parisian Beauty stamp set, reminds us of the envelope that the love letter arrived in.

I used the gorgeous Parisian Flourish 3D embossing folder on the black layer to add texture. The flowers are from the Forever Blossoms stamp set, cut out with the Cherry Blossoms dies, and coloured with Blends markers. I added some Champagne Rhinestones to embellish both the sentiment and one of the flowers.

I hope you enjoyed my project! Don’t forget to click on the image below so you can visit the other blogs and see their love-themed projects. If you like my project, you can see the products I used in the shopping list at the bottom of the post.

Happy Stampin’!
