This was another experiment card when I was trying to come up with a design for a swap I was in. I thought it would be easier only using Real Red and Whisper White, so that's what I used for all of these.
Today's card uses products from the Occasions Mini Catalog. The kids and bike image is from Take It To Heart and reminds me of growing up in our cul-de-sac neighborhood where we gave each other rides on our bikes like this. But I wasn't sure I wanted to take the time to color the image with markers, so I just stamped it in red. I cut it out right on the line, then layered it on a heart cut with the Heart Framelits. The banner was also stamped and cut out. The greeting is from Loving Thoughts. I also used the heart embossing folder from Adorning Accents and the Adorning Accents Edgelits Die. I wasn't sure about these when I first tried using them, but they had a booth at Leadership where we could try them out. They suggested using post-it notes to hold the edgelit to the card stock so it can't move. Works perfectly!
I actually didn't finish this card until I came back from Leadership. I had a bunch of pieces and parts that I was trying together, but nothing looked right. After being around so many talented stampers and seeing their swaps and the displays from Stampin' Up!, I felt inspired and came up with more ideas! That's one of the things I love about Stampin' Up! events!
