Bugs and Kisses!!


I am just getting started with the stamping today. I designed this card for the Valentine class I am hosting on Friday. It has a matching sucker but it wouldn't photograph (I will attempt to photograph it later in the day when my patience comes back lol)

Here are the card details...
Stamp Set: Bugs and Kisses (this is newer set for me and my first card created with this set)
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose, Whisper White
Other: White Narrow Organdy Ribbon, Rose Grosgrain Ribbon, Silver Cording

I used faux paper piercing around the edges of the bug image and along the top and bottom of the regal rose strip. I drew in the circles along the top and bottom of the card using chocolate chip marker and the 1/8" hole from the piercing template. I drew in four faux eyelets using the same 1/8" hole template and a chocolate chip marker and filled in the center with the white gel pen. I used the large oval punch for the greeting, I added some color to the edges by dragging the paper around the tip of the marker.

I would love to hear your thoughts on this card... I am considering submitting it for a contest. Thanks for looking.
