Wow! My first card in a long while that I could not use a background stamp on! I did not realize how addicted to them I am. Ha.
I made this card for our Okinawa Shoebox Swap tomorrow. It was a hard one. We are doing challenges and the choice I picked was LSC55 - "One isn't lonely anymore".
I think this is my favorite card I've made recently. I distressed the pink paper by spraying it on both sides with water. Let it dry and then rubbed the Pixie Pink spot over it to let the creases stand out. Then framed and matted the Hugs & Kisses sentiment. I added a tab and hot pink heart eyelet. I stamped the lips using Pixie Pink and matted it inside w/P.Pink under the circle punch hole. To give the lips some realism I used Crystal Effects to make them have a glossy lip look. You can't really see it with the scan, but they also look puffy due to the CE. I stapled two hot pink XX's above the O cut out to give another mention of hugs and kisses. I think the Okinawa girls are going to like making this card. Hopefully they will give it to their hubbies! I am going to re-make this card and try it with different colors and use a BG this time. LOL. It was too much fun making this one. Thanks for looking!
