Today's card is another card in my Love card series. This time, I'm using Mama Elephant's Love from Above stamp set. This cute stamp set features some Cupids, along with sweet sentiments and cute mini details like flowers, hearts and arrows.
I wanted to play around with circle shapes with this card, so I die-cut a few stitched circles of varying sizes. I used white cardstock, since it seemed like a good neutral. I also cut a stitched banner for my sentiment- which I stamped in pink.
I stamped the bow-aiming Cupid onto some marker paper and colored him in with Copics. I kept the coloring super simple, since it's such a a small image. I then cut him out with a pair of sharp scissors, leaving a small white border.
I found a piece of patterned paper that looked very pretty, so I matted a pink top-folding A2 card base (4¼x5½") with it. I arranged my circles, making sure some of them overlapped. I adhered everything together, using a combination of my tape adhesive and foam squares.
As a last touch, I added a wood enamel button, a die-cut heart from the same patterned paper and scattered around a few enamel dots.
Thanks for reading!
P.S. I am setting this post to auto-post for me, as I'm a bit busy with a few things at the moment.
