I was planning on a using Call on the Lord for a bible journaling page, but I got inspired by a song. "I just called to say I love you" by Stevie Wonder kept popping in my head, so that's what I went with. I stamped and cut the phone to lay it on the card to get proper spacing for the sentiment. I did use a ruler and drew a faint line to stamp the letters in called, but for the rest I just carefully eyeballed them when stamping.
I decided to added some hearts from Love Languages set using Worn Lipstick distress ink for a tone on tone look. Adhered the panels to the cardbase and popped the phone up on some foam adhesive. To finish the card I then stamped the I love you sentiment and hearts from Love Languages on the inside.
On to card number two! This one took more time, since there was a lot of ink blending involved. I used distress ink to create a red to purple blend on a cardstock panel. Once the ink was dry, I used four stamps from the Valentine Background builder with VersaMark and clear embossing powder to create a heat embossed background. This creates an ink resist area, so when I added the black ink over the embossed areas the original color still shows, this is called the Joseph's Coat technique.
For the sentiment I used I love you once again from Love Languages to stamp and heat emboss on a piece of vellum. I then wrapped the vellum around my panel. The panel was then adhered to the card base and I added some Nuvo dots to finish the card.
Until next time, Monica
