She'd send him pages, written in different colored inks with a few doodles here and there, of her thoughts for that day, of her thoughts of him. He'd send back a card or two, with a simple signature or a few words. Each kind were treasured just the same. Love notes.
I'm back again for World Card Making Day, and this time with a card. I was looking most forward to participating in a few challenges today, and I've been getting to do just that, with my sidekick.
Market Street Stamps is having a Block Party, so I grabbed my trusty Vintage Notepad Background Stamp again and was truly inspired to create a little Love Note, with a sentiment from Celebrate Cake. Oh the possibilities that these two stamps have!
The colors were driven by the gorgeous board over at Jay Gee's Nook. Goodness, it makes me almost want to swoon.
A few notes: The kraft background panel was sprayed with some yellow mist and stamped lightly with the notebook. All edges were inked to soften the look a bit. I folded the piece of lined paper and glued it down in a way that created some dimension. I lined the envelope as well but trimming down another envelope die cut.
