Crafter's Companion International Challenge: Love Is In The Air!

Yes, it's February. Time for Hallmark to make their bazillion bucks, and for flowers and chocolate. I make the kids and my husband cards, and decided that this one is meant for the hubs for sure. (I've made more cards than I have loved ones to give them to, so it took a long time to make a choice!) This is the winner, and just happens to be the card that I used for this month's Crafter's Companion international challenge. The theme is "Love Is In The Air," and we want you to be inspired and create something to link up for your chance to win the prize this month, a gift certificate for the Crafter's Companion store. For all of the details and to participate, head to the Crafter's Companion Challenge Blog.

I pulled out Humphrey - Hugs for You, inked it with Memento ink in Tuxedo Black, and colored it up with my Spectrum Noir pens. Since this will accompany a box of chocolates, I thought it was perfect! I added a sentiment from the Angelica & Friends - Angelica stamp set. After adhering the background paper with an adhesive tape pen, I added a pretty crocheted doily and a piece of black polka dot ribbon from my stash (I save every ribbon scrap for cards like this. You can always find the perfect piece for any project!) I decided to adhere the image to the doily using Collall 3D glue. You can give your image dimension without worrying about adhesive squares that just won't stay put on fabric elements. Here, I used a light layer, letting it pop subtly off of the card.

I hope he loves it as much as I do, and I hope you are inspired to play along with us this month at the Crafter's Companion Challenge Blog! Don't forget to head over to the blog to see what the other members of the design team have done. Each week, we share new inspiration from our amazingly talented designers, I hope you have the chance to check in!
