Stuck on U Sketches Design Team Post - "Love" Card

This week at Stuck on U Sketches our theme is Love! I recently purchased the Cricut Carousel cartridge and have fallen in love with the font feature. It's very versatile but to me it has a definite vintage, whimsical, summery vibe to it and I really wanted to highlight that. All of the designer paper used on this card came from the Imagine More cartridge; the distressed, handmade feel of these designs worked perfectly for this project. 

This is a standard 5"x5" card. Each of the letters were cut from the Cricut Carousel cartridge at 2.3"; the scalloped heart and the regular heart were both cut from the Imagine Stock images at 2.3" and 1.8" respectively. 

 I used the Fiskars Threading Water Border Punch to create an accent piece and wrapped it with The Twinery's Honeydew Twine.

Each of the cuts were inked and popped up on foam for added dimension. 

Finally, I added a button and a small twine bow. 

Products used:
Cricut cartridges: Carousel and Imagine More
Fiskars Threading Water Border Punch
The Twinery Honeydew Twine
Paper: Recollections cardstock
