L.O.V.E.

IMG_4979LOVE

What a fun way to say I Love You! Designer Corri Garza combined a bright fun color scheme – pink, white and black – with some trendy embellishments to send her message. Sometimes you don’t need a whole sentiment to get a message across. On this card, one single word says everything necessary!

The three pearls on the top left help, although small, balance out the visual weight of the Scrabble tiles on the lower right. And repeated elements can help tie a design together – the lace echoes the scallop around the heart die cut.

Supplies |  Cardstock: Recollections by Michaels. Patterned Paper: Pink Paislee (Secret Crush). Ink: Ranger TIm Holtz Distress (Worn Lipstick, Soot). Pearls: Kaisercraft. Cut File: Lori Whitlock (Scallop Heart). Other: lace & Scrabble tiles (unknown).

Designer: Corri Garza

Corri began paper crafting in 2009 when she purchased a Cricut at a Black Friday sale. She started following some blogs and immediately fell in love with card making. Recently, she added a Silhouette Cameo to her craft room and she loves working with die cuts to create cards, gift boxes and altered items. Corri lives just outside San Antonio, Texas with her husband and three kids. When she’s not in her craft room, she is watching her twins playing sports. They are involved in volleyball, baseball and softball, so there is always a game to watch!  Corri also enjoys photography, especially taking nature photos.

Christmas Is In Your Heart

I made a few single-layer cards in 2011 to send to my husband because of the rules where he was housed then. Creating single layer cards is a special art, because it requires layering techniques with color mediums. You have to gauge things like how translucent different colors and different mediums will be when layered.
