Inspire. Create. Share. February Blog Hop It's A Love Thing

Let's celebrate Valentine's Day with the Inspire. Create. Share February Blog Hop as we showcase the theme, It's a Love Thing. There are so many occasions throughout the year to show some love to the people in our lives. Our wonderful Design Team will be sharing their ideas and projects to help inspire you to create your own beautiful projects to send to the people you care about. 
My card design today is one that could be sent out any time of the year as a way to send some love to someone special. I paired the beautiful Most Adored Specialty Designer Series Paper with the Heartfelt Hexagon Bundle to create a lovely clean and simple card design.  I blended some soft color onto the designer series paper layer to create an ombre effect, using Bubble Bath and Moody Mauve Classic ink pads. I love the subtle gold accents that help step up the design without being to over the top.

To create this pretty card design, I added some Bubble Bath Classic ink to the designer series paper layer using a Blending Brush, blending from the top down to the center. Once I had the color intensity I was looking for, I blended Moody Mauve Classic ink with another Blending Brush, moving from the bottom up to the center, blending the two colors together in the middle to create the ombre look. I gently wiped the designer series paper to remove any ink on the Gold embossed hearts. For the sentiment label, I heat embossed the sentiment with Gold embossing powder onto Basic White cardstock and punched out the sentiment with the coordinating Heartfelt Hexagon Punch. I took a piece of Moody Mauve Textured Ribbon and gently frayed both ends, leaving a section in the middle to apply adhesive to add it to the center of the card front. I added the sentiment label over the top of the ribbon with Stampin' Dimensionals and then added several Moody Mauve hearts punched out with the Bee Builder Punch. To finish off the design, I added several Gold Pearls from the Festive Pearls to coordinate with the rest of the card design. I love how pretty this card looks and how simple it was to create.
