I used a card sketch for this card and was very pleased with how it turned out.
Paper: white card blank, red and white cardstock, The Paper Company; dp from Valentine cardkit purchase at JoAnn's a few years ago.
Stamp: heart tree, Hero Arts; sentiment 1John 4:19, Inkadinkado
Ink: basic black
Tools: Heart embossing folder by Cuttlebug; large circle die, Sizzix; corner rounder, EK Success
Embellishments: red grosgrain ribbon, SU, red stickles
Techniques: watercolored the hearts on tree different shades of pinks and reds and randomly covered some with stickles. I also used a stippling brush and pounced red ink on white card background.
I really like this card and think the sentiment is very appropriate. We love because He first loved us.
Enjoy and have a Blessed day.
