Softness and subtlety.
This card was inspired by this pin on the Pinterest board for this week's IC553 at Splitcoast. Here's the inspiration photo:
Note that the black backdrop in the photo adds drama, but I wanted to combine the lightness and calm of yesterday's photo (below) with the texture and sentiment of today's inspiration photo and see what happened.
EEEEP! I'm happy with the results. After all, I'm giving this card to my husband, and after 30 years of marriage, we've learned that drama is over-rated and lots of love creates peace and harmony. (Well, most of the time!)
I continued the theme on the inside with a strip explaining the pile of love on the front.
I used the StampinUp Rotary Alphabet stamp and some light-weight card stock to make tearing easier. To give the card more texture, I used a glue pen to add glue only to the centers of the torn strips. That way, the edges stay wavy.
See what I mean about getting wildly different looks from black and white?
