FSS- Love you this much!

Hello and Happy Saturday!

I am on the Fresh Squeezed Stamps blog today with a double-header, two sweet cards for the little loves in your life! I am still thinking about Valentine's Day and this time I wanted to create a card that would work for the kids.  I hit upon a design that will work well for both boys and girls by just swapping out some colors and patterns.

Since I have daughters, I started first with the girly palette.

I was inspired by the I Love You This Much sentiment from Love Signs and in thinking about things that are vast, (to represent a large amount of love), I hit upon the idea of the ocean and combined a few of my favorite FSS stamps to make this scene.  

First I stamped the sentiment from Love Signs and the whale from Breath of Fresh Flair on a white cardstock.  I masked the whale and used the scalloped border stamp from Background Check to create the water and waves.   Lastly, I stamped and masked the cloud and sun from Weather Through.  I rounded the corners and adhered the stamped panel to a pink cardstock base that I covered with some fun polka dot patterned paper. 

By swapping out some ink colors and the patterned paper, here's the same card in a more boy-friendly color scheme.   I think this one will go to my nephews.  

That's all for me today!  Thanks so much for stopping by!


Your thoughts mean so much to me. Thank you so much for taking the time to let me know you stopped by!
