Sending You...


Yep, I am definitely on a Valentine's Day card kick! Since it's "Anything Goes" over at Simon Says Stamp and I was in the mood to make a clean and simple card after seeing the CAS challenge at the Crafter's Cafe blog, I challenged myself to create a single-layer card. I grabbed two Taylored Expressions sets, S.W.A.K. and You're My Type Upper and got stamping.


I started by stamping the darling little mailbox and colored in with Copics. Next, I inked up the "X" and "O" from the alphabet set and stamped some "hugs and kisses" floating from the open box. Finally, I added the perfect sentiment for my very clean, very simple card and I had another V-Day card to add to my growing pile!

BEAN NOTES
Stamps: S.W.A.K. and You're My Type Upper (Taylored Expressions); Cardstock: Choice Snow (TE); Ink: Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko); Coloring Medium: Sketch Markers (Copic)
