It's been a little while since I made these cards. I just came across the pictures so I thought I'd share them.
I created this card set for my Mother-in-Laws birthday in October. My MIL is deaf and loves anything that features the "ILY" or "I Love You" sign and I came across this Stampin' Up stamp set called "I LoveYou" at a re-sale event this summer and I knew they'd be perfect. :)
These little bottom opening note cards are 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" and the base is Kraft card stock. The layers measure 4" x 4" (black), 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" (dark red) and 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" (white). I've also included these little red hearts (1/2" from Plantin Schoolbook) accented with three layers of Glossy Accents. I stamped the ILY hand using Tuxedo Black Memento ink.
I used a Scrappy Mom sentiment stamp on the inside and added another adorable heart. The watermarked stamps in the background were created using Dazzle Versamark ink. No heat embossing required, just stamp and let it dry. I love the look on the Kraft colored card stock too.
I went ahead and added another ILY stamp to the matching envelopes too. I packaged up 20 of these in a matching box. My MIL loved them!
Here is an image of the stamp set. Like I said I picked it up at a resale event (for $2) so I don't know exactly how old they are or if they are still available.
A little about my love story: A friend of mine from work introduced my
husband and I. My friend had no idea that I took extensive
sign language classes in High School or that my husband's parents
were deaf... I guess it was just meant to be.
And being the only Daughter-in-Law that can sign,
of course I am the favorite. Can you say "bonus points"? :)
