5 Ingredients for a Card

Hello friends!

I am popping in to share a card idea that was swimming in my head.
By using 5 ingredients, I came up with this colorful love-themed card.

My idea was to "mix up the alphabet dies" and create my own sentiment.
I strongly encourage you to do that if you have various sets or sizes of alphabet dies or stamps.
This is where your originality comes through!

There are 5 basic ingredients in this card as I break down the process in 5 steps.
love you

1. Dies:  Mega Alphabet Dies is, well, tremendously helpful when it comes to home decor or designs with bold sentiment. I use just the Mega L Alphabet Die here.

2. Stamps: I stamped Floral Alphabet Stamps ( Dies)
on the pattern paper. Since the paper surface is a bit slick, I also clear-embossed the alphabet.
love you-002

3. pattern paper: Enchanting Washes Paper Pad has some really beautiful and vibrant paper. 
The letter "L" and "ove" are all die cut from that paper collection. 
love you-001

 4. Washi Tape: The Painted Fantasy Washi Tape goes perfectly well with Enchanting Washes Paper Pad . I also added Golden Edge for that extra Wow factor. 
love you-003

5.  embossing powder: Clear and white embossing ink were used (see links below). The whit-embossed "you" is from Sweetest Peas. is having a card-making sale.
Shop Altenew Floral Alphabet Stamp Set here and die set here

I hope that you find today's post inspiring and perhaps it makes you want to create something with 5 ingredients? If you do, please link it up to my "show & Share" (see top right side bar). I'd love to see what you create! 

Thanks for stopping by!

What a great idea to combine the floral alphabet and the mega die. The patterned paper is really pretty and makes for a great card. I have been looking at the Altenew alphabet dies, but so far have not decided which one to get.

This is really pretty Virginia, I love how you used these two alpha sets together and the colour combo on this card is phenomenal, ♥ it!

Saw this on IG last night and actually gasped. What a unique and fun design. Love the mix of alpha die but adore how you arranged them with the washi and patterned paper. This is just plain brilliant.

A truly inventive use of dies, stamps, washi tape!
