Since Valentine's Day products and projects are showing up around blog land - I thought it would be adorable to make to dolphins in love :) That is why I've named this card dolpIN LOVE. Maybe cheesy - maybe I am reachin' there a bit on the title - but at least the card came out cute! I used "Critters in the Sea" and did some reverse stamping. Reverse stamping can be tricky, but if you practice on it - you will get a pretty good stamped image. That is why I like doing this technique with Lawn Fawn stamps because their images have a thicker outline.
I used the "swirls" Cuttlebug folder and did heat emboss some waves of water in blue embossing powder. I made my hoops from a 1 3/8' circle punch and a 1 1/4" circle punch. For the male dolphin, I used some Peppermint Lawn trimmings to wrap around the hoop, and left the female dolphin's hoop as is in white. I created my own custom sentiment from "Harold's ABC's".
I wanted to add a heart above the dolphins - and then used my red Sukura glitter pen for something "extra".
To add "kraft" to my card - I just wrapped some "natural" Lawn Trimmings around my sentiment piece. Hope you all like it and have been inspired! See you soon!
