From the Heart for Let's Craft and Create Challenge #180 on the 5th of February, 2022

For this month's challenge at Let's Craft and Create Challenge Blog we have the optional theme of


So that can mean Valentine's, engagement, wedding etc.

I have wanted to use the January 2020 Club La-La Land Craft kit for a while now!

So here is the front of my card photographed outside in the sun:

Here is a photo of the inside of the card, taken outside:

I have stamped Marci with Pen on to X-Press It Blending card using Ink on 3 Fadeout ink, then I have coloured with the following Copics markers:
  • skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, R20
  • lips - R81, R83, R85
  • eyes - 100, white gel pen
  • hair - E30, E33, E35, E37
  • red - R24, R27, R29, clear Wink of Stella
  • blue pants - B95, B97, B99
  • blue cardigan - B91, B93, B95
  • pen - C5, C7, Y15, clear Wink of Stella 

I have then used Antique Linen Distress Oxide ink with the On the Wall stencil on the front of a white square card from Envelope Solutions.

From the January 2020 Club La-La Land Craft kit I have die cut the Envelopes Border, Mailbox and With Love Label dies from white and red cardstock, then combined the two colours of cardstock.

I adhered Marci and the mailbox to the card using foam squares to lift them up from the card and then added the With Love Label, the Envelopes Border and then pieces of the border as single envelopes to the Mailbox and the inside of the card.
The white envelopes on the inside of the card were outlined with R85, to give them a bit more colour on the white base.

Here is a photo of Marci up close - you can see some sparkle!
