you + me...

Hello A Jillian Vance Design fans!!  Rosemary here with a card that I made using the new Grandpa's Glass Cup of Love die and the companion stamp set Simply Said:  Perk Up.  You can buy the die and stamp set together as a bundle or pick them up separately.  As many of you know the Spring Coffee Lover's blog hop has been going on since March 18th.  A Jillian Vance Design is a super sponsor (YAY!!) and that means that if you play along you have a chance to win a $25.00 gift certificate to the A Jillian Vance Design store (double YAY!!).  So, I will be posting this here little card to the Spring Coffee Lover's blog hop line up.  The linkie closes on Friday, March 25th, so there is still lots of time to play along.


I wanted to keep things simple for my card so I started by die cutting the Cup of Love from some white cardstock and then removed all the pieces.  Only a portion of the die was used to cut the heart and the bottom of the tea cup from red cardstock.  A panel of kraft colored patterned paper was die cut using the second largest die from the Polka Dot Rectangle Backdrop die set.  This die creates the perfect mat for the Cup of Love image.  I adhered the die cut to the panel and then added in the red cardstock portions.  The little heart was popped up with a small piece of foam tape.  I stamped the sentiment from Perk Up using black ink.  All of the sentiments in Perk Up fit perfectly in the opening at the bottom of the die... love that!!   A mat was created for the die cut image by die cutting red cardstock using the largest die from the Rectangle Backdrop dies.  A simple, but I think striking looking card!
