A little bit sketchy...

Yep. I'm a little bit sketchy. And I'm crafty! But, both of those are good things to be this week over at Less is More. They've given us a fabulous sketch to follow--but you HAVE to follow it EXACTLY. No rotating, no other shape than a rectangle, nothing. This totally appeals to my lazy personality, so of COURSE I had to join in!

Here's the fabby sketch~

Here's my card~

Details~



I wanted to do something simple and a Valentine that I could copy and mail easily. I do NOT enjoy paying extra postage when I receive mail and I NEVER want that to happen to anyone else when I mail them a card--ya know?

This card has the LOOK of a one layer card, but it's really not one. I've stamped the hearts on the white base and then stamped the bird cage onto vellum, cut it out, and placed it over the hearts. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy! ;)

I think this will do quite nicely for mailing! I may link up again, as this sketch is really versatile--I hope you'll join in the fun! Happy stamping!!! :)

PS: Forgot to mention that this is my weekly "Spread the L-O-V-E" project--it'll be used in my DH's 14 days of Valentines that I'm doing for him. :)
