Inspired Stamps Love Card

Did you miss me? My holidays seemed to just keep going and going but I'm finally back for the New Year! Today I am sharing a super simple card highlighting the beautiful Hymn Girls: Heart to Cheek stamp from Inspired Stamps. I began my process initially coloring the stamped image with Copics but it just seemed to overpower the image.  So I decided to go "outside the box" and leave her white.  Since she was so simple, she needed a simple background-enter the humble red doily heart on a white base!  I seldom use a plain white card base but I like this so much, I may begin to do it more.  Lest the card be too plain, I added a sweet knotted red and white ribbon and called it done.

This design would be super simple to make in multiples to send to several lucky Valentines.  I know I will be giving one to my newest Valentine, my beautiful grand daughter, who was born the week of Christmas.  This Mimi is over the moon in love with her!
