A little bulk - A 365 Card Challenge

I spent the morning over at our other house today.  We have had the fireplace and flue renewed and I had arranged also to have a company come and give us a quote on carpets for the 3 bedrooms.  The new stainless steel flue and revamped fireplace look great but disappointingly the person coming to quote on the carpets didn't show, nor did they phone.  This sort of thing really annoys me, especially when I allowed them a four hour period in which they could come.  So needless to say I was needing to make a card this afternoon just to calm down.  I decided to play along with the Day 351 Adding a little Bulk Challenge over at 365 Cards in which you are required to use chipboard as the base of the decoration piece of your card.


For the bulky part of my card, I covered a die cut chipboard heart with a piece of die cut paper and layered this slightly offset over another heart cut from pink cardstock.  Some twine, a felt flower and my sentiment finished this decoration piece.

Love must be in the air given its was Valentine's Day earlier this week, and yesterday's post was a Wedding Card.  Today's card could be suitable for an engagement, anniversary or wedding celebration.

The cardstock colours are Stampin' Up's Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Pear Pizzazz and Pink Pirouette, the papers which are a great match are from Echo Park's Victorian Garden Collection.  I have to say I am really loving the Echo Park Range of Papers.

Well taking time out in my craft room this afternoon did help me calm down and it was probably a good thing to be thinking of a love themed card.  I will now have to ring and organize quotes for next week from some other companies.

I hope you are all having a great day whatever it is you are up to.

this is lovely Dani, I love the greens and pinks together and the heart is so cute! It's raining here, very hard, and the little one is still feeling sore...poor guy...sorry you had a bad day waiting, I hate when that happens! Our internet service is always going out and it seems I am always waiting for someone to come and fix it and then it turns on before they get here and they say there's nothing wrong...ok I am rambling...have a great day, hope you get that carpet installed :)

Danie, your card is fabulous. I am glad that it helped you calm your nerves after a no show. The music paper outside the pink heart is a wonderful idea.
