Its time to Celebrate Love!

I've finally found my mojo!! And that calls for hi-fives!

So without any ramblings, let me jump onto this card ... and what a way to begin my crafty adventures for this year!!
This is a huge A4 size card...and this is inspired by a card that I only have a photo of, don't know the origin...so if you think you know where it came from, please let me know! I don't really have well clicked pictures, so please pardon me for that!

So let me explain how this card came about. The background is XOXO cut with my Silhouette.
That has been layered over with a vellum to tone it down.

TIP - This is a trick I like to use if the background is too over powering. This is what it looked without the vellum..wouldn't you agree, the little girl and boy are just shifting out of the focus. So in comes the vellum, and the XOXO's fade into the background!



The little girl and boy and the grass and the sentiment , all are cut and written with Cameo.

The little cupid and the hearts are from Mama Elephant. Stamped, colored and fussy cut. Now there is a tiny little fun element to this card....its a Slider card...watch the video to understand how it works..its a teeny tiny 6 second video.

Wasn't that cute!! It took me a while to figure this out, but once I did, oh I fell in love with it! There are tutorials for this out on the net, but if there is a request for it, I shall do it too!! Leave me a comment saying you want a tutorial, and I'll make one!

And once the boy comes towards the girl for a sweet little kiss, a hidden message pops out! This message was a bit personal, so had to blur it!

But I totally loved making this!! And so glad I did, because, I have two more cards to share in a day or two!!
If you follow me on Instagram, you might have already seen one which I shared yesterday!!

So that's it for the first post of the year!! See you soon with another card!!
