You Mean the World to Me Card

Hi there!
Samantha here, and today I'm sharing a bright, happy card for someone you love and appreciate!


When I saw the sentiment 'you mean the world to me, I just had to make a heartshaped world to go with it!

Let's make this card together!

- I used a heart die cut that was on my desk, and free hand sketched some 'countries' to resemble the world! I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers! It was so fun! And the best part is, it didn't have to be perfect! You eye automatically recognizes it as the 'world'! 
- set aside to dry
- heat emboss the big 'you' in black, onto vellum and then fussy cut out
- heat emboss the remaining part of the sentiment in white onto a black strip of cardstock

- on the card front, use white embossing paste and the stencil to create the background

- clean the stencil and dry it
- once the stencil and the paste are dry, put the stencil back on the card front, directly over where you had just added the paste
- add color with gelatos and Distress Crayons! yay for rainbows! yay for the pop of color!
- adhere your card together and pop up the banner part of the sentiment with foam tape

I could have left the embossing paste white and the card would have had a more classic, modern look. And you know I do LOVE some white embossing paste on white cardstock - the texture is awesome! But this time, I just had to add a rainbow! Lol!

I used the amazingly versatile All About You stamp set and paired it with the super fun Focal Point Stencil
