Hello and thanks for stopping by....
 I started with a 5"x7" white card and taped around the whole card to give me a nice, clean border when removed
 I used 3 Distress Oxide Inks, but you can use any make you have.  I love these particular inks as they blend so well and the finished result is excellent.
I used 'worn lipstick', 'spiced marmalade' & 'cracked pistachio' then, using a blending tool, applied the inks onto the card
 Once the card was coloured I removed the 'easy lift off' tape to reveal a clean, white border
 From the 'Perspective' Range by Creative Expressions, I die cut 'LOVE' three times on white card then once on brown, to give me a shadow affect, the 'YOU' twice on white and once on brown
I then glued them together, adding the white onto the brown but slightly overlapping, for a shadow, applied more Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue to the back of each word and adhered to the card front
 I cut another piece of white card, a little smaller than the original 5"x7" and coloured it to match the card front.  I dried the inks with my heat tool then stamped a verse using a Versafine Ink Pad in Onyx Black.  Double sided tape was applied to the back prior to adding it to the card
You could use a combination of blues, greens, greys, browns etc which also would be ideal for the 'male' card

Until tomorrow....

  1. What a good idea for the background and I have that die and a happy birthday one so must try this. Thank you, June.

  2. A very impressive but simple way to add words to your cards.
    As for the inks whilst i DO love the effect youve produced i would never be able to do it so professional looking as you have done.
    The saying a 'bad workman' always blames his tools springs to mind when i was going to say 'my inks are cheap inks and wouldnt achieve that effect' lol xxx

  3. Lovely card and brilliant tutorial today June. That's the one die in that set that I haven't got. Love your background. I have been making similar backgrounds lately. I enjoy making them. Thank you for sharing this.
