With Heartfelt Thanks! Make It Monday!

I am popping in today with another card.  Actually, I have a few note cards.  I am still writing thank you notes.  This suite of note cards is for this week's PTI  Make It Monday Challenge #150.  We are to make a Window Screen Card.  Here is my take on the challenge.

I started with 3 5/8 X4 1/4 note card size.  I tried to make the note card with the least amount of waist.  This size works.  I stamped the sentiment from PTI Script Sentiments stamp set across the bottom with Memento tuxedo black.

I am using PTI rustic white card stock.  My go to white for awhile now.   I die cut the largest frame in Fabulous Frames dies.  I used the square image and stamped the coordinating frame from Fabulous Frames stamp set.  I  stamped a few of the frames in Memento Black.  One square I clear embossed the whole frame after I stamped it in black.  However, it was when I stamped embossed the frame in Versa mark and black embossed that I loved the results.  The black just pops.  I die cut the heart border in the same rustic white and layered for the screened effect behind the raised(foam tape) focal frame.  

I then searched for the right sized die cut heart in my stash that would fit perfectly inside.  The only one I had was WPlus 9 heart die from the Seasonal Sentiments die collection.  I cut cut the heart in red and added dimensionals and slightly curled the top of the heart for added dimension.    I decided I wanted to keep these note cards as simple as possible so I did not add any other embellishments.

I like this look!  Once I got the initial design figured out, it went pretty quick.  I need to make a few more and I will be finished.  Of course, I do need to fill them out and get them to my students who gave me Christmas gifts.  So thoughtful of them.  

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
