there! Dawn McVey here with a start-to-finish card for you today! I
pulled out lots of new Classic Calico Vol. 3 goodies to put this little love
note for my hubby together. If you want to take this tutorial on the go with you,

To get started, I adhered 3 patterned papers to a cream card base; one large panel and two narrow strips along the bottom.
Next, I used a decorative edged die to die cut the top edge of a Journal Card.
Then I used a couple Copic Markers to color in the letters, overlapping the colors, just like the letters overlap on the card.
I pulled out the coffee ring stamp from the Back To School stamp set (Yearbook collection) and stamped it using a kraft colored ink.....a perfect creamy coffee color! ;)
Lastly, I stamped the "Love you more" sentiment from the Oh Snap stamp set twice -- once on a wood veneer flag, and again directly on the Journal Card. This way, I could layer the banner right over the top of the sentiment on the Journal Card, creating a bit more dimension on the sentiment. Before moving on, I heat set all of the stamping with a heat tool, to avoid smearing on the slick Journal Card surface.
(supplies : patterned paper - Studio Calico Classic Calico Vol. 3 6x6 paper pad ; Classic Calico Vol. 3 Journal Cards ; Classic Calico Vol. 3 Badges ; Classic Calico Vol. 3 Wood Veneer Flags ; Classic Calico Vol. 3 Oh Snap stamp set ; Yearbook Back to School stamp set ; other - Papertrey Ink Edgers #3 die, rustic jute button twine, kraft ink & dark chocolate ink ; Copic markers)
All that was left to do, was to put it all together....there's a bit of twine tied around the bottom of the card, and the Journal Card was adhered with foam adhesive. The finishing touch was the addition of the "Today" badge!
I hope you've enjoyed today's card and are inspired to get a little crafty yourself!
