Love - Red with Gray Stripes

Today's anniversary challenge on the Papertrey Ink (PTI) blog is to make a card with die cuts and without any stamping.  I thought of a many-layered Valentine for my husband, with die-cut hearts and borders and lots of color.

Then I cut out my first piece, a red "love" word, and set it down on a gray-striped background.  Loved the simple impact of just that.  So I inlaid a striped heart and tied on some striped twine and called it done.  Sometimes super simple is very good! 

Card details:
  • Card stock is PTI pure poppy (red).
  • Patterned paper is the tiny stripes print from PTI pure poppy "+ white basics" patterned paper (retired) and the narrow stripes print from PTI soft stone (light gray) bitty big pattern pack.
  • Red striped twine is by WeRMemoryKeepers.
  • Die is PTI wonderful words: love.

I love the simplicity of this! I wish I didn't already have a card made for my husband for Valentine's, as he would like this card better than the one I made! His favourite colours are red and gray.
