Hello and welcome to my blog today wherever you are in the world!

Today I am sharing a card that I have designed for the January Global Stampers Showcase Blog Hop which is all about love, baby!

For my card design, I have used one of my favourite colour combinations, Monochrome with a splash of pink!

I am a BIG fan of stripes in my life and I keep seeing this background technique all over social media so I've finally given it a go!  There is even a tutorial for to you watch below!

I really enjoyed the simplicity of putting the background together; I have used strips of BASIC BLACK and BASIC WHITE CARDSTOCK and added the die-cut heart from the STITCHED BE MINE DIES that I have raised slightly with STAMPIN' DIMENSIONALS

For the sentiment, I have cut a banner of BASIC WHITE CARDSTOCK and then used the PLAYFUL ALPHABET DIES to cut out the word love.  

"You" has been heat embossed onto BASIC BLACK CARDSTOCK using WHITE STAMPIN' EMBOSS POWDER

I love the simplicity of this card design and I think the bold colours work really well together.
