This card was directly inspired by a sheet of love-themed paper I found in my My Mind's Eye folder. It had a swanky pattern in the corner with the words "J'adore" written in red glitter. I thought it would look awesome paired with the Feelin' Cupidy stamp set from The Cat's Pajamas, and timing is good with Valentine's Day coming up. Based on the Freshly Made Sketch #269 (turned 90 degres left), I added a piece of red satin ribbon and some love tickets leftover from a retired Artisan Embellishments kit, both lying on my desk.
The corner was punched with the Curvy Corner Trio punch and I added a silver glitter Nuvo drop. The Cupid image was colored and handcut. This is where I had to improvise before putting the card together. I wanted the words "J'adore" to be readable and I couldn't fit the Cupid comfortably without the card feeling cramped, so I decided to cut the card shorter as well as the patterned paper so the words would move slightly to the left, and then I added the Cupid to the right side of the card, slightly hanging out. By doing this, the card still fits into a regular-sized envelope. The card also looks really cool and the design is more dynamic.
