XOX Background with Ashlea Cornell

Hey there everyone, Ashlea here! I’m super excited to be on Catherine’s blog today to showcase this card that I created using the Hand Lettered Love Word Die and a few stamps from the Love is in the Air stamp set.

IMG-4267 My favorite thing about the Love is in the Air stamp set is that it includes lots of different words in small type and also a larger fun font that you can combine to make your own sentiments. Talk about personalization!

You can make a special, custom sentiment for most anyone you’d want to send a card to. For this card I chose to create the sentiment You Are My Forever and place it on some light colored Smoke and Mirror card stock.

I wanted to stick with the pink theme (obviously) so I created my own patterned card stock of sorts by using the XOX stamp from the Love Is In The Air set. I created interest by rotating the stamp to make the pattern of horizontal and vertical XO’s. I cut the card stock that I did this on with the largest stitched rectangle die included in the Postage Stamp die set. I also cut the sentiment strip with the same die to ensure the length was exactly the same.

I adhered that to a piece of  White Card Stock cut to 4.25″x 5.5″ with foam tape and began assembling the other two pieces to my card. First, I glued the sentiment strip to the bottom quarter of the patterned card front. I then glued the Love die cut to the right of the card and played with the dimension a bit by letting it hang off of the patterned card stock over onto the card base. Finally, I added just a few enamel dots…because more pink.


I hope that you’ve enjoyed learning about how I used these products from the Love is in the Air SOA Collection. We’d love to hear how you used them and what your favorite piece is!
