Flight of Fancy Anniversary Cupid PP502

by Joanne James2. August 2020 09:00

Today it's Sunday and time for this week's new challenge over at The Paper Players! It's the turn of the fabulous Laurie to host this week and she has a fun theme challenge for you to work with:

    Horizontal Sketch featuring a large upside down triangle with a smaller triangle overlapping on the left with a banner behind the triangles.

I struggled a little with today's card as I don't know anyone getting married and I just couldn't seem to get into the zone! In the end I decide to flip the Paper Craft Crew Sketch and make an anniversary card using a new stamp from the upcoming Autumn-Winter catalogue - take a look:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

This cute cupid comes from the new 'Flight of Fancy' set. The set also features a whimsical angel and a witch on a broomstick, and whilst I think this cupid may have been designed with Valentine's Day in mind, paired with this sentiment from the 'Heartfelt' stamp set and a row of Stitched Be Mine stacked diecut hearts, I think he makes a sweet anniversary card too. Simply coloured with Blends and a liberal dose of clear Wink of Stella, plus some (retired) gold Wink of Stella to highlight his curls and bow, along with a sprinkling of rhinestones, makes for quite the cherub, don't you think?


Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

Such a clever way to use little cupid, who is totally adorable, by turning this into an anniversary card!   All the hearts in the background remind me of little floating heart clouds.  Super cute take on this week's challenge, Joanne!
