The inspiration for this card came from the adorable Doodlebug quote stickers. When I saw all of the different speech bubbles, I knew I wanted that to be the theme of my card. To create this card, I cut an A2 card with a top fold from the bright green cardstock. I then cut another panel to measure 4" x 5.25". Using VersaMark ink, I randomly stamped the two speech bubbles from the Loved stamp set. I sprinkled with clear embossing powder, zapped it with my heat tool and set it aside.

Next, I cut a number of strips of pattern paper with widths varying from 3/8" to 3/4". (By keeping my widths narrow, I ensured that I have enough pattern paper left to cover a card front. You can also use leftover scraps for this technique.)  I took a piece of scrap computer paper and cut it down to 2" x 4".  I covered one side of the computer paper completely with adhesive and then layered the strips on a diagonal. When the entire surface was covered, I flipped it over and trimmed the strips of paper. I used Tim Holtz Shabby Shutters distress ink to ink the edges. This step is very important because it gives all of the different papers a cohesive look. I adhered this to the bottom of the stamped block. I used a piece of ScorTape to adhere the ribbon and foam adhesive to adhere the panel to the card.

I added sparkle to the "Smile" sticker with a Wink of Stella Brush pen. Love this pen! Seriously, every card maker should have one (or two or three)! To enlarge the sticker, I placed it on a piece of coordinating and fussy cut around it. Then I used a Signo gel pen (my other favorite pen) to add the white faux stitching.After popping the stickers on foam adhesive, I added them to my card. Because the embossing made the card surface slick, I added a squirt of Glossy Accents under each foam dot. The inside sentiment reads: you are loved. I think this would be a fun and cheery card to send to a teen who just went off to college. 

This card is so cute and would make a great card to send to someone you haven't seen in a while!
