Global Design Project #GDP020 Challenge

This is my first time to take part in the "Global Design Project - Case the Designer". After being greatly inspired by Connie Collins gorgeous card I wanted to take part. As you can see I have taken the same colours, black & white horizontal stripes and theme to make my cards. I just love the Bloomin' Hearts bundle and wanted to showcase where your creativity can take you and have made two cards as a result. In both cards the black, white & gold colour scheme has been used by the gold foil sheet, gold embossing and gold ribbon trim. To take the love theme literally, I placed LOVE in gold foil die cut letters to further accentuate the gold effect. On the 3D box card, I have used the Forever begins today sentiment and black embossed it on gold foil die cut frame to team with the theme hehe. It's been fun creating these cards, all of the elements used compliments each other and expresses the love in those sophisticated colours - such an inspiration!
