Moxie Bright "I {heart} U" Card


Here I am just under the wire again posting a card I made for the Moxie Fab Chiclectic Challenge.  I am all about the colors, so I used all the bold, bright colors of the inspiration photo (below).  The large die-cut was a piece I had sitting around: I used an ink pad to change it from white to pink, then adhered to the orange designer paper.  I added a PC-generated piece of checkerboard paper and an "altered" length of tape (I'll be back with instructions for the tape). 
My favorite little never-used bronze frames were the perfect touch (see bed frame in photo) - I simply strung the alphabet beads through the frames with some wire and attached everything with glue dots.
[Edit: The designer "tape" is easy to do: simply adhere a length of tape to any designer paper - keep a bit of tape unstuck and then use a fingernail or bone folder to press down firmly on the rest of the tape. Now, quickly pull up on the tape all in one motion. The tape will pull off just the top layer of the designer paper and leave rough edges like the ones shown on my card above. You can stick the tape to your project with more adhesive (the back of the "designer tape" will not be sticky enough). You can also start with a longer piece of tape and after pulling up, fold the raw edges back to make an interesting ribbon - that will match any paper you have on hand! I have been able to tie the ribbon into a crisp bow - it looks a bit like oilcloth].
