You Are Loved ~ A Weekly Challenge Card

I have decided to finish of my week of crafting by creating a card for a few online paper crafting challenges. I enjoy how these online challenges require me to try something new and create a project I might not otherwise make, like this You Are Loved card. MissCarriesCreations-LovedBloomedCardI began my search for adventure at the Heart2Heart I Heart Us challenge where we were to use the I Heart Us paper pack or photos that show how much love we have for those people in them. On my card, I decided to use the Heart pattern from the I Heart Us paper pack and pair it with the “You Are Loved” sentiment. This card will be one I give to someone who I truly care about.

My next stop was the Double Trouble challenge – one I have been meaning to enter. This week they are teaming up with the Use Your Stuff challenge, requiring us to choose elements on a Tic-Tac-Toe board and produce✨something magical.✨

I decided to include silver, a sentiment, and a die on my card. The silver is very subtle with a bit of Silver Embellishing Thread, Silver Gems and some Silver Shimmer added to my rose and butterfly images.


I love how that little butterfly from the Butterfly Friendship set is tucked under the rose image – making it appear almost ✨magical✨ as it starts to fly off the card. This stamp set has a delightful watercolor background for each image and a matching die set that makes cutting out the images a breeze.

Joining these challenges is simple and fun. I would love to see some of your creations this month. You can choose to join the Heart2Heart, Double Trouble, or Color My Heart Dare challenges and be inspired to try something new.

I can’t wait to see what you create!

  1. Beautiful card Carrie, great selection of the background paper for your foral and butterfly. I love that you tucked the butterfly behind the floral. I always have a tendency to put them on top and partially hiding is more intriguing. Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble and Use Our Stuff. Please come back and play along with us for other future fun challenges.


    1. Thank you for the compliments, Suzanne. I have always tucked them behind and never even thought to place them on top. 😅 I’ll have to try that.


  2. The layers and the detail on this card are stunning. Everything is so carefully thought out and placed just right, using such a lovely colour combination not normally considered with this paper pack. This is one of my favourite cards thus far that I have seen using this paper pack. AWESOME! Thanks for sharing with us at Heart 2 Heart 🙂
