February Challenge – Link Party #37

It’s time for a new challenge here on the Cropstop blog, and today I’m sharing a Valentine card I created with a pretty stenciled background.

Here’s how I put this card together:

Here’s the pattern for creating your own mini crochet flower:

Round 1 ch 2, 5 sc in 2cd ch from hook – join with sl st to first sc

Round 2 ch 2, 3 dc, ch 2, sl st in same sc

sl st in next sc, repeat Round 2 four more times to form 5 petals

Finish off

To create the heart on the inside of my card I:

  • Trimmed a piece of thin typing paper to the same size as my card
  • Cut a heart pattern in the center near the top
  • Laid my heart template over the inside panel of my card
  • Stamped the Plaid Background stamp (Impression Obsession) in Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide
  • Added a sentiment from the Tim Holtz Crazy Birds set in Fired Brick Distress Ink

Now it’s your turn to share the projects you’ve been working on!

Here’s how our challenges work:

  • Create ANY new project using products from companies  CropStop carries in the store. It’s ok if you didn’t buy it from us, and also fine if it’s a product we don’t currently have it in stock as long as it’s from one of the companies we carry!
  • Please, no back-linking old projects.
  • Limit five (5) entries per challenge.
  • Link your project here, link back to this post, and mention the CropStop Challenge in your post.
  • We’ll choose one random Winner who will receive a prize from the CropStop Store! (100 or more links = two winners and two prizes!)

Thanks so much for linking up with us, we look forward to seeing all your great entries this month. Grab our badge and help us spread the word that CropStop is a great place to play along!
