It took me a while to come up with just the right sentiment. I knew I would be making my own with some alphabet stamps because I've never seen a stamp set for this particular "occasion". Some of the sentiments I considered were "it's not you, it's her" and "she never even made you a mixed tape" (ha, it made me laugh, but not sure it's funny to anyone else, lol). The whole idea is pretty tongue-in-cheek, the intent is to make the recipient smile and you definitely don't want to make them feel worse! Here's what I decided to go with:
I used SU Midnight Muse card stock for the base, and Crumb Cake for the heart. Then I added some tone-on-tone details with some Midnight Muse ink. I embossed the letters in white and cut up the heart, crumpled it and stapled it back together with black staples.
Dare I say it was kind of fun? Who hasn't felt at some point that their heart was all smooshed and needed to be put back together? It's not a feeling you get to express much in card-making so it was fun to think outside the box on this one, even if the reason is a bit sad.
Well, I hope it does its job and makes my pal smile. Thanks for looking!
