An "Eye" for an "I"

The challenge at 365 Cards this Tuesday is called an "Eye" for an "I" and you are supposed to use homophones for your sentiment. A homophone is a word that sounds the same as another, but has a different meaning. There are loads to choose from that would work perfectly on a card. Some of my favorites are:

I chose to use would/wood because I thought it would be unique from anyone else and I just love the Close to My Heart Treetops Acrylix stamp set and wanted to use it today.

I used a white card base and sponged Creme Brulee ink all over the front. I cut out the sentiment background shape from the Cricut Storybook cartridge in white cardstock and sponged with Sorbet ink. The wood patterned paper is from the Moon Doggie Level 2 Paper Packet. I stamped the tree in Desert Sand and Juniper and layered them. I also stamped little hearts from the June Stamp of the Month set in Sorbet ink and cut them out. I added liquid glass to the swirls and applied the little hearts to the center of each swirl. I ran the card base through the Cuttlebug using the new Herringbone embossing folder. I printed the sentiment on vellum and added a nice sheer bow.


  1. Good card - well thought of.


  2. such a great job, and you did do something different from the rest, very clever!!!!

  3. I love the soft look of the teal and pink... and I can see why you love that stamp set - very cute!

  4. That is a great sentiment to go with that stamp set!

  5. GREAT card! Love the tree and the sentiment!

  6. Kira, this is such a sweet card and a great word choice for the challenge!
