For the first card, I centered a heart shaped mask on top of a panel of patterned paper. I marked the center of the heart with a dot and pulled out the Barn Board ink.
Using the dot as the starting point, I dragged the ink pad across the die cut and out to the edges of the panel. I removed the heart shaped mask, centered a stack of die cut hearts inside the masked area and then added a cranberry pearl on top!
This may suprise you, but I intend to use this as a sympathy card. I found the perfect vellum quote
and ran it through my Xyron to create a sticker. I adhered it to patterned paper and inked the edges with Barn Board.
The finishing touch was a trio of self adhesive cranberry pearls in the bottom right of the card.
Now I do realize it is February so of course I had to create a valentine! I took the remaining hearts and arranged them on the front of a card. I die cut a sentiment and turned it into a sticker.
I added self adhesive cranberry pearls in the center of each heart and placed the sentiment across the bottom. Just by changing the sentiment, this card could easily be a birthday or anniversary card.
I am playing along with this month's Quick Quotes Challenge: "Hearts! Any Kind of Hearts or Heart!" You can find all the details HERE in case you want to join in!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today! Susie
