Hearts Galore


Just a quick post as I can't pass by Valentines without sharing this card - made today, less than 24 hours before "the day" - and not only is this for DH, but also to teach at my class tomorrow.

This could be used for an anniversary design, not just Valentines.

I started with a Z-fold card base, and partially die cut the heart using the s/b Die D Lites Swirled Heart - I can't link as the site is down, then cut the insert and outline together in gold, and glued it over the base card cut.

I then sized a piece of hand made paper I had in my stash to cover a standard base, partially die cut the heart out of the paper, and then halved it. Adhered the cut half to the front panel, nestling it around the gold heart.

The second half was adhered to the part of the back panel that showed, and added the white layer for a personal note - currently held with the matching paper clip so I can remove it for the class time tomorrow.

The background was then decorated with assorted red and gold metal heart confetti.
