Well, another day of festivities! Today our task was to incorporate hearts into our project. So here's my heart filled card. I decided to use the heart border die from PTI that is so cute. I am not really into hearts in general but I originally bought it because I loved what Dawn McVey did with layers of the die cuts that looked like a flounce or scaled pattern.
Jenni Bowlin brown ink. Super simple! A tip for making cards with a clear cardstock base - use glue dots to fully adhere the paper to the acetate. It will create a perfect and sturdy base. Also, you can layer and mat using die cuts to hide the adhesive on the back. I often use the Mat Stack, and Layerz Mat Stack dies to get a professional finish. Here I needed more surface area for my front so I made a more traditional rectangular card with a standard sized 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" base.
Tombo Mono Multi glue - this stuff rocks for smaller paper pieces and even super skinny bits like alpha die cuts. I then ran the whole thing through with the Linen Impression plate. A little texture added very simply ... and those borders will never fall off especially now that they've been through my Big Kick machine! :P
Happy annniversary, Papertrey! Thanks for all the chances to win!
