Love Heart

I made this card for the latest challenge at AAA Cards which is 'One Inchie'.  I wanted to have both an image and sentiment on the card, but struggled to find anything small enough to fit within an inch.  This Clearly Besotted heart with 'love' running across it was perfect to fit into the inchie frame.

I used a small die to cut a one inch aperture in the front of the card blank and then embossed around the edge.  I used red ink to stamp the heart onto white card and embossed it with clear embossing powder before cutting it with the coordinating die.  I attached a piece of patterned paper inside the card and then used a foam pad on the back of the heart, placing in the centre of the aperture.

To make this card I used:
     5" x 5" white hammer card
     Clearly Besotted 'With All Your Heart' stamp and die
     Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Classic Squares' die
     Kars tan embossing mat
     Versafine Crimson Red ink
     Cosmic Shimmer clear embossing powder
     Snippet of Lili of the Valley 'Heartfelt' paper

I am entering the following challenges:
     AAA Cards - One Inchie
     Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes With Dies - March challenge

Hi Kath

Such a beautiful card. I love that little heart nestled in its frame.

I have that stamp set and have never thought that just one of the hearts from it could make such an impact. Just beautiful!

Hope you are having a good weekend and all is well with you.

Love Jules
