Happy Heart Day 2021

 

Happy Heart Day everyone!

I’m back and playing along with two challenges with this card today – the CAS on Friday challenge where the theme is ‘love’ and the Addicted to CAS Challenge where the theme is ‘Hearts’.

First of all I stamped, coloured and fussy cut the pretty Potted Passion stamp by Penny Black, Then I started on the background. I was originally planning to have an ink-blended circle in the centre but BOTH of my circle stencils have gone AWOL. So annoying! Instead, I decided to die cut a frame using the Penny Black Happy Heart Day Lovely Border dies. These are rectangular, but I just moved the die and partically cut it twice to create a square which I felt would give me more space for that lovely bold sentiment.

I adhered some patterned paper that was already on my table – I was so chuffed that it matched the colours of the leaves of my image so beautifully! I then stamped the sentiment – this is one of my absolute favourites! It’s from a 2006 Stampendous set and has really stood the test of time.

Finally I adhered the image and a few die cut hearts to complete my card.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Hi, Lucie. That’s a great idea about adjusting the proportion of the die cut to make a square – something I haven’t had the nerve to try yet. I like the soft water-colored appearance of your card. Thank you for including it in our “Hearts” challenge at ATCAS. xoxo, Fran
