Hearts and Dots

Good Morning All and a Very Happy Tuesday!

Well, another week has flown by.  Hope you all had a very happy Mothering Sunday and were spoiled rotten!

Todays card is one that I was really pleased with.  I've used the Couture Creations Ornamental Lace Dies "Touch of Love" for the main focal point and everything used is from Creative Expressions.

So, let's get started.....

Emboss a piece of Coconut White Card with the A4 Rambling Blossoms Folder.

Highlight the raised areas with Shabby Shutters Distress Ink.

Matt and layer onto Black Foundations Card.

Did Cut 4 hearts using the Couture Creations Die from 2 different co-ordinating papers.  I've used paper from the 6x6 Couture Creations Vintage Rose Garden Pad.

Glue onto the background with Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue.

Cut out a sentiment from the same paper pad.  Matt and layer onto white card then attach to the centre of the hearts with 3d foam pads.  Stick onto the main card.

Add dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pastel Green PVA Glue around the edges to finish.  I've done mine quite randomly and different sizes.

And there's the finished card!

I hope you like it.  The greens are just right for Spring and with a different sentiment it would make a gorgeous wedding card (or even with the same sentiment).

I've really enjoyed playing with these dies.  They cut beautifully and with the brush tool from Spellbinders, they release really easily.

Well, that's it for this week.  Many thanks for visiting and leaving comments.

So, until next time, have a happy, crafty week!
