From the Heart - Valentine

We've had a terrific response to our latest Design Team call for 2013.  And want to thank everyone who has taken the time to submit your resume and projects for consideration. 
Due to the amazing response and illness we are still going through the selection process, and hope to have a decision by next Friday the 15th! 
Thank you all for your patience, and good luck!


I have a pretty Valentine to share today - this is not really in the usual color palette, so if you wanted it could be an Anniversary card too!

I'm focusing today on The Rubber Cafe's  Floral Heart and From the Heart stamp sets. 


To achieve the open window affect
I used my Spellbinders Scallop Nestie hearts and fussy cut away the patterned paper top layer, so you could better see the inverted scallop. 

Here's a close-up view of the inside of the card.  I stamped and embossed the heart with white embossing powder on the same patterned paper, and than punched the stamped embossed image out with my scallop punch from Marvy- it was the perfect fit!

The pretty doily heart is another thin metal die, that I had.

I created a banner for my phrase From the Heart stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa, and added a charm, an embossed embellishment, and some pink/white bankers twine.  I felt like my lower RH corner needed a little something so I diecut/embossed another scalloped heart from my Spellbinders Nestibilities set using the same paper and just finished it with some small pearls.

Here's another close-up view of the banner- I used an arrow to anchor it.

Thanks for stopping in - enjoy the rest of your weekend!
