Friday 1 February 2019


Pattie has a new digi stamp in her shop ...
I snaffled this immediately, and used it to make a Valentines day
card for my Hubby.

Straight away, I decided that some of the hearts could be leaves...
so added a few stalks and coloured them (with my alcohol pens) as leaves. 
I coloured the red hearts so that they would look chunky, 
with a highlight. 
The intricate heart inside the wreath, is cut from  die I just bought!
Such a bargain... it only cost £1.50 from The Works.
It cuts like a dream and I couldn't believe it
when it fit perfectly inside the image I had already coloured!
I cut it in the same colour as the card.

The word "love" is actually a beautifully cut piece of wood. 
They were a bargain too...I think I got 25 in the pack, for £1! 
Wish I could remember where I got them, as I would be tempted to get more. 

I didn't want to put too much more onto this card, as it has been made for my hubby
and thought he wont want to too fussy or fancy.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Die cut divas - love is in the air - 1 March

I can see why you chose the heart wreath, different and alluring. I really like the embossing inside the wreath to give more depth. So glad you joined us at Die Cut Divas.
