More Hearts for February

My sweet friend, Maria, enclosed a variety of hearts in a card she sent me.  I used the red felt heart to make a card for AAA Cards, JUGsStamplorations Theme.


I started by stamping the music image from Penny Black butterfly symphony in Brilliance Pearlescent Coral (actually a beautiful pink ink) & then the sentiment from Altenew Painted Greetings in Brilliance Graphite Black.  The felt heart was glued in place to finish my CAS card.  May decide to round the top corners--couldn't make up my mind.


My entry for the February Poppystamps Love Me Do challenge is also a CAS card.


I die cut PS Heart String 3 times & glued the top & bottom pieces to white cardstock with the die still in place to keep them correctly positioned.  So nice to use some of my white cardstock scraps!  I stamped the sentiment from PS Grateful Heart in Brilliance Graphite Black & colored one of the hearts die cuts with a red Spectrum Noir sparkle pen.  It's not a bright red, but is sparkly & pretty in person.  I didn't stack the hearts so that it is slightly recessed into the white pieces.  Since this one won't go through the mail (hubby's anniversary or next Valentines Day card) I used foam tape to mount the focal point to the black cardstock.  I really love the simplicity & contrasts of this card.  I'm also entering The Snippets Playground.
