2 heart gems

 For this weeks challenge all about love, love is in the air, valentines etc. I chose to do a little bit different card for me. I started with brown card stock. I cut out 2 nontraditional heart shapes  from white colored card stock that are  actually the cut outs from another card that I did in a similar Fashion, just opposite and then went over them lightly with my brown ink pad to put just a little bit of a rustic touch on it. I stamped in light brown and then went over the stamping area with my glitter gel pen. I took my dark brown fine tip marker and created the stitching affect around both parts. I stamp happy Valentine's Day in brown ink on tan card stock . I had a red and pink floral card stock that I thought would be a pretty background and I took one of my edging punches and made a lacy  effect at the bottom and then put gemstones in between each center.


  1. Lovely take on the inspiration photo!

  2. I really like the very subtle message on the hearts, gorgeous papers. We would love to know which is your favorite, ribbon or lace and why. Thanks for sharing your card over at AYLI Challenge this week!

    1. I'm probably partial to ribbon just because it's easier to work with on cards, but I really like the lacy look this gave on this particular card.
