Jigsaw Heart

Hi there

Back again to share another card.  This is the Valentine's Day card I made for my boyfriend.

Here it is...

I started by die cutting some red cardstock with a jigsaw puzzle die.  I adhered this to a piece of scrap cardstock and then die cut with a stitched heart die.  I cut another heart from some black glitter cardstock using a larger die from the same stack.  I made triple score lines at the top and base of the card base and then adhered the hearts, the red one being adhered on some 3D foam.  The card was finished by stamping the sentiment in red. 

The photo below captures the glitter in the black cardstock better, and the score lines at the base.

Materials used:
  • Dies: Dovecraft - Jigsaw Pieces; MFT Die-namics - Stitched Heart Stax
  • Stamp: Clearly Besotted - Mr and Mrs
  • Ink: Versa Color - Cardinal
  • Cardstock from stash
