Love and Hearts

Hi everyone.  It's half way through February and time for a reminder about the CAS Mix Up February Challenge - Felt, Cork, or Canvas.  This fun challenge is being hosted by our talented Design Team member, Joanna.


For the reminder, I'm using felt this time.  Felt is easy to die-cut and dry emboss, but it is best to glue it to a thin piece of card stock first so that it holds it shape.  That always helps it cut cleanly.  I used a Love die from AliExpress.

Stamping is a small row of hearts in silver.  I used the same silver (Delicata) and red ink to splatter the background.  The Love die is popped up on foam for lots of dimension.

I hope you'll check out the challenge blog reminder post with new inspiring designs from our Guest Designer, Marianne (Marianne's cards 'n stuff) and our team.  Then come and play along!

I'm adding this card to:  AAA #108 - All you need is LOVE

Oh, this is a real stunner, Loll. Love the boldness of that gorgeous felt die cut and the way you have grounded it with your stamped row of hearts. And the splatters are the perfect touch.
I'm really excited about the new Christmas challenge as well. Off to take a look and subscribe.

In a beautiful style CAS :-) And although it's 100% CAS is very much happening on this card. Maybe it's energizing colors? Or maybe beautiful splashes? Or calming energy cards silver hearts? Everything on this card is perfect.
Hugs,

I Love your felt die cut LOVE, Loll. TFS the tip about attaching felt to CS before die cutting. I am thinking that would work well for cork too as it tends to stretch when die cut. Your added splatters, stamped tiny hearts were the perfect embellishments. Hugs...
