Happy Saturday! I hope your weekend is off to a great start!! I am stopping by today to share a couple of Valentine or Love cards with you. I am using a Die today from Simon Says Stamp, it is called Heart Alive. I got it on sale last year after Valentine's Day. Although it is a heart themed die, I think it would be perfect for anytime of the year!
I am also linking my cards to a New To Me Challenge, Pixie's Crafty Workshop. The owner of the challenge reached out to me about some Christmas cards I made using this same technique. She was so kind and full of life, I couldn't wait to give her challenge a try!! Please stop by her blog and play along.
I started my cards by glueing 1/4 in strips of paper onto a thin piece of copy paper. I glued them down with liquid glue and in rainbow order. I wanted the whole strip to stick so I thought liquid glue would be the easiest and quickest.
Once the strips were attached, I used the Simon Says Stamp die to cut out the heart pieces from the rainbow panel.
Next, I used the same die and die cut the heart pieces from my card panel (card front). I used the MFT Stamps: More Essentials Sentiments to stamp my sentiment. This is a great set that covers a lot of different occasions, definitely worth checking out if you do not own it.
Lastly, I inlaid the rainbow pieces back into my card front. This went rather quickly because the strips were all glued together. I was really happy how this card turned out! I will defiantly be making more and just changing the sentiment.
