The Hearts Background die makes a super sweet Valentine card. This card came together in minutes and certainly pops with the red hearts. I created my card based on the Tic Tac Toe Challenge at The Paper Players. I went with Red, Embossing and Sparkle.
The Hearts Background die does all the work for you! The finished die cuts a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ rectangle, which is perfect for your A2 card bases. I cut the die four times in various colors and then assembled. Super simple and I love the stitched detailing. Here is a look at the actual die-
I started by cutting the die in White Daisy cardstock and using this as my base panel. I adhered the white frame directly to my card base. I then cut three more panels in Candy Apple, Silver Glitter and the red polka dot print from Sweet Safari. Then it was just like a super simple puzzle, adding the hearts back into the frame. I applied a dot of Liquid Glass adhesive in the center of the hearts and placed my cut hearts on top. You only need a small amount of adhesive, as the frame helps hold the hearts in place. You could also cut the whole thing with adhesive backed cardstock!
To finish off my card, I stamped my sentiment in Candy Apple pigment ink and clear embossed. My sentiment is applied with 3-D foam tape for added dimension. Super simple and the card comes together in minutes! Plus, I have all the supplies to make three more already cut and waiting to be assembled!
