Patterned Hearts Card


All the patterns used are from the My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Happy Go Lucky 6 by 6 pad.

I cut 3 hearts in each pattern from the Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge.

I wanted to make them as even as possible so I used some strips of paper adhered with removable adhesive around the edges to help keep things as even as I could.  It's still not perfect, but far better than I think I would have done without some guidelines.

After I had all the hearts in place I started drawing the lines with my Sakura Gelly Roll pen.  I wanted to create a kind of frame.  When I was done drawing the lines I didn't like the way the corners looked, so I added some pink dew drops.

The sentiment on the bottom is from SP & Company's set I Love Love.  I stamped it in Versa Mark and then embossed it using white embossing powder.

I rounded the top 2 corners on a 1/2 inch setting on my corner chomper.  

As a finishing touch I decided to add Diamond Stickles to the pink hearts.
