I carry your heart with me

Hello friends – hope your Monday is going well. I have a valentine card to share with you..and some news at the end of this post. First, here are the cards.

The large card was made using a silhouette file that was generously shared by a fellow crafter on a facebook group I belong to. The file is actually three panels of heart shapes – which each panel the hearts are smaller and when you put them all together it had a nice dimensional look. I used foam tape to pop the layers up, but that is not necessary. On the front I added a couple of hearts along with a sentiment that was computer generated – the first two lines of one of my favorite love poems – i carry your heart – from e.e. commings. Here is a closer look at the front to show the three layers.

When these panels are cut you end up with many cut out hearts – a whole pile of them!! So I took nine of them and popped them up on a smaller panel and made the smaller card. I think it took longer for me to line up these nine hearts than it did to make the entire first card!

Now some news.. I don’t know if you noticed or not, but there is a new blog badge on the right side of my blog for I Brake For Stamps. I am now on the design team for this company and can’t wait to show you what I’ve made with their stamps. Come back on Wednesday for my first card. And save 10% on your purchases at their store when you use code SAVE10NANCY. They had thousands of stamps!!

Thanks for stopping by today!
