I had seen this one used a few times lately. It is actually so easy yet ends up looking so neat. And, of course, it fits for all of the Valentines and heart things we are thinking of this time of year.
I began by adding a gold section to the bottom of my card with Gold Distress Stain and Heidi Swapp gold Color Shine. The top of my card was plain white and I didn't really like that so I added interest with some stencils and more Distress Stains. How yummy did the golds turn out? Once I was done and it was all dry, I cut the word "love" out, cutting along the divide of color. That great die is from Lawn Fawn. Next I cut that same word out a couple times from recycled kraft colored packaging. I wanted the thicker paper of the packaging. All of the layers were glued together and added back in the opening that was cut out. Love the resulting dimension. I also used this amazing heart die from Simon Says Stamp and a few sequins scattered here and there. The stencils are a dot one from Tim Holtz and a postage style from The Crafters Workshop Stencils.This fits the CAS-ology challenge for NBUS - Never before used Schtuff.
Also the Just us Girls Stencil challenge.
And it fits the Crafty Gals Sweetheart challenge.
