It's the season of love and what better way to share love than to let someone know they're special. Today's card was inspired by the new challenge going on over at Double D Challenges. Can you guess which panel I was inspired by? Two, to be exact.
I was inspired by the sweet vintage feel of the two bottom photo's.
Here's what I created:
Using printed papers from Authentique's Lovely collection, I cut hearts using Elizabeth Craft Designs Fitted Hearts and Scalloped Hearts.
I created a little pocket on the heart using some doily paper, where I could tuck some of the images I cut from the Authentique paper.
The sentiment is stamped using Elizabeth Craft Designs Love Sentiments. I finished it off with a little die cut heart and button tied on with string.
I hope you enjoyed today's card and will be inspired to join in on the fun over at Double D Challenges. Here's what you could win:
