I made these three Valentine's Day cards by cutting just one die cut heart on my Sizzix machine. For the first card above I just used the heart shape that I had cut. Base card and sentiment is SU, and I cut a border on Kraft cardstock with my Martha Stewart heart border punch. Gems by papermania.
For the second card above I used the negative left after cutting the heart as a template and stamped through it with brown ink on to the kraft cardstock. Sentiment stamp is by Scenic route and gem is K & Co, coloured with a copic marker.
For my final card I cut around the negative so it had a square surrround and turned it over to hide all the brown ink left over from my previous card. Main heart stamp is scenic route and sentiment is by Papermania. I highlighted the card with stickles and fine red glitter.
The flash has washed out the colours quite a bit - the red is deeper in real life. They are not fussy, but quick and simple. Thanks for looking X.
