When I was playing around with my new Perfect Print Numbers Bigz Dies a couple of weeks ago, I cropped a couple of hearts that have been sitting on the edge of my desk ever since. A cropped heart gives you a thin outline of a heart along with a smaller, solid heart (the piece that’s cut out from the inside of the heart). I was most intrigued by the thin outlines so I decided to use them in today’s Simple Saturday project. Here’s my card:
- I Love Us. Every once in a while, a sentiment comes along that makes me very happy. Good Greetings is a Hostess set in the upcoming Holiday Catalog – and it’s full of great sayings that are styled in a cool script. There’s a variety of sayings for all occasions, but the concept of “I love us” really stood out to me as unique and cool. Demonstrators were able to earn this set in June. Customers will be able to purchase it as a Hostess set starting August 28.
- Chain, Chain, Chain. Chain, Chain, Chain. Chain of Hearts. It wasn’t good enough for me to just set the hearts on top of one another or side-by-side. I wanted the hearts to interlock (like the Olympic rings). In order to do that, I snipped one heart in the place where the heart would pass behind. I wove the heart through and then carefully glued it down. Cute, huh?
- Color Progression. I used four hearts (I know, I know, it’s not three) and then added the sentiment in the bottom, right. The hearts move from dark-to-light. After Night-of-Navy, I chose the blues with the most aqua in them. The colors (left-to-right) are Night of Navy, Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana and Pool Party. I stamped the super-fun sentiment in Night of Navy to pull the Navy from the left side of the card.
