Trio Hearts

Hi Scrappers!!!

It's been a very busy week.  Our temperatures here have been extremely cold (-9).  Then our youngest daughter received that nasty flu.  So we had her home from school for a few days.  We were very glad that she never received the high fever that others are getting with this flu.  But for now, she is feeling much better.  Now let's hope no one else in the house gets it.

But with all said, let's get on with today's card.  I'm calling it the trio card because of the three hearts.  So let's take a look:


 
 
Card Recipe:
 
Brown cardstock (4 1/4" x 5 1/2")
Pink cardstock (4" x 5 1/4")
Brown cardstock (3 3/4" x 5"), embossed with Sizzix folder
  
 
 
 
Cricut Cartridge:
 
George & Basic Shapes - Page 119 <heart1> at 1 1/4"
 
Cut this heart three times out of pink cardstock.  Then I embossed each one separately with different folders.  Two from Sizzix and one from Cuttlebug.  All folders dealt with hearts (refer to picture above).  I finished each heart by inking around the heart with Tim Holtz "Tea Dye" distress ink and foam taping each heart to the card.
 
 
 
 
Pink cardstock (1" x 4 1/4"), inked with Tim Holtz "Tea Dye" distressed ink
White cardstock (3/4" x 4 1/4"), inked with Tim Holtz "Tea Dye" distressed ink
Stamp "True Love" from Studio G with Dew Drop Brilliance "Pearl Crimson"
 
 
 
 
Finally, I added three pearls from Recollection and glued them down with Scotch Quick-Dry Adhesive glue.
