Belli Challenge #83 - Hearts


It's time for another Belli Challenge! This week's challenge is to use hearts. Please be sure to head over to the Belli blog to check out what the other designers have done and to see who our new design team members are! This week we also have a guest designer and I think it's apropos that she is the guest for our hearts challenge - not only is she a talented card maker, she is also the recipient of a heart transplant!

For my card, I started with a base of Bazzill textured white card stock and some scraps of BasicGrey's Eskimo Kisses Woodland paper. I cut the hearts out of the patterned paper using a paper punch, alternating the direction of it as I punched so my hearts would lean in different directions since the punch is not symmetrical. I used the leftover strip of paper on the inside, along with a couple of extra hearts.

I scored a few lines above the script stamp, which is from the Glitz Clear Distress set, and one line below it. The sentiments on the front and inside are from Memory Box.

This is a quick and simple card and a great way to use up those scraps. Plus it's a fun way to use your leftover Christmas paper for Valentine's Day!
