CASology 170 - Heart

I thought I'd play along with CASology this week.  I love the "heart" challenge! I've made a couple of cards....so here we go....


This first card was actually the second card I made.  I like both of them, but I think this one might be my favorite.  I cut the large heart frame using two dies from Lifestyle Crafts.  I cut it out three times. I taped the dies together so that all the frames would be the same. Using the inside smaller heart die, I cut this heart from a white panel (4 x 5.25).  I adhered all three of the frames together and adhered them to the card front. I made to hearts to adhere to the card base and colored them with Copics.  I added foam tape behind the acetate window and added my shaker items then adhered it all to the card base.  The white frame looked kind of plain, so I added some of my Zentangles around the edges and a little graphite shading which makes the edges of the frame look rounded.  The sentiment is from Tim Holtz.  


This card was made mostly on the computer.  I printed out the heartbeat line and the "with every beat of my heart" sentiment, then cut the card base out.  I cut a red heart using a die from Lifestyle Crafts and heat embossed the sentiment (PTI) in white.  I popped the heart over the heartbeat line.  I round the right corners with a 1/4 corner rounder.  Super quick and easy!

Which is your favorite card?  Would you have added something more to the first card?


Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by for a visit!  Hope you'll come back soon!  Your comments are greatly appreciated! Until next time...

Oh wow Susan - you blew me away with your first (second......) heart card. I really had to look closely and then read the post to see how you'd achieved such an amazing effect - stunning. Also love your second (first....) card, it's so effective.

Hugs.
