Happily Ever After

Hello and welcome.  Wow, is it warm and toasty outside today.  Perfect time to break out the craft supplies and get to work.  I finished this card that was made for a co-workers wedding.  His bride chose purple for the wedding so I wanted to incorporate those colors in the card.  I started by embossing white cardstock with the Victoria embossing folder from Cuttlebug. 

To make the focal point, I used the heart border die cut from Papertrey Ink.  I cut the border in several shades of purple cardstock and then layered them on top of one another and trimmed the strip to fit the card.  Rather than layering them right on top of one another, I offset the top layer to the right so only the bottom portion of the heart is showing in the lighter color.

After die cutting the borders, I noticed the left over piece had a pretty cool looking border also so I added a strip on top of the hearts to provide the perfect spot for the sentiment.

This card is being entered in the layers challenge at Young Crafters Unite.  Click here to check out the contest and play along. 

Happy Crafting
