Papertrey 5th Anniversary: Day 7 Hearts Challenge 1

Whoopee! Hearts are my favorite motif. Have you noticed all the fabulous shapes in which they come, but they are still totally recognizable as 'hearts'? Papertrey's Day 7 Challenge is to make any project using hearts. You can find their challenge here.

I found, a while back, a wonderfully simple card that I knew I needed to copy (on the right). (I've tried to re-find this card on the web, but I've been unable to locate it again. If you know the source, please let me know so I can give credit. Thanks.) Two wonderful pattern papers from Basic Grey's 'Bittersweet' collection have been begging to be paired up with Papertrey's Kraft paper and 'Heart Prints' stamps and dies.

These are my take on the card above. I used white embossing ink with Ranger's holographic embossing powder for the sentiments on the dark brown paper. I also love the way Papertrey card stock takes the embossing in the plastic embossing folders. Hint: I have found that Cuttlebug Embossing Folders do not completely cover the front of an A2 card, but all my Sizzix  Emboss Folders will cover.

Papertrey supplies: Kraft card stock, 'Heart Prints' stamps and dies.


  1. You have certainly been the busy lady! Good for you getting all of these beautiful projects done. I hope you win one of the prize packages!!! I got a little overwhelmed with all of the anniversary challenges so I haven't entered any projects, but I am so pumped about the new release and all of the beautiful projects from the design team and challenge participants. Thank you so much for your ever encouraging words-I've missed hearing from you! Happy weekend. :)

  2. I love the design of this. I may have to CASE it too!
