Have you noticed the Framelit Dies in the Occasions Mini Catalog? These innovative, thin wafer-like dies let you cut single hearts for accents or layering. The unique design of these dies lets you see exactly where you are placing the design before you cut! Available in Hearts Collection (125599) or Labels Collection (125598).
Today my sample shows a card for that special Valentine using the cut out portion of the hearts framelit as my focal image. Tomorrow I will show one focusing on the "frame" portion.
I used a 4 x 4" piece of one of the designs in the "Twitterpated" Designer Series Paper and a 4 x 4" piece of Riding Hood Red Smooth Card Stock. I teach a lot of classes so I typically design my cards to maximize paper usage. Using the 4 x 4 measurement, I can get 9 pieces out of one 12 x 12 sheet. I used my Lace Border punch to punch out a piece of RHR Card Stock, and then cut this punched piece in half. I used a medium size heart framelit and my square of DSP and ran this through my Big Shot Die Cutting Machine. I put half of the lace piece on the top and bottm with adhesive and then adhered this piece to my card front. I then put some Whisper White Organza Ribbon on the inside of the heart frame and then using mini glue dots I adhered the Riding Hood Red piece on top. For the finishing touch I added some embellishments to "gussy it up" as my mom used to say!
