Happy Heart Day
This was a fun card full of several firsts. I finally got my hands on the Framelits by Sizzix and Hero Arts. There are stamps and coordinating wafer dies. With all firsts, there are things I would do differently next time. I was in a bit of a hurry and didn't secure the die to the paper (a little tape on the edge of the die and onto the scrap paper would have helped keep things more centered). When I ran the paper through the Vagabond, the wafer die slipped a little, but that's okay. Next time will be better (not perfect, just better).
Next I was trying to figure out what to put in the oval. I thought a big 1 4 would be sweet for valentines day, but I couldn't get motivated to do that. After sleeping on it, I decided to try the string art Spirelli technique. I really like the way it turned out!
I think I'll post this one on the Catered Crop Challenge "I Heart Recipe Swap". Jump over there and check out all the hearts.
