Love Cards


The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge is "anything goes", so I went to work with some SSS exclusive dies to make these cards. I had to wait a while for this SSS large heart doily die as it was sold out, but I finally snagged one recently and I just love it! I wove some narrow black ribbon through it and dressed it up with a little red heart and a bow. The "love you" sentiment is also an exclusive SSS die called "small Love you" and I die cut it in white to make it stand out against the black script dsp. I liked this so much I made a 2nd card...

I threaded this heart with red crochet thread and tied a little bow, keeping it simple and clean on a solid red background.

I'm entering both cards into the SSS Wednesday challenge "anything goes."

I'm also entering them into the SSS Work It Wednesday for June.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day!!

What fabulous cards, Carol. I love this die and you really dressed it up with the ribbon and thread. I adore the little red heart on your first card, just sets everything off nicely. Enjoy your day.

These hearts look so good with the ribbon twined through them. They are both lovely cards, but I am partial to the earth tone one. I think because you don't see hearts in earth tones that often.

Wow, love those of these cards Carol! The heart is amazing and I'm in love with that die! The ribbon is so pretty woven through it too. Love the "I love U" die too. Great cards my friend! Hugs, Brenda
