Heart Rows


I decided to use a lot of my leftover strips of cardstock to make another valentine, so I dug out my Martha Stewart heart border punch and just got busy! I used an assortment of reds, pinks, black and grey cardstock, and just layered them on top of each other - starting at the bottom and working my way up. I added some wide black ribbon, and tucked a little tag underneath it that was done with a retired SU! image and retired SU! punches.

I'm sharing this over at the Snippets Playground #211 - which is to always use your snippets.

Thanks for checking in, and have yourself a fabulous Monday!

Beautifully staggered borders! That makes the perfect Valentine card front.

Hi Carol, This is beautiful. What lovely colours and a super punch. It would go well in the current Crafting for all Seasons Challenge which is monochrome. Barbxx

Fabulous idea Carol! And for once I don't need to run out and buy anything as I actually have that wonderful punch :)

What a lovely card. I love that ombre look (or whatever the kids are calling it these day). I have a friend who always doubles or triples up on this border stamp. So cool!

What a beautiful card Carol! I love how you used this punch, which is one of my favorite. It looks so pretty layered like that and the tag is just the perfect embellishment with the sentiment on it. Will have to give this a try. Hugs, Brenda
