Burlap Bliss

Hi All! It's finally time to break out the hearts. I hope you're ready! I have been pinning away on Pinterest and have so many cute projects that I want to create and share. I just had a workshop this week, so I have at least three to share with you over the next week.

This first card, I couldn't help but recreate. It was inspired by this card from Ingrid Danvers. I fell in love with the Burlap heart. Since I had just gotte
n my new Heart Framelits, I figured it was the perfect time to try them out.

These Framelits are great! Not only do they cut th
rough the Burlap but they cut through the Glimmer Paper as well. The glimmer paper is a bit too thick for my punches, so I haven't really been able to use it. If you want to be playing with different textures, they are a must have.

The background was created using my Music Notes wheel. I've had it a while and I think I've used it once. It's great for creating vintage-y themed cards--which is something I don't usually do. The sentiment is from a new stamp set in the Occasions Mini called Loving Thoughts. It coordinates perfectly with the banner from the new Take it to Heart stamp set. I love the font and it has a lot of great sentiments in it.

My husband joked that this card doesn't really look like my style. It really isn't, but I LOVE everything about it. I hope you do too. Thanks so much for stopping by!
