Three hearts ...

I've taken the master board I created (see my earlier post here) and cut it up!!  It had always been my intention to use the board for cards but I didn't realise how difficult it would be to make the first cut.  It feels like a very destructive process to create something and then cut it up! 

I took my lead from this week's challenge at "Less is More" - it's a recipe this week.  They want to see THREE of something on the card plus they'd like all participants to visit and comment on THREE other participants.

So here is my first part of the challenge, my three hearts:

It's a simple layout with one heart flat, one on single dimensional foam squares and the final one on double foam squares.  I inked the edges of the cut hearts to make them pop.

I have another card which hopefully I will photograph and post later.  Off now to upload my entry to "Less is More" and then to visit the other participants.



  1. It may be simple, but it's so pretty. The other Elaine!

  2. It does seem a shame to cut up your board but it has made a beautiful card.

  6. Love this ..... so CAS yet so striking. xx

  7. This card is simply stunning, Elaine. Love the hearts, sentiment and the great color palette

  8. Wow - I peeked back and saw your masterboard. I can see how you might hesitate to cut into it - but it was worth it for this card - it is just brilliant
    Cheers, Dianne

  9. Beautiful design. Your three hearts are so pretty and they really pop off all the gorgeous white space. Fabulous card!

  10. I'm so proud of you, Elaine! You did an excellent job using your delightful master board to create these sweet hearts! This is a winner in my book!! I remember when we did master sheets a decade ago, but the magazine I first read about it in had all kinds of layouts and ideas for ways to then use the master sheet, so a person wasn't left wondering what to do with it and hating the thought of cutting it. If I can find those pages, I'll email them to you. I remember how difficult it was to make "random" images!! Hugs, Darnell

  11. I must apologise for my lack of commenting for the last few weeks during my holiday to Australia, hopefully all will be back to normal now!
    This is terrific Elaine!
    Thanks so much
