Twofer Love ...

Good evening from a wet and windy Oxfordshire ... I hope somebody out there is enjoying blue skies and sunshine!

Today I was inspired to create a couple of cards ... same supplies, different designs for different (although similar) events.

A Valentine card on the left and a wedding card on the right - both created using scraps of prints made using a gelli plate.

The Valentine card:

I began by stamping and heat embossing a piece of card with a small heart background stamp.  I die cut two hearts from a gelli plate print and then stitched them to the base before adding a heat embossed sentiment and adhering the panel to the card base.

The Wedding card:

For this card I used the same heart die set but this time used a smaller die as well to create two open hearts that I could intertwine. 

I used:
Sizzix Nesting Heart Dies #2
UNIKO  - Simply Said and Scattered Polka Heart Background Stamp
Wow White Embossing Powder and Gold

I'm entering the following challenges:

Twofer Card Challenge #2

TIME OUT Challenge #102 - inspired by the heart in the photograph.



  1. Great cards Elaine, love the texture on these hearts, Cathy x

  2. Two beauties Elaine. And the added bonus of using left overs too. Thanks for joining in with the current Uniko challenge.

  3. Great use of those snippets, Elaine! Your stitched hearts are great and I love the intertwined hearts for a wedding card! Thank you for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #2!! Hugs, Darnell

  4. Two great cards, they both look fantastic x

  5. I sure wish we had sunshine and blue skies here instead of the six inches of snow that we got! Hope your weather improves soon (and ours too, lol). Two wonderful cards, Elaine.
