Hearts and Hugs

Hey there, friends! Its Rebekah here sharing a card I made using the Flicker Heart Die from Memory Box and the Avery Elle Simply Said Love Die!

For this card, I used the die over an entire card panel, shifting it slightly each time before I ran it threw my die cutter. I saved all of the heart die cuts because I used them a little later on in my process.

I used foam tape to pop up the panel and I mounted it on a piece of Kraft cardstock. I then colored a few of the hearts with a marker. I placed them inside the heart panel here and there.

The Avery Elle Hugs Die comes with the background for the word 'hugs' and I cut it three times from white cardstock and glued them together. I also cut it once with red cardstock and adhered it using Multi Matte Medium, sifting it a little to the side so it could slightly be seen behind the white cardstock. For the word 'hugs' itself, I cut it from black cardstock and black craft foam and glued them together. I highly recommend using the Multi Matte Medium for this process because it will give you time to move the pieces to get them aligned perfectly and it drys clear. If you happen to get it anywhere it does not belong, don't worry! It will not be seen!  I then covered 'hugs' with glossy accents to make it really pop!

For the mats around the die cut heart panel I uses My Favorite Things Stitched Line Frames. I cut it once with black and once with kraft. I added the kraft colored frame over top of the black.I wanted to be sure to incorporate black somewhere else on the card to tie into the sentiment.

Here are a few other dies that could be used in a similar manner.
