An open heart

I haven't introduced my newest follower to you. She is Sonja and lives in Slovenia. On her blog is a travelogue from when she visited San Francisco that is just wonderful. I felt like I was on the trip with her. Since I've never been to California, this was a wonderful tour for me. I hope you will pop in and say hello to her. https://oldpunca.blogspot.com/

This is a gorgeous card we made at a Stampin' Up class last month. It is so clever to make and used SU dies. The scalloped die is the outline. The pink heart is embossed, then die cut up to the edge so the heart will open. The white hearts are also die cut and glued to just the heart part. The inside has a stamped sentiment as well as inside the card. I think this is my favorite card this year for Valentines' Day.




Be kind to one another.

  15. Hi Brenda,
    what a very gorgeous card and such a beautiful design too.
    Love this idea.
    I made a card recently with a handbag on the front that opened and never thought of doing the same with a heart.
    Thank you for the inspiration.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  16. Oh, I'm so glad Sonja found you, Brenda! She is a doll! Her travelogue was so thorough! I can't believe all the things they managed to cover in their time here and it was such a pleasure to have her visit the Playhouse and go out for lunch. Crafty friends are the best, as we well know!

    I think I love this Valentine the best, too! It is gorgeous and so detailed with the embossing and the outline heart overlay! The fact that it opens is such a bonus treat!! Oof, where did this week go? Enjoy the weekend and I hope it is warmer for you! Miss you! Hugs, Darnell xxoo
