Make it Monday: From my heart to yours!

Hello friends! It’s strange to think that the last 3 months have passed in a Covid lockdown blur with lots of online shopping, zooming to catch up with family and friends and for church, and receiving many card orders through my Etsy shop: 

Lockdown restrictions have started to ease and I’m excited to begin living the new ‘normal’ which will include sharing with you once again 🙂 This card comes from my heart to yours!

I designed these cards using some retired products – the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper and the Heartfelt stamp set:

You can still purchase the coordinating Heart Punch Pack

One sheet of the paper gave me all these hearts! 

The smaller heart punch is for the paper hearts and the scalloped heart punch is for the cardstock; this colour is Coastal Cabana

The sentiment From my heart to yours is from the retired stamp set and stamped here in Calypso Coral ink:

I used Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue to attach the paper and white sentiment hearts to the cardstock hearts: 

And here’s what the brightly coloured hearts look like when they’re ready to adhere to the front of the cards: 

Embossing is still one of my favourite additions to cards and I tried these 3 patterns – Tasteful Textile (top one), Hammered Metal (middle one), and Painted Texture (bottom one): 

I decided to go with Painted Texture

The paper hearts are adhered first: 

Followed by the sentiment hearts which are popped up on adhesive foam dots for added dimension: 

MEANWHILE … My hair hasn’t been cut for more than 3 months and was driving me crazy so I recently gave it a 4 centimetre trim! 

Thanks so much for taking some time out of your busy day to visit me here ? Please ask if you have any questions about these cards, or anything else you’ve seen me post, and enjoy the rest of your week! Megan xo
