I create handmade cards for a living so you'd think that my card box would have a selection of anniversary cards. NOT!  I needed one this week and NOTHING!  Not one.  

I needed fresh inspiration so I turned to a sketch challenge – CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge #156


 Case This Sketch #156

Instead of placing my sentiment at the bottom, like the sketch suggests, I used the Hearts Border Punch in the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper.   Once my border was created I saved the little hearts.  Read on….

The stacked hearts were punched from the Love Blossoms Designer Paper Stack –  except for the heart at the top.  The top heart was punched from Blushing Bride cardstock and I used the small heart image from the Bloomin' Love stamp set to create a random pattern.  

The small, wood heart comes from the Love blossoms Embellishment Kit.  I topped it with one of the small hearts that were left over from the border punch.  The remaining hearts went inside the card for confetti. 

 I had to stick my anniversary sentiment somewhere so I used the Word Window punch with the greeting from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.

Hearts are a universal symbol. They can be used to represent everything from love to sympathy.   Does your paper crafting artillery include a heart punch? If not, then you may want to consider adding the Sweetheart Punch or the Confetti Hearts Border Punch to your order in my online store.  I offer great REWARDS.  Not only will you receive Frequent Buyer points but I'll send you my Featured Project PDF Tutorial – Label Flap Double Gate Fold Card – for free.  No minimum order required!
