Avery Elle Winter 2018 Release Blog Hop!

Hello friends!

Welcome to Avery Elle's Winter 2018 Release Blog Hop!  Today I will be sharing with you a pair of cards that I made using the Embellished Heart Elle-Ments die. 

These cards were so simple to make.  First I die cut the Embellish Heart Elle-Ments die slightly off the edge of an A2-size card panel. Next, I cut strips of card stock to go behind the heart shapes.  The skinny stripe strips are 1/4" wide and the wider stripe strips are 1/2" wide. 

I adhered the card stock strips to an A2 white notecard and trimmed off any excess.  I attached the heart die cut panel using foam tape.  For the sentiment, I die cut the words from black card stock and covered the letters with Glossy Accents before adhering them to the card.  As a finishing touch, I added some clear sequins.  

I love the scallop detail on the Embellished Heart die, and this card would be so simple to replicate for the upcoming Valentine's Day holiday.  I bent up the scallop border on one of my cards so you can see the difference even that small step makes in the look of the die.  All items are available for purchase in the Avery Elle shop right now!
