Are you guys ready for another Stuck on U Sketches Die Cut Challenge? This week’s challenge is hearts! Normally, I would have gone with a cutesy, lovey dovey theme for this challenge but lately the weather has been cold and rainy and has really put me in the mood for Fall…and more specifically, Halloween. So, I decided to create a gothic-style card. Obviously, you could use this for many different occasions but I’m going to write a little love note inside and give this to my husband on Halloween.
First, I began with a 5″x7″ card and layered it with light pink and dark red cardstock. The red cardstock was embossed with the Cuttlebug Clockworks embossing folder to give it an industrial, Steampunk look. The heart and dagger were cut from the Lovestruck cartridge and hand-altered.
I used the Martha Stewart Doily Hearts border punch to create an accent piece and layered it with light pink cardstock; the cardstock was embossed with the Cuttlebug Argyle embossing folder. The font was cut from the Happy Hauntings Cartridge.
All the cuts have been inked with dark red and black ink and the heart and dagger were popped up on foam for added dimension.
