Rustic Hearts

Hello friends,

Valentine’s day is around the corner and with that in mind we have a new challenge for DD_Heartsyou at Double D Challenges. To celebrate this day of love our theme is “Hearts”. The mood board is so pretty, I am sure you will find lots of inspiration to create a card for the Double D challenge.

I love the rustic and shabby look of the hearts, the neutral colors and the textures in the inspiration picture. With that in mind I decided to create my card with kraft paper for a rustic look. I added a piece of burlap on the base layer for texture and then a pretty trellis and heart die cut. I lifted some of the hearts with mirror tape for dimension. I added some pearls, flowers and wax cord  bows as embellishments. The final touch is a die cut sentiment. Hope you like my take on the challenge.

I entered my card in the following challenges:
