Designer Cuts


Inside of card

Blushing Bride Envelope that I stamped with two hearts from the Take it to Heart Set
The Designer Cuts cards and envelopes set from the Occasions Mini Catalog, are really beautiful laser-cut cards that are easy to embellish.  They come with Blushing Bride envelopes and they are perfect not only for Valentine cards, but also wedding, anniversary, or bridal shower.  

I embellished my card by cutting a piece of Real Red cardstock with one of the larger hearts from the Framelits Dies Hearts Collection.  I layered it directly behind the laser-cut heart, so you get the red peeking through the heart design in the front, and the full heart when you open the inside of the card.  I also added some new blushing Bride Smooch Spritz, and like the sample card in the Occasions Catalog, I also added a Twitterpated Designer Button and some Cherry Cobbler/White Baker's Twine. 

My sentiment at the bottom is from the Delightful Dozen stamp set, and I added a small heart cut from the Fashionable Hearts Embosslits Die.  This embosslits die has 5 different heart shapes, so I saved the other four that were cut, and placed them in a small container to use at another time.
