Take it to Heart Sympathy Card

Once I get my new Hearts Collection Framelits Die I can use them to cut out my stamped images in the Take it to Heart Stamp Set,  but for now I just used my Paper Snips to cut around the heart that I used for my sympathy card.

I started with Very Vanilla cardstock, and added a layer of Perfect Plum, and then another embossed layer of Bashful Blue cardstock.   Some Perfect Plum 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon was added for a border, and as the place for my sentiment.  My large heart was stamped onto Watercolor Paper using StazOn Jet Black Ink.  I filled in the images with a variety of Subtles Watercolor Wonder Crayons and blended them in with a Blender Pen, and then placed onto my card with dimensionals. 

The following were used:
Cardstock:  Very Vanilla #101650, Perfect Plum #101889, Bashful Blue #105120 - Watercolor Paper #122959
Stamp Sets:  Take It To Heart #125520 wood or #122522 clear (Occasions Mini), Petite Pairs #122495 wood or #122497 clear
Ink:  StazOn Jet Black #101406
Ribbon:  Perfect Plum 3/8" Taffeta #122987
Punch:  Large Oval #119855
Coloring Tools:  Subtles Watercolor Wonder Crayons #119802, Blender Pens #102845
Accessories:  Big Shot #113439, Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder #120175, Dimensionals #104430

I love this set & it is nice to see it used for something other than Valentine's day. And by changing the sentiment it could be used for any occasion. Will surely CASE this one. Thanks for sharing!
