Another Designer Cuts Card

I really love the Designer Cuts Cards and Evelopes Set.  I posted a card a few days ago using one of the laser cut images, and today I wanted to show you a card made with the Heart image.

The card base is Very Vanilla, and as you can see the laser cut image is really delicate and doesn't need a lot of extra embellishment.  To add some color, I cut a piece of Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper (from the now retired Sale-a-bration products) with a Heart from the Hearts Collection Framelits Die.  This was placed behind the image and you can see how nicely the color shows thru.  For an added bonus, when you open the card, the Heart that is on the inside adds a nice touch.  I cut a few butterflies with the Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die, and added some pearls for a bit of embellishment.  Some Pool Party Baker's Twine was added to the top of the heart, along with a Twitterpated Designer Button. 

For additional color, I sponged some Pool Party ink around the edges on the front of the card.  It adds just a touch of color, and blends in really nice with my Designer Series Paper.  Now, instead of using one of the Blushing Bride envelopes that comes with the Set, I will use a Very Vanilla envelope instead. 

Again, these cards are so easy to make, and the possibilities are endless for what you can use them for. 

The following were used:
Card & Envelope Set:  Designer Cuts #125414 (Occasions Mini)
Designer Series Paper:  Everyday Enchantment (retired from Sale-a-bration)
