Paris Travel Love Heart-Shaped Card

It is easy to make shaped cards using a Spellbinder die. For this Heart Shaped Valentine Card I cut cardstock, scored the cardstock & folded the card at the score line. Placed Spellbinder Heart die with part of the heart edge off the edge of the fold. Used Sizzix to cut the heart and by placing the top plate so that it was not over the edge ran it thru and cut.

Used Spellbinder heart die for layer on front. Used Tim Holtz: paper distresser & Distress inks on heart layer.  Stamped TH  Eiffel Tower & fussy cut it out. Die cut the boxes to resemble hat boxes using TH die. Stamped TH sentiment 'i love you' and a Paris stamp.
