AAA Cards - #83 Shape Your Love

So much love going on in blogland at the moment! And AAA Cards is not one to buck a trend, so our new challenge is all themed round love with the optional twist of making your card a different shape from your usual go to.

I like to challenge myself so I put my thinking cap on and came up with this idea to embrace the optional twist:

Not only a different shape to my usual square card, but with a projecting heart to boot! So simple to make too - right up my street then! Two stacked die cut hearts, a stamped tiny heart and a love sentiment are the main components of this card.

As a final touch I punched the bottom corners to reflect the curved top of the hearts.

Stamps: HLS, Rainy Days
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black
Paper: SU, Candy Cane Lane
Die: Xcut, homespun heart
Punch: crafts too

Loads more inspiration can be found here on the AAA Cards blog. We not only have Sharon from frommycraftdesk Guest Designing but our sponsor Kylie from Happy Little Stampers is joining in too. Just brimming with ideas!!

Thanks for looking today, it's been so great having you visit.  And keep crafting!
