DV #218 Love

Our challenge today at Dream Valley is Love, and we are sponsored by The Paper Shelter.

I have used their gorgeous image, Sweetheart for my card. I printed her onto Navigator paper and coloured her with copics. The dies are a combination of Spellbinders for the image layer and the green layer, and Crafters Companion for the card base itself. For the base I used double sided adhesive film to stick the pretty heart card, which was not strong enough on it’s own to form a base card, especially with all that filigree die cutting on it, onto a plain white 300 gsm card, and then put the whole thing through the Gemini…….. boy it didn’t like it!!! Had to put it through at least a dozen times in all different directions and then I still had to winkle out the die cut pieces with a pokey tool. But it has made a nice sturdy base. The sentiment came from the same paper pad as the heart paper, as did the green layer.
