Happy hump day to you all, Tonya here with a layout and a card to share with you. I have so many great photos from this summer that I am just dying to scrapbook. I reached into my Simple Stories stash and pulled out one of my favorite collections...Vintage Bliss, then found a photo and went to work (Ha! If that is what you call it!).
I started by creating the base of my page in my Silhouette software. I knew that I was wanting to place strips of patterned paper behind a large cut out shape. I opted to go with a heart on this layout.
I traced the open heart onto the green card stock base and then covered the heart with varying strips of patterned paper. When I adhered the woodgrain piece over the top I wanted it to stand out a bit so I adhered it using a bunch of 3D foam squares.
As you can see above I also cut the word "sweetest" out and then backed the negative space with a monotone patterned paper.
Finishing touches with a little bit of clustering of embellishments.
I hand stitched with aqua around the heart and then machine stitched in white around the outer edge of the woodgrain paper.
I also created a card that utilizes the positive space from the die cutting of the word "sweetness".
This was a pretty quick and easy card. Love the cute little banner made using the chipboard banner and the little flower stickers!
