Cards - DT project for Paige Evans + Silhouette

Hi there friends,

Today I'm back with a couple of cards I've made for Paige Evans + Silhouette! Since it's Valentine's Day soon, I thought I'd make something with LOVE theme. Not specifically for Valentine's Day because I myself don't celebrate it, but any occasion really where love is involved!

I went with the beautiful Oh My Heart collection this time because I haven't used it in awhile! For the first card I've used the Hearts Wreath cut file (ID: #241003). I scaled it down to fit on an A2 card front and cut it twice in slightly different sizes from white textured card stock. One of them I backed with different patterned papers, the other one I just kept all white without any backing.

I made an A2 top folding card base from heavy weight white card stock and glued an A2 size (4.25x5.50") piece of patterned paper on it.

I adhered the larger wreath to a piece of minty green patterned paper and fussy cut around it, to have a solid panel that I then popped up with foam adhesive. I then glued the smaller wreath on top of this too.  

I  picked out a die cut from the ephemera pack and adhered it to my wreath panel with 3d foam adhesive. I had a couple of fussy cut flowers left from a previous project, I tucked these behind the die cut and glued them down. To finish off my card I added a rose gold ampersand chipboard. A bit random I know, but I like the way it looks :). 

I also made a coordinating envelope from patterned paper. I've used the envelope cut file from the Envelope Gift Mini Album (ID: #240883) cut file set for this, I just sized it to a little larger than my A2 card. 

For my second card I chose the Pie Chart Heart cut file (ID: #219822). I backed the openings with several different pink patterned papers, then I cut off the right side of the heart. Again, I made an A2 top folding card base and adhered the same size of patterned paper panel on it. I love this paper and I haven't used it on any layout yet if you can believe it!

I used some 3D foam adhesive to adhere the heart to my card base, then I tucked some die cut flowers from the ephemera pack, as well as some fussy cut flowers, under the heart. I found this Hey Sugar heart die cut in the ephemera pack too and I thought it would be perfect for a sentiment. I popped this up with 3D foam adhesive too. 

I wanted to add a little something to finish off my card and decided that the super adorable heart charms will do the trick! I've been obsessed with eyelets again lately, so I added one to the die cut and hung the little charms from that hole. 

I created a coordinating envelope using the above mentioned cut file for this card too. This I had to scale up quite a bit because the Hey Sugar piece hangs off the card base.

This is it for today, I hope I could inspire you in some little way!
Thanks for stopping by!
I'll be back with a layout shortly!
