Heart on Acetate Anniversary

Hi there.  Yet another anniversary card for friends whose anniversary was a week ago, and I also wanted to enter the challenge at  Addicted to CAS which is 'Banners'.  This card has only one banner but hopefully it will be alright for the challenge.

I decided on the cut out idea which I used on my chevron card last week, so I used my Stitched Circle die from Simon Says Stamp and then cut a frame from a snippet of white card, using the two larger dies, and this goes on the inside to neaten it up.   The acetate was cut with a plain Xcut circle die which was a little large so I cut  1/4" off  it so the frame would cover over it when glued into place on the back of the cut out.

I cut two of my Nellie Snellen hearts, one for the outside of the acetate and one to cover it on the inside, using a snippet of red card, and cut the banner sentiment also using a snippet of white card, which I tucked under the heart on top of the acetate and finished it with a silver sentiment.  The inside of the card was covered with a piece of Papermania paper from a pad which I won over at Pixie's Playground quite a while ago.  I placed a die cut heart on the back of the card too to write the message on.

I have one new follower to introduce who is Sid and you will find his blog here.   He seems to enjoy anything which includes stamps and inkiness and I'm sure he would love you to go and take a look.

That's all for now.

  12. Hi Pat, finally had a check to start catching up on some visits. I am really liking the way you are doing these circle cutouts. Most attractive, and especially so with this lovely red heart and the houndstooth check in the background. I like this idea of the acetate inlay, and you've certainly mastered the technique. Really lovely card, so pretty with the gold embossing on the banner. TFS & Hugs

  13. This is pretty Pat. I like the inset idea. Hugs Mrs A.
