Box Full of Hearts

Hi there.  I have an anniversary card today and I saw somewhere on line a design with butterflies escaping from an open box and it gave me the idea for this card but using hearts instead.  I used a new heart design die from Impression Obsession (249-Y) which I got fairly recently, but on this card here I just embossed it, but this time I die cut it and backed it with a piece of patterned card/paper using one of a few freebies I got with an order from Crafty Individuals. 

I started by die cutting two of the heart squares from white card and attached each to the patterned piece of card.  I then decided the dimensions I wanted and cut each down for the lid and box to fit neatly on to my 6" square card base and added a piece of craft foam on each for dimension.  I decided to stamp the sentiment as though that was coming out of the box too, and used Versamark and heat embossed with WOW Silver Metallic Embossing Powder in the position I wanted and then attached the pieces for the box around it and used some of the larger hearts which came out of the die, coloured using Adirondack Pink Sherbet Ink using a blending brush, and attached each surrounding the sentiment and to fill the space within the box shape.

Thank you for visiting me here today and I'll see you again soon.

What a fun idea for a card, Pat! And what a great box you made for your pretty hearts to escape from! Every element is clearly created with love and that sediment is brilliant among the hearts! Thanks for playing! This one will be viewed a LOT on Pinterest! Hugs, Darnell

Constructing that box with the hearts flying out was a stroke of genius and so effective. An idea which I might 'case' at some point if you don't mind 😊
