Heart on a string

As my little boy napped, I took the opportunity to make this card for someone I know who got engaged on Valentine's Day (no, not Lady Gaga!)
I used a digital stamp by Lizzy Love.

My blank greeting card was A5, so I used an A5 page layout in Microsoft Word. By trial and error - printing a couple of times on scrap paper - I found where to place the image so it would start on the fold of the card.
I added my wording using a text box, which enables you to place text anywhere.

Once happy with my design, I printed and folder my card.
On some patterned paper, I printed the image again and cut out the hearts - I used blue and pink paper.
I used glue dots to stick on the small hearts and to achieve dimension, foam pads for the larger hearts.
Finally, I finished it off with a simple crystal rhinestone on the middle heart and a white paper inlay.
This design could be used for weddings and anniversaries too.
