3 more card ideas with patterned papers + dies

Hi crafty friends, as some of you might know, I am recovering from a gynae surgery, so crafting is on hold for now. There are times when I just can't stand it and will do some watercoloring and I have also asked the help of my little one with some die cutting etc. But overall nothing exciting happening on the crafty front here these days. :(

So, I decided to share some older cards I had created but somehow missed sharing. :)

All these use the Simple Stories Happy Hearts 6 x 8 inch papers that came with Simon Says Stamp Feb 2022 card kit and dies from Spellbinders. I had also used my Brother Scan and Cut for cutting out the shapes, but that is something that can be done by fussy cutting with a pair of good scissors :-) On all the cards today I used the tiny hearts as my embellishments. These were all die cut using one of the dies from My Favorite Things Tag Builder die set. I shared 3 different cards using these same goodies way back in March. How time flies!

Enough said, let's dive in.

Card 1

For this card, I used the inside part of the frame from Sketched Florals die and added embossing details with Spreading Love folder on top. The card front was also embossed (with an older Fun Stampers Journey embossing folder called Love Stripes. I think the next best thing could be Spellbinders Diagonal Lines slimline folder, so I will link it below.) Yes - two embossing details, but love how it works together.

Rest is just assembly. I think that is self explanatory, right? :)

Card 2

Die cut and assemble - nothing fancy here, except for one thing. I found that the cassette background was far too busy and it did not let the gramophone stand out. So I layered a piece of pink colored vellum in between to mute out the background a little bit. One of my favorite tricks while using busy patterns.

Card 3

Lots of patterned paper and glitter paper fussy cutting with this one, especially the little itty-bitty flowers, but totally worth it. Don't you think? :)

Tell me which one is your favorite of the three. I am curious. :)
