Nested Hearts

I heart my Silhouette SD and these wonderful nested hearts. I think there are 8 hearts some scalloped and some plain and I just cut them out 4 times in the different colors of card stock. The card base is the largest plain heart enlarged and cut out twice. I know there is a way to weld them together but I haven't learned it yet so I just cut it out twice and scored the heart in the back about 1/2 inch from the side and used take on that part to adhere the two sides.

The Valentine stamp is a 1999 stamp from Stampa Rosa.
Necessity is the mother of invention. I wasn't sure how to photograph this heart shaped card because I think they look better standing, than lying flat. Then I saw my rusty old metal chair and it worked perfectly. This chair is in pretty bad shape but it is so comfortable I just can't bear to get rid of it.

I am happy to be home. I have been at a Lactation Specialist course all week. It was a great course and there was an amazing amount of information to be taken in.........and I was so stressed about the test at the end. It has been a while since I was in school. Have to wait to find out if I passed or not and patience is not my strong suit. If I passed I want to know but I guess if I didn't, the longer I don't know the better LOL!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a Lovely Valentines Day.

  1. So pretty!I love all the hearts layered together. I know what you mean about welding shapes, I Haven't tried it yet either but Nichol Magouirk and Kristina Werner both have good tutorials on their blogs. I think Kristina did one not too long ago on welding.


So happy you stopped by and thanks for sharing your thoughts!
