Four Hearts Love



I went to sleep with this idea in my head, and I ended up dreaming about it all night. So of course, I just had to get this stamped today before I forgot everything. LOL

I inked up the Spanish Script backgrounder from Cornish Heritage Farms and stamped it on a piece of scrap white cardstock. The scalloped heart was cut out from this scrap after the ink had dried. I then cut out three more scalloped hearts and arranged them on the brown cardstock. I added a button to one heart, the word "Love" to another heart, and for the last one, I embossed it with a Swiss Dots embossing folder. To make the embossed dots pop out, I smooshed a white pigment ink pad across the top of that heart.

The "Love" sentiment comes from the new Sympathy Expressions stamp set that was recently released over at Cornish Heritage Farms. It just goes to show how versatile that set can be. It doesn't just have to be for sympathy cards. :-)
