Distress Oxides: Make My Heart Smile

I made this card for my and my husband's 38th anniversary. This is another example of a card that you can easily make petty quickly, but that has a big impact. This is why it's so nice to have a stack of blended Distress Oxide panels sitting around.

I blended some of my favorite Distress Oxide inks onto a panel of Neenah Solar White 80# cardstock using a blending tool, and spritzed it with water using the Tim Holtz spray bottle.

I cut out the panel using the Die-namics MFT-463 Blueprints 13 stitched rectangle die that cuts a panel 5.25" x 4". I love the beautiful stitched finished edge this die gives.

I cut the heart out of the center of the panel using the Hero Arts Nesting Hearts Infinity die set DI334.  I just love this die set! These are beautifully shaped hearts, and you get 10 different sizes, so pretty much any size you need! The heart was popped up using a piece of black craft foam that I cut using the next smaller heart die.

I die cut the sentiment out of Neenah Solar White 80# cardstock using the Simon Says Stamp SSSD111680 Heart Smile die, and adhered it to the center of the heart.

The panel was mounted onto a mat of So Silk Passion Purple cardstock and then onto a base card of Neenah Solar White 110# cardstock.

My hubby let me show this here on the blog. I hope you like it (he did).
