Happy Heart Day!

Hello, friends!  Today is one of my favorite days all year, as I love everything with hearts!  Here's a card for you on this special day.

supplies: white, Cotton Candy, pale green, and woodgrain cardstock, MFT Heart Tree die, (retired) Simon Just a Love Note sentiment and banner die, (retired) Winnie & Walter Audrey Cutaway dies

I love this Heart Tree die, used it lots last year when I got it, but I've never used the negative image it cuts as a kind of stencil to place the leaves and hearts.  I don't know what this technique is called, but since the elements sit on top of the card, it reminds me of applique in quilting.  

I cut it from kraft, pink, and green, then used the various parts to piece the elements onto the woodgrain backing, using the negative image for placement.  I thought this little sentiment from a 2012 Simon Valentine set was perfect.  

Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!

Lovely card and great use of that die. I have this one and love it. I think you might have inspired me to get it out again. Your colours are lovely and the added interest from the woodgrain paper makes it very special xx
