Hearts Twofer

It's a very windy, and I mean windy day full of rain and gloom
and a perfect day to be in my creative room.

I have lots of things I should be working on
but decided since it is Sunday I could take the day off
and have a little fun with a challenge!

When I saw the new Twofer challenge was hearts
I immediately thought of a new Tutti Nesting die set I had
just received last week and created with that.

The first card I die cut 3 hearts and made them into birthday balloons.
I drew the strings on and a added a twine bow to 'tie' them together.

For the second card, using the same die, I cut four
and made this card into a Valentine....
the inside sentiment says 'everything'.

So that is my twofers for the challenge.

Supplies used for card #1:
Spellbinders HemStitch Oval
Lawn Fawn Wavy Banner Sayings & Die

Supplies used for Card #2:
Candy Hearts Embossing Folder
Flourishes Love Sweet Love Sentiment

For Both Cards:

What a beautiful twofer you've created here! I love those tiny cross-stitched hearts and they look so pretty in that oval with a little bow! Love the embossing on the 2nd card - it takes me back to my childhood when those candies were the rage :)

Oh, wow! You totally aced this challenge, Diane! Different designs, different occasions, super cute cards! I use my Tutti stitched hearts all the time, but didn't realize they have cross stitch hearts. That looks like fun!
