Tutti Designs - Hearts and Love

It's my turn to share a new, inspirational creation using dies from the Tutti Designs Store.   I know Christmas is only 1 WEEK away but WOW! ... have you seen the November Release with all the beautiful heart dies?  I just couldn't help myself and had to create a card using one of these gorgeous dies as well as a swirly sentiment die from the previous release.

From the November release I have used the 'Love Butterfly Frame' TUTTI-201

and interlocked the October Release 'Swirly Love' TUTTI-223 sentiment die.

Ssshhh!  Don't tell hubby ... but this is his Valentine's Day card!  LOL

I just love all the swirls and flourishes on these dies and I'm always thrilled with how easily they die cut!  BUT, if by chance you find you have issues die cutting or pieces stuck in your dies, Tutti Designs also offers a few tools to help with those issues.  You can find the Metal Adapter Plate HERE and a set of Poke Tools HERE.

After embossing the red panel for the background of my card, I felt it was a little too 'strong' and decided to add a vellum panel to add a touch of softness.  This vellum panel is adhered to the top using two little glue dots which are hidden from the front by simply covering those two areas with sequins.  I've left the bottom of this vellum panel unattached (as shown in photo above)

These two dies are already so beautiful on their own, but I wanted to add a little touch of sparkle & shine which I achieved using sequins and Stickles.  Did you notice how I actually intertwined these two dies ... a sign to hubby that our lives will be intertwined forever!  
I know ... sorry ... TMI ... lol!

Well that does it for me today!

This is fabulous, Darlene! The layer of vellum is just lovely over the red embossed panel, and the dies you selected are absolutely stunning! Thanks for sharing your work at Jo's Scrap Shack this week.

Beautiful romantic card! The vellum adds just the right touch! Thanks for sharing with us at Scrapy Land Challenges!

A classic, Darlene! The "Love" is bold enough to keep it distinct from the delicate heart. So many ways you could use that heart, too. Different colors and this would make a fabulous wedding card. Nice idea to soften with the vellum. I don't use my vellum enough. I do have a metal plate and use it for some of my more intricate dies. Beautiful!
