Tutti Designs - All we need is LOVE!

Happy Sunday Friends!
Today I'm sharing a card of LOVE using a die from the fabulous Tutti Designs Store.
With Valentine's Day right around the corner and wedding season really not that far off, I decided to do a classic black, white & red creation that could be used for either occasion!  Or a spouses birthday for that matter!
 I've used this beautiful Love Heart die from our November release as my focus today!
No automatic alt text available.
 My first thought was to simply cut it twice (from red and white) then just simply offset the two dies for my focus image.  Which is a beautiful design in itself ... 

 But then after some rethinking, I thought it would be even prettier if I cut the hearts from the red die cut panel and adhered them to the white panel before mounting it to my black background.  YES ... I like this idea even better ... what do you think?

You could use just about any background die you have in your collection ... or simplify it even more by just using a solid black background as your anchor.   Today I chose to use the Sue Wilson Indian Ocean Collection #CED10011 from the Dies R Us Store.   A few little pearls ... or in this case Nuvo crystal drops, and your card is ready for giving.

OH and I forgot to mention, I did POP UP my Love Heart by simply adding a little dimensional tape behind each heart and 2 narrow strips behind the word.

Please be sure to pop over to the
and check out all of these fabulous dies.

Oh, yes, I love your idea with the red hearts! Beautiful border and fabulous pop against the black. You're so good with the Nuvo drops. I'm really hit or miss with mine, but yours are absolutely perfect!
