Tutti Designs - Love Forever

Hello my friends!

 Today I'm filling in for DT Member Debbie over on the Tutti Designs Blog, who like so many right now, is down with the flu!  We wish her a speedy recovery.  What fun to create another new, inspirational creation using dies from the Tutti Designs Store.   With Valentine's Day right around the corner and all the gorgeous heart dies available in the November release, that is the direction I went in today using the Doves In Love die as my main focus.

No automatic alt text available.

For my sentiment I have used some of the newest dies which are the many word dies available in the store in the December Release.  
Today's choice as you see are: LOVE & FOREVER

Image may contain: textNo automatic alt text available.There are actually 20 different word die sets available at the store and they each come in two sizes!  Giving you a wonderful assortment of ways you can personalize your creations.

Be sure to 'check them out'!

For today's focus, I wanted the doves to be white so I die cut my 'Doves in Love' twice ... once in red and again in white.  Then using my swivel craft knife I simply cut away the doves from the center and positioned them over the red die cut panel... off setting them just slightly.  Then I simply cut the 'leaves/branches' that were left inside the heart and now I will have this beautiful scalloped heart that I can use on another creation.

A touch of Red Stickles on the heart elements of the doves and my card is ready to share!

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

Those doves are so beautiful and they'd be pretty on a wedding card, too, but I just love the red and white you did here to make a perfect Valentine. Such gorgeous paper, and I also really like the distressing. Guess I just love it all over!
