Love You Card

The winter months can be so dreary, so I was very glad to create my latest card featuring a cheery and colorful quilted heart.

Aren't these colors wonderful?

I started with a basic white card and layered it with a panel of vintage-style newsprint paper. The "Love You" message is printed in black ink on white cardstock and backed with violet paper. For a decorative touch, I added strips of black & white polka-dotted ribbon and white felt rick rack.

I then adhered the quilted heart to the bottom corner of the card and adorned it with a tiny white button.

The colors contrast nicely against the black and white -- and really make that colorful heart stand out!!

This charming heart was given to me compliments of the Etsy shop ArtFromTheCabin. Donna's shop features beautiful acrylic and watercolor paintings, cards and home decor items. Be sure to give her shop a visit soon!
