I just loved the tumbling hearts effect and thought that they would make a great background or even a mask to use to create an embossing technique. I imported the image in to my CraftRobo software, copied and pasted the hearts 3 more times, overlaid them, merged/welded them together to create a complete background and here's the card I made using this background ....
I have layered 2 of the lush roses papers on top of each other to create my background and then placed the hearts on top. I have secured the hearts in place with a frame (printed on to Safmat) and a band across my card .....
The frame and sentiment were printed on to Safmat and then I used them on the matching papers to keep some continuity and also to show what you can do with just 2 papers! The band was made using some jute ribbon and one of the paper designs, finished off with some flowers and the sentiment.
I then used the hearts, which were left over from the background, inked the edges and placed then randomly around the cut out hearts background (another sneaky way of securing the background too!).
