Follow Your Heart

This is going to be another busy week.  Luckily I had time this weekend to make the cards I needed for this month's Stampin' Up card swap.  They are due this Thursday so again I am waaay early - LOL.  This month's theme is Soft Subtles.  There are 9 people in our exchange.  I made 10 of these because I like even numbers.

Since this is for my Stampin' Up swap - all of the supplies are Stampin' Up.  I used the polka dot embossing folder on vellum paper for the top half of the card.  I also used a layer of vellum paper over the sentiment to create a little heart shaped window.  The stamp set is retired but I love it and it fit perfectly in my heart window.

Stamps: SU Whimsical Words
Paper: so saffron, rose red, certainly celery, shimmery white
Ink:  chocolate chip
Accessories:  polka dot embossing folder, eyelet border punch, small heart punch, hearts set Sizzlits

I'm including this in the following challenges:

Bugaboo - Emboss it
Speedy the Cat - Embossing
Stampin B's - Old / New
Old - Eyelet Border Punch & Polka Dot Embossing Folder
New - Hearts Set Sizzlets 
IDIC (I Did it Creations) - Vellum

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card!
