Wedding Hearts (Larger) - by request

I had a request from a blog reader to alter the four wedding hearts design I posted in June (here is a LINK to that post) to better fit a slightly larger card (5 1/2 x 8 1/2). She wants to use it for a special wedding card. Even with the new update to the Design Studio Software I can't make this an "adjustable" design because the elements I used to create it must be rotated (at this time, it is not possible to change the rotation of an element within a selection box).

So I enlarged two of the hearts and fit the four together again for a new card front. There are gaps between the hearts and I used some other shapes from the Wedding cart to fill them in so you only need the one cartridge to cut this design.

Here is the card - with no embellishments added. I cut the design from metallic silver cardstock.

If you take care in the placement of the paper for the cut and you also are very careful as you remove it from the mat and save the off cuts you can create a second card like this one - the design can be used vertically or horizontally

If you don't add back the center pieces from the cut you can have a card with a small opening as shown below (sorry for the odd difference in color in the photo)

You could add some writing, a stamp or an embellishment in this space - here is a photo with a chipboard accent added (many thanks to another online friend for sending me a bundle of goodies including a set of these yesterday). Keep this card simple or add more sparkle and embellishments - so many possibilities!

I hope you enjoy making cards using this design - I'd love to see some of them when you are finished! You can always contact me at
