You make my heart sing!

I started this card before Christmas and didn't have time to finish it until now.  I wanted to try my hand at the rectangle frames that Becca from Amazing Paper Grace creates.  Here is her tutorial on making a rectangle frame with corner punches.  

This card is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4 to make a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card.  I dont' know the name of the heart punch I used for my frame.  I will have to make sure I write on them with a sharpie marker in the future.  It is an orange punch.

The Sweetheart gromlet is from We R Memory Keepers.  I pushed back the prongs so I could hand it from the organdy ribbon.

This is the inside of my card.  The sentiment is from the Dancing Notes stamp set (retired).  I used Fun Framed Dimensional Elements at the bottom and daubbed the heart border with holiday red ink.

I think this is the card I am going to give my DH this Valentine's Day.  

Materials used: (All products CTMH unless noted)

Paper - black cs, holiday red cs, white daisy cs, musical notes dp (unknown)

Stamp set - Dancing Notes (retired)

Ink - holiday red, black, white pigment

Accessories - heart dimensional element, holiday red organdy ribbon, black hemp, designer gromlet (We R Memory Keepers), heart punch (EK Success), black crystal stickers (Mark Richards), fun framed dimensional elements

There is only one day left for you to leave a comment on this post to win some blog candy.  I will be drawing a name with radom number generator on my dad's birthday, Thursday, January 15th.

I have been working on taking pics of the House Mouse stamps I am willing to sell.  I have duplicates and ones I just don't think I will use a lot.  It my first time through, so I am not parting with a lot of them yet.  I will put something at the top of my blog when I have a slideshow for you to view.

Happy Stamping!

Very cool. Love the way you made the frame with the heart coming out. The name of the punch is wrought iron.
