The Cutting Cafe
It's Inspiration Time at the Cafe, and we were asked to work with one of the files below from The Cutting Cafe store....
Valentine Mini Sentiments Background
Fun with Hearts Printable Stamp Set 
Valentine Window Card Tops Templates Cutting Files
Heart Lace Shaped Card Template Cutting Files

I chose to work with the Heart Lace Shaped Card Template Cutting Files another fun file that I was lucky enough to get to play with!!! There's so many possibilities with this one, just as the other files at The Cutting Cafe! I saved one cut out for my stencil box for another project down the line :) 
I used my Silhouette Cameo for this card. I originally set out to cut by hand, but half way through, I changed my mind lol Which is another thing that's great about Regina's files...you receive the PDF, SVG, WPC and in some cases MTC formats. So whatever your cutting method, you're covered!! 
For my project though, I cut out the Large Heart Lace Shaped Card and the Large Heart Lace cutout so that I could decorate the top part and then affix it to my card shape. I started with some red cardstock from my stash, but just wasn't feeling it, and then tried adding some Silk Iridescent Magenta Ink, and it really done a pretty cool bronze effect to it oddly enough lol but then I decided to add some Tiara Glitz Stickles and as you can see, it turned out to be a really sparkly red/pink color, so I stopped there! I didn't want to push my luck by playing with anything else lol 
Once that was dry, I added Glossy Accents to each heart, as you can see below. Well hopefully you can. The flash mirrored off a few of them. Added my sentiment that came with one of my La La Land Digi Images and voila! Quick and easy! The longest part of this card was the drying process on each stage!
