Two hearts become one

Hi there!

One of my nieces asked me to make her a wedding card for a friend that's getting married...

With the invitation available, I find it so much easier to know what the couple will love.

Elements on the invitation included kraft , cream and lace. I replaced the lace with a piece of satin ribbon, just because the lace and the dotted hearts didn't want to 'blend'  ;)

I created the hearts in my Silhouette programme. I used the rhinestone function for the dots.

The same heart was cut 3 times. For my first heart I removed the dots. For the second heart I used only the dots. (I used the heart to position the dots, and removed it once I finished the placement). For the last heart I used both the dotted heart and the heart shape without dots.

I had to put on my thinking cap for this one because I wanted to capture the sentiment in picture, which says:   "Two hearts become one"

Oh this is just gorgeous. A simple yet elegant design (though I bet very fiddly to do!), and I adore the neutral colours! Just gorgeous! x

Joe, vrou, wat meer kan ek se as net eenvoudig (alweer!!) briljant!! En die kleure is natuurlik my gunstelinge ...kraft en room ...so pragtig bymekaar!! Ek kan net dink hoe baie die ontvangers van hierdie kaartjie gaan hou!!
Dis darem so lekker as mens net ewe skielik 'n idee het wat jy weet gaan werk (met jou is dit vir elke kaartjie, met my een keer in 'n skrikkeljaar!!)

Another brilliant creation dear friend! The satin ribbon (which I thought was vellum) is gorgeous! How did you manage to get the sentiment stamped on the ribbon?

Clever as ever x 2 is to use the rhinestone feature for the dots! Never in a million years would I have thought to do this!!!

Nice touch rounding the corners of the design panel!

Absolutely beautiful card, Hannelie! The color palette is gorgeous, and I love how you made each heart a little different! Love that you chose vellum for your sentiment, too! I'm sure the newly married couple will love it!
