Using all the hearts in SU's Happy Hearts set has been fun. For CAS treatment, I found that using multiple patterned hearts on one card got busy-looking really fast, so I paired the solid heart with a patterned one, and added a self-adhesive heart accent from Hero Arts just because I could. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.
Then I decided to use some colored card bases. The next card's colors match better IRL...the shades of ink are much closer than they appear.
There's a joke in that last line, but I haven't had enough coffee yet to find it. Sorry. It's Monday. I'm full of excuses.
Saving my favorite for last...TA DA!
Look at all that white space that's pink but still called white space. Look at how well the border punch coordinates with the patterned heart. Look at the focal point (how can you not when the colors, the placement, and the visual triangle created by the two hearts and the sentiment magnetically attract your eye?).
Hope you enjoyed my variations on a two-heart theme! My heart is filled with joy this week. Christmas is definitely my favorite time of the year.
