Double D - Anything with a Heart

 Dear Ones~

This is the third day in a row where we have had sunshine all day long. It's the first time since maybe early November. Gotta love Michigan weather. Today over at Double D our new challenge is to make anything with a heart. Here is our Mood Board:

And this is my card:

 I was inspired by the photo on the top left. So I brought out my wood grain embossing folder and went to town. This card is for our son for Valentine's Day. Those hearts are a die from Stampin' Up. It cuts the heart shapes and also those little thin lines around them. So I cut them in black and inlaid in the openings. The red hearts show through from the red layer of card stock below. I really love that die. I sponged the wood grain embossing with a little Warm Cocoa Ink for dimension. The black heart is a die from the GKD A Little Love Layering Stencil Bundle. It was cut 4 times and layered up with some gold twine stitched in the middle.

The Ingredients:
GKD Kraft, Black Onyx and Red Velvet Card Stock
Tim Holtz Lumber Embossing Folder
SU Many Hearts Die Set
GKD A Little Love Layering Stencil Bundle 
GKD Black Embossing Powder
GKD Warm Cocoa Ink

If you head on over to the  Double D Challenge Blog and play along, you could win this adorable die. I just love it!!  And don't forget to check out all the beautiful cards the other designers have created for your inspiration.

Until next time, here's celebrating your Creative Muse.  


  1. Sweet card lovely colours.. love that glorious heart image die wording. x

  2. Really a perfect card for a 'guy' and created beautifully, you certainly have captured the mood board!! We have had a lot of sunshine this winter which is unusual for here, but I am NOT complaining (except it shows all the dust lol)!!

  3. What a sweet take on the inspiration panel Judy. Your card is adorable!

  4. Perfect for Josh! This is a great masculine card! Love the wood grain background and Gina's love die--waiting for it to be sold separately lol Yay to sunshine! It was almost 50 degrees yesterday....I am sure it is about 30 degrees cooler this morning, but lots of sunshine--yes, it makes all of the difference!

  5. This is awesome Judy and perfect for a son! It's difficult to make 'manly' Valentine cards but you've certainly succeeded with this beauty!! What a clever design ... love it! Hugs and Good Health to you my friend!

  6. Fantastic Valentine, Judy! Love the pop of bright color against the tree bark. Perfect card for your son.

  7. Wonderful design. I love the wood grained embossing and all the hearts. Great take on the mood board.

  8. Terrific design for Josh or any masculine card. The black outlined hearts make it pop. Great on the wood grain.

  9. Such a fun, masculine Valentine's Day card, and that's hard to do. I'm happy to see that someone else succumbed to that GKD bundle. I bought it just for that love die. lol You used it wonderfully here. Stay safe!

  10. Such a fun take on that photo in the mood board, Judy! Great card!
