Double Hearts Wedding Card

I'm determined this year to get my scrap pile of papers down to one basket or less. As you saw the double heart wedding guest book from Monday's post, I thought I'd share how I made this double heart wedding card. 

It's so sweet you can change the color scheme and create if for Valentine's day, too!

What you'll need to create this card:

Artphilosphy Cricut Cartridge (CTMH)
Celebration Stamp Set from CTMH)
Then you'll need three layers of card stock
a piece of 1/2 ribbon
border punch - EK Success

The card is 5.5 x 8.5 piece of gray flannel card stock
The first layer (purple and gray) is 3 3/4 x 3 inches
1.5 x 3" black piece of card stock
3 x 4 inch piece of white or white designer paper (I used a piece from a black and white scrap pack I got from Oriental trading)
Foam Dimensional

You'll also need a few scrap pieces of gray wool, gray flannel, and moonstruck (dk purple or your choice of color)

I cut out three hearts: 2 1/2  inches, 1 3/4 inches, and 1 inch 

I used the celebrations stamp and black ink and stamped the banner stamp and "Celebrate" onto a piece of gray flannel card stock then cut out around it. 

You'll want to score your 5.5 x 8.5" piece of gray flannel card stock in half (4 1/4) and fold to make the card. 

Layer the 3 3/4 x 3 inch piece on the far side first. 
Then take your black 1.5 x 3 piece of card stock and punch using a border punch. 
Attach it to the 4" side of your 3 x 4 white design card stock
wrap a piece of 1/2 inch ribbon around it by the border end and secure in the back with adhesive
Next you'll want to position and attach the 3 x 4 piece on the card. 
Place your largest heart down first. Then your smaller two hearts. I used foam dimensionals on the back of the two smaller hearts to make them stand out. 
Then add your Celebrate banner!

All done!

If you make one, I'd love to see your creation!
