Two Hearts

Another trip to the scrap box. The previous rub-on sheet has some other cool sayings, so I wanted to use them up before they were ruined. As it was, the one word I used here "love" part of it stuck to the paper funny and didn't take. The phrase on the vellum worked perfect tho and was a good complement to the xoxo stickers.

The paper is from a line called Eco-Africa which is run by native African women and is recycled from plants that are native to Africa. If you look close, you can see what looks like part of a banana skin embedded in the creamy paper. The metal heart is also from the same company. Isn't it great that something so simple as paper can inspire two cultures? The women who made this were able to better their lives from the money they made and I am able to create something very pretty.

Oh yeah, I also used my Cropidile for the eyelets. I will never go back to a hammer again if I can help it. Way cool tool-get one!


  1. This is so neat! Loved the mixed media feel!

  2. Great use of the scraps! Isn't it nice to use them. I have a ton of stuff that I need to use! Can't wait for my pile to go down.

    Love all the elements to your card! Great job!


  3. Great card. The vellum is awesome across there like that and the metal touches are divine. :0) Mel
