Quick Christmas Cards.....3 hearts in One.

Hello, hello,
 
Christmas is closing in and it is about time to start on those Christmas Cards. So here I want to share an idea for a Quick & Easy Christmas card. With this method it is also easy to make 3 or 4 cards in one go.
 
 
For this card I have used the Sizzix hearts dies - in total 3 different die sizes.
 
Before die cutting I placed the dies within eachother with the backside up. This way I could tape them all together with some washi tape. This makes it possible for me to die-cut 3 heart pieces at once. And it makes it is easy to produce 3 or 4 cards. As I am only using 3 sizes I ended up with a total of 3 cards.
 
Die-cut the (together taped) hearts out of 3 pieces of pattern paper. The pattern paper should be choosen so they match well together.
 
After die-cutting take the different heart pieces and decide on the mix & match of them. All that is left now is to adhere them to the card. For my card I decided to tape the heart directly on to the card base.

 
To finish of the "3 hearts in One" I added a little gold heart and drew a dashed gold line around the heart.

The sentiment is from Hero Arts and stamped with my absolute favorite gold ink. This ink is so rich and glittery - perfect gold look!
 
Below you can see the 3 cards I made out of my die-cut "3 hearts in One".

 
With these cards I am participating in A Blog Named Hero's Challenge
 "Game, Set, Match"
 
I am also showing the cards in the Simon Wednesday Challenge.
 
Enjoy your day :)
