Inlaid Hearts with Love

Valentine's Day is just around the corner, so it was so easy to be inspired
 by pink colours and hearts. Apparently I am in a PINK fase at the moment and this is just one of my PINK cards :o)

For my card I have used two different techniques:
First one is inlaid die-cutting which I have used for the hearts in the background. 
The other technique is using Distress Inks and a stencil to make a subtle pattern on the card front. It is not easy to see, but it looks gorgeous IRL. 

The silouette of the man and woman is a die from Norwegian kaBoks. It also comes with a coordinating heart die with scallop edges. 
kaBoks is expanding to the Danish and Swedish market.

I have made the subtle background pattern by adding Distress Ink directly to my stencil. Then giving the stencil a good mist with water thereafter pressing the stencil down on the cardfront and letting it soak up the ink.

With this card I am participating in the following challenges: 

That's all for now. Have a great day.
Pia :o)

Supplies used: 


  1. This is simply stunning Pia, and would have been perfect for our challenge, but at Less is More we have a limit of five challenges which may be combined, so sadly your card will not be eligible for prizes or showcasing!
    I do hope that you will join us again!
