Always with Jenny Alia


Hi, it's Jenny posting today with a new card inspired by this week's Keep it Krafty challenge.  This turned out to be a much simpler card than what I had envisioned but adding more seemed to take away something, so I left it simple.


I started by layering background papers.  I used a 5.5" square kraft card for the card base and cut the stitched pattern using the Square Stitch Nesting Set die.  I cut a piece of white card stock to a 5.25" square and distressed the edges. I topped this with a smaller red 4.75" square layer before adding two more layers cut with the Pierced Stacker # 3 die.  


Using the die as a stencil I used two colors of distress ink to color the smaller Pierced Stacker.   The larger pierced stacker was ebmossed using the Diamonds and Starburst Embossing plate.  I added a neutral distress ink to the plate before embossing.

The heart was paper pieced.  It was cut with white paper, cut again with black and red and I cut pieces of the black and red die cuts and glued them to the white layer.  I glued the always word on top for a finishing touch.

  1. You might think this is a simple card but the colours and dies work well together, so it is an effective design. Thanks for the idea.
