OCC Challenge

I was organizing my Cuttlebug folders the other night and ran across this cute postage stamp heart folder and die stamp so here is one more Valentine and it fits right into the OCC Challenge for this week. I just bought the background paper today and thought it went well with this simple layout. The paper is by Pebbles Inc. I embossed each stamp and then cut around the edges and mounted them each to stamp die cuts of the opposite color. I punched the big red heart with one a Paper Shapers punch and then embossed it with a Quickutz Goose Bump design. I added white dots around the hearts to make them show up a little better. I also used my Cuttlebug dots embossing folder to add some demension to the red background paper. I popped up the large red heart and the block of hearts with demensionals and added the pink grossgrain ribbon. I'm still debating whether I should put some tiny rhinestones around the hearts or leave as is.


  1. Beautiful card Emily, wonderful colours and layout. I love the way you have added the white dots around the hearts, really makes them stand out!!
