Love Heart Layout by Audrey Mutschall

Hi friends! Audrey Mutschall here with a new layout featuring Paige’s Love Heart from the 14 Valentine Cut Files. I fell in love with this cut file as soon as I saw it and couldn’t wait to pair it with the gorgeous Garden Shoppe collection!
I cut the Love Heart from white cardstock and backed the flowers and hearts with a variety of papers from the 12x12 Paper Pad. With that complete, I glued a piece of vellum behind the design. I wanted to do something fun with the scalloped edge of the heart so I backed it with strips of pleated Washi Tape. To do this, I cut a piece of clear transparency in the same shape as the heart, making it slightly larger than the cut file. I stuck the washi tape to the edge of the transparency, making pleats as I went around it. I used foam tape to adhere this layer behind the cut file, giving it a little extra dimension. I added a dimensional heart to the center of the cut file by cutting three hearts from Paper 20, bending them in half, and gluing them together. I also fussy cut three blue hearts from Paper 17 and used the same technique to make a smaller dimensional heart which I glued to the larger one. This is a really fun and simple technique to help make an element pop off the page! With the heart design complete, I got to work embellishing. I added buttons and Enamel Button Stickers to the cut file and used Paper 11 for the background. I saved the tear-away strip and glued it to the right side of the design then added a chain link stitch as a border. I matted my photo with Paper 19 and adhered it to the right side of the page, adding some sentiments from Paper 23, a Foam Phrase Sticker, and some Cardstock Stickers.
I wish you all a very happy Valentine’s Day and hope you find inspiration to use the Love Heart from the 14 Valentine Cut Files and Garden Shoppe!
