I created this card for the Cameo Spotlight Challenge #2. The theme is numbers. We can interpret this in anyway we choose. I decided to make a wedding card to have on hand for the next time I need one. When I decided to do a wedding card, I could not get the phrase "Two Hearts Beat as One" out of my head. It is an old U2 song. I recently purchased a wide format printer and decided I should finally hook the thing up and use the print and cut feature for this project.
I typed out "Two Hearts" and "Beat as One" and placed them on a rectangle I created in my Silhouette studio software. I flood filled the words and a bold border with red ink and then print and cut it. I cut two 'wedding couple' images from black card stock and layered them with pop dots. I welded two small hearts together, cut them out of red card stock and adhered them to the wedding couple. I affixed the couple on the card between the words again using pop dots. I put a very, very thin black mat behind the red bordered rectangle. I placed this on a red patterned card stock. I fussy cut a couple heart flowers from scrap card stock and used them as photo corners.
I really like the design despite it's simplicity. I feel it conveys the message perfectly.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by and looking at my card!
