Two Hearts

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!



  1. Love how you get your inspiration from a popular song, Carole! The little photo corners are just darling! Thank you for join us again! Happy crafting! :)

  2. I agree with Nina the hearts are very sweet! The silhouette of the man and woman is really romantic. So happy you played along with us again at The Cameo Spotlight!
