Stripey heart with dotty Borderlines



Good Morning!  Second post of the day so please scroll down to see my previous post. 
This is the card that I made for LESS IS MORE but didn't get time to post yesterday.  

This week is a One Layer Challenge and we have to use stripes.  Luckily for me I have the Solid Stripes stamp, just had to think what to do with it.  For some reason candy cane came to mind which developed into a candy cane heart. 

I started with a Whisper White card base and stamped the dotty stamp from Borderlines firstly in Versamark then in Elegant Eggplant then clear embossed.  I punched out a heart using the Full Heart Punch.  I then punched another heart in a post it and lined it up inside the card to act as a mask.  Then stamped Solid Stripes in Rose Red.  I added a Basic Rhinestone Gem for a bit of sparkle.

The sentiment is from Petite Pairs which I inked with Concord Crush Stampin' Write Marker and used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to change it to a straight line. 

This is to show you the card open. 


I'm enjoying playing around with apertures just now.  I think it's a great way to give a little extra to a one layer.  Also loving this new stamp set from the mini Borderlines can see it being used a lot!
