Love is the key

I needed to make an anniversary card so I took advantage of Splitcoast Stampers' Featured Stamper challenge yesterday to give me a kick start. The featured Stamer was Teri Anderson, a very creative stamper and sweet lady to boot! Teri has lots of great inspiration in her Splitcoast gallery and I chose this card as my starting point.

I stamped the heart portion of a Crafty Individuals collage stamp in two different reddish shades, cut them out and arranged them on the card base. The sentiment is stamped directly onto the card and a scored line just anchors the whole thing and stops it being too top heavy. Once again, the Scor It made my job easy in creating a line with a break for the point of the heart as the project is face up on the board so you can see where you're scoring.
