CAS(E) this Sketch #117

Here's my card

for this week's challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch


I've learned a few things ... 

Cut the hearts first; then the circle around the heart (flip the circle punch upside down to help centre the heart).

For the backgrounds showing through the heart cut-outs, I used a variety of red scraps cut out with a one inch punch. To assist with lining up the 1" circles, I lightly used a pencil to mark the card front - vertical centre and 1.5" on each side; 1" from the fold and 2.5" from the fold. I adhered a 1" circle, centred on all intersection points. 

I made a simple template - cut out a 1 1/4" circle and marked the four quadrants. I lined up the quadrant lines with the pencil lines on the card front, placed each of the heart circles into the 1 1/4" circle and adhered with dimensionals. Of course, once all adhered, erased the pencil lines!

Used this stamp set for the sentiment
