Heart Bandit Card

This week at the Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge, our "twist" is to make a card for boys/men. 
This month's wonderful sponsor is From The Heart Stamps. They offer a variety of fun digi stamp sets for every occasion. You can visit their online store at
For my card, I made a top-hinge base using a Spellbinders Grand Labels 1 die. Then I used the same die to die cut a piece of vellum with a heart pattern to cover the front of the card. I die cut some black cardstock using a Spellbinders Decortive Labels 1 die. Then I printed the digi ("Heart Bandit" by From the Heart Stamps) and colored it with Copic and MEXPY markers. I die cut it with a Spellbinders Labels 1 die and sponged some blue ink onto it for the sky. I added a couple of hearts die cut with Gina Marie Design dies.

  1. Such a great card to send to a little guy, Carrie! I love the embossed vellum with the hearts theme carried through with the cute image and the embellishments. The black frame just sets everything off perfectly!

  2. Love the shape of your card, Carrie! I don't know why I rarely do anything but square! That vellum is a fabulous touch! That's another thing I rarely use! Sigh! You've given me inspiration!
