The January Paper Pumpkin kit, Sending Hearts, was perfect for me, in that it makes eight cards, just the right amount for me to mail out. The kit made four cards of each of two designs.
Of course, I wasn't content to just follow the instructions and make the cards as they were meant to be. I had to make them my very own, but still using many of the components that came in the kit.
I have no idea whatsoever what happened to one of the "loves" that were meant to be used on one of the designs. So, with my "love lost", I needed to come up with an alternative plan for one of the cards. More on that later.
Another major change I made was with the hearty stamp that came in the kit to place in the center of the gold metallic heart on the preprinted component. With horrible arthritis in my hands, I do have a lot of trouble stamping certain images. These hearts were all solid, and I could not, with any consistency, get those hearts to look good.
In lieu of the stamping, I grabbed an old retired die set, and cut three red hearts and one black heart. More on that later.
