*Echo Park - Yours Truly Blog Hop!*

Hi!
Welcome to the Echo Park Paper "Yours Truly" Design Team Blog Hop!


(




If you've come from my sweet talented friend Wendy Sue Anderson's blog -you're in the right place!!)

Today the Echo Park Design Team
is showcasing projects highlighting the "Yours Truly" collection:



















Yummy, right?!
::sw♥♥n::

Here's what I made:


















Just a simple card...
So simple in fact I'll share with you how I made it!


-I trimmed the honeymoon patterned paper 6" x 12", then folded & scored
-I hand cut a heart (eyeballed it - it's about 3" in width) from adore, then
-I used letters to spell out "l -ve" on the left side of the heart, adding a small ♥ sticker.
-I used letters to spell out "let me call you" around the top left side of the heart.
-I used the "sweetheart" sticker on the bottom part of the heart, using 3D adhesive.
-using a black pen - I drew stitching around the heart as well as inside the heart.

see? SUPER easy! ♥
