Hi all

I am back with my another creation.

I have been thinking heart shape card for a very long time but hardly get a time to try this. I don’t have even expensive dies so I was a bit nervous to try this too. But suddenly it came to my mind why not I draw some scallop shape heart roughly and try it on some rough paper first. Then I draw scallop shape heart, convert it in to easel card and I was surprised that the card shape comes out so well without using any dies.

Finally I decided to make a final scallop heart easel card.

Now here comes my creation without using any dies -

Card base is hand drawn and hand cut on a Red cardstock.
Couple silhouette image is a cut out from an old invitation card.
Background scene is created by some old stamps and stamp pads are from our own Indian art supplies brand Yes Camel brand. I am a big fan of this brand and mostly buy my art stuff from this brand.
Inside scallop circle shape is again hand drawn and hand cut.
Sentiment is computer generated.
Cupid is again computer generated.

Wow Sudha ur card is simply awesome..

In fact long back when easel card challenge was going on on ICR I had hand cut a butterfly shape on paper to make an easel card out of it, but as it was around Diwali time made a Diya (panti)shaped easel card...
now ur card reminded me of that hand cut will give it a try;) Hope it turns out well
