House of Cards November Challenge

Wait a minute, didn't October just start? Time is sure flying by.

Here's my card

It's for the November challenge at House of Cards 

Technique Challenge: Stamped Punch Window


I inked up a card front using ink blending tools and distress inks (Ripe Persimmon, Barn Door and Picked Raspberry).

I used this Memory Box cherub hearts die to cut out a heart from the centre of the front panel.

 I also cut out the same sized heart with white cardstock. 

I used this Simon Says STAMP to stamp the sentiment on the white cardstock heart.

I added a small heart from this WPlus9 stamp set.

I popped-up the inked panel using dimensionals on the card base. I added adhesive to the back of the white heart and carefully placed it on the card base in the "hole" left on the inked panel.

I added sequins to finish the card.
