Heart Shape Cards

Hello :) I had an order to do a couple cards from one of my coworkers. One for his fiancée and one for his daughter. He wanted them both personalized so I had fun once again with the sketch pens :) May have to start using these for some fun details on other projects :) I used a heart file for my cameo and in the software I duplicated the heart and welded together to make the card base. So both card bases came from my current counterfeit kit and worked out well for the cards:
His fiancée's was in the purplish and pink card and added some glittery pink hearts :)
 The inside of the card, with the chosen sentiment that I got to work with in the heart. This came about from me trying to draw freehand in my silhouette software and use the heart shape for a cutout to cut the printed paper by hand in the right spot. So glad it worked out as well as it did :)
For his daughter I went with the blue tones:
 I really like the way the blues of the cardstock, the pattern paper and the sketch pen worked together. I found these 3 glittery clear stars on a sticker set that I may be able to finish up real soon when I come across the pictures I want to use with it first :) Thinking I already have them printed.
The inside sentiment, I did the same technique as I did for the above heart. Yep an enjoyable project and my counterfeit kit had just the right paper for the cards. 

As we are getting down to the end of the month, I have been working really hard on my goals for January and getting so close on some and so faraway on others, that I'll be crafting quite a bit over the next few days :) This also gives me insight to what I can do and can't for my crafty goals in the near future. The craft room well that may need another month to finish it up, but I had made some excellent headway last weekend and working on it Saturday again may get it just that much closer to getting finished up :) Have an enjoyable rest of the day and thank you for stopping by and seeing the view from my little corner of the world :)
