Carved Wood Heart


This week’s Freshly Made Sketch was my inspiration.


I began with a Thick Whisper White card base, layered with Whisper White that I cut with the largest Stitched Rectangles Die.

The heart was cut with a Be Mine Stitched Die from wood (it’s really paper) in the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper pack.

When my husband saw this card, he said, “Nice card, is it for me?” So, this qualifies it as a masculine card, and my theory holds true: anytime wood is used, it’s a masculine card. 


Beneath the heart is a branch, cut with a die from In the Woods, a carry-over set from last season’s Holiday Catalog.

The dots are made with the Handheld 1/16th Inch Punch and Noble Peacock Foil Sheets, which comes in the three colors you see in the dots.

TIP: The dots are saved within the punch, so they don’t pop all over your work space. Place a tiny pin dot of glue where you want a dot. Then, pick up the dot, put it on the glue, and tap gently with a pin. Reading glasses help!


My clean & simple, masculine card, is complete, with a sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings, and cut with a Merry Christmas Label Die.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great day!
