Retro Heart Notch Swing Card #1

With Valentine's Day coming up, I thought it would be fun to try my hand at a heart-shaped Notch Swing card.

I've been waiting for the perfect opportunity to ink up this cassette tape stamp from TPC Studio's Retro Technology rubber stamp set. I also used a music-themed Posh Impressions rubber stamp. Both were stamped with Versamark ink and heat-embossed with purple powder (Stampendous).

I added a border of neon orange Liquid Pearls on both sides of the notch swing piece, plus in the corners.

The front is a pre-glittered cardstock (Core'Dinations), and I added a bit of black satin ribbon. The corners were notched with a Marvy punch.

This heart-shaped notch swing card was designed in Sure Cut A Lot (SCAL) and cut with my Silhouette electronic die-cutting machine. All of my Notch Swing Cards are archived here. If you'd like to try it yourself, a version of this card design is now available for purchase as SVG files for your die-cutting machine in the SaySomethingLoudly Etsy Shop. Thank you for supporting my crafting!
