Operation Write Home – Romantic Card with Paper Piercing


  • Stamp – Simon Says Stamp “Lots of Hearts”
  • Die cut made with matching dies from Simon Says Stamp “Large Hearts”
  • Patterned paper – My Mind’s Eye “Collectable: Memorable – Perfect” (both sides)
  • Border punch – Stampin’ Up “Scallop Edge”
  • Cardstock – Bazzill
  • Pearls – Queen & Company

This is another Operation Write Home card I’ve made for the OWH Virtual Cardmaking Party for National Scrapbooking Day. I made this one in response to Sandy’s challenge to make a romantic card using a technique in one of the OWH tutorials. I chose a tutorial on paper piercing from a couple years ago. I went for a linear look in my design for this  card, with a line of “holes” to match the line of scallops. Then I switched things up a little by adding pearls to alternating scallops–but we’ve still got a strong horizontal line going. Finally, I edged all of the elements with chalk inks to unify them and really showcased the beautiful (and romantic!) floral patterned paper. Thanks for visiting today.
