Two-Heart Card, Blue and Green - Before and After

Sometimes a card needs just a little something extra ... a touch of bling, but not always the sparkly-shiny type. In this case, a couple of card-stock dots, courtesy of my sturdy old office-supply hole punch. I'm very fond of using quarter-inch dots, especially with hearts. Click here for more examples.

Below is how it looked before I added the dots.

My card is for the "Love You" challenge on the Operation Write Home Stars and Stamps blog. Card details:
  • Card stock is PaperTrey Ink enchanted evening (dark blue) and spring moss (light yellow-green - more green than yellow in real life) on a sturdy PaperTrey Ink stamper's select white card base. All corners are rounded, using the 1/4" side of the corner chomper.
  • My patterned paper is computer-printed on Neenah solar white, using PowerPoint. (White periods in a colored text box. It requires some patience at first to get the right spacing, but then it's easy to change colors. If you'd like more info, let me know via a comment, and I'll post more about it.)
  • The sentiment "Love" is computer-printed. Click here for my font details.
  • The hearts are from a 1" EK Success punch. The 1/4" dots are from a very old McGill Gem hand punch.
