How to Use the Bright Hearts Die
by Laura Fulcher


Greetings friends.  I have seen a couple of people on Instagram ask about how the hearts were colored when you use the Bright Hearts die.  I thought I would break it down for you with some pictures.

First, cut out the Bright Hearts, which will leave you a circular area of hearts.  The die itself works great with the Bright Rays die, which will cut out various wedges of cardstock.  You don't have to have this die to place colors of cardstock behind the open heart circle, but it sure does make it easier!  For my card, I cut out the Bright Hearts from white cardstock and cut the Bright Rays six times so that I could have six different colors of pink:


You could place the wedges behind the open hearts so hat each row was the same color, or you could do as I did and split each heart in half with two colors of pink cardstock.  Here is the first wedge:


Notice how each heart is split in half.

Next, I added more wedges:


I only had six colors of pink paper, so I had to repeat the same colors again.  However, how great would it look if you had 12 different colors and could do a full ombre effect?  I think it would be fabulous!

To finish the card, I added the Love Jotted Script die and popped it up with some foam tape:


I hope this makes it a bit clearer.  Please let me know if you have any other questions!







very pretty and impressive looking!

Lovely card, Laura!

This is such a sweet design. Thanks for sharing your creativity.

Thanks, it is helpful to have both those dies, of course one could color in!
