Guest Designer: Allison Cope

Ally went so crazy to town with my set last month, I still haven't even shared all her amazing creations! So expect some more Valentine's inspiration from her over the next week! :)

Here's what Ally has to say about this today's card:
"I loved the phrase "Hand in hand, heart to heart" that Melanie had added to the "Hand-in-Hand" set and knew that I wanted to use the phrase using hearts. So I came up with this really simple card. I die cut my label shape and then cut the heart shape out of it's center. I stamped the sentiment on some vellum paper and adhered it to the back of the label and peeking out of the heart opening. On a scrap piece of white cardstock I stamped the two hands holding one another and coloured them in quite dark so they would show through the vellum. I centered and adhered the hands behind the heart opening and the created a hand-cut scalloped border for the label using my deco scalloped scissors. "
Supplies:Stamps: Gina K. Designs (Hand-in-Hand)
