Heart Background Thank You Card

A variation on a star card I originally saw on Seaside Creativity, which in turn was inspired by a die-cut card by Debbie Olson.

Probably not the best file for hand cutting, but easy with a machine!

How to make the Heart Background Card

Download file set: Silhouette Studio, SVG (How to use my SVG files in Cricut Design Space), DXF, PDF.

Cut pieces as desired.  I have given you "full" and a "partial" heart background.  I used the one of the right as I was using a band across the card.  For the big blue and pink hearts I cut the large heart heart pattern at 100% for the blue one and reduced it to 70% for the pink one.

Back the hearts with patterned paper. 

Adhere to base card: I cut my heart background to measure 5" wide x 6" tall.  This fits perfectly on 8.5" x 11" paper, landscape, trimmed to 6.5" height. Folded in half for your card will be 5.5" wide x 6.5" tall.
