The heart always finds it's way

Here is funky card and matching gift box i have made for The  In2craft  facebook page /shop   DT. They have some Xcut dies coming into their store at fabulous prices so get over to  In2craft  and save yourselves some money on these x cut dies.
I have made a stepper card using a presscut die  for this project and have used the die called The heart always finds its way which i cut out once in pink and once in black [which i shadowed behind the pink]  for extra pop . the rest of the card was simple matting and layering . I added a little ornate heart die cut from memory box with a heart charm and bow . The charm was silver but i coloured it black with a sharpie to match .The red heart i have inserted back into the die shape was covered with glossy accents .

The box was made in black card stock and then i copied the design from the card to complete the set . I like the simplicity of this card ,leaving the die cut to make the statement ..
