Concentric hearts

The other day I made a clean and simple card for a challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays, well I enjoyed making it so much that I thought I would give it a go again - not that I do complicated busy cards but I liked doing this card because the end result is usually a very stylish card and it is a nice change!  So I made 2 mini cards (100mm x 100mm) for CAS-ual Fridays.  I have used felt for Paper Sundaes - the concentric hearts are made from yellow and red felt that has been layered on thin chipboard, I used the concentric heart die from Cuttlebug and run the felt through a die cutting machine and I just switched the middle heart from one to the other and so I ended up making these 2 cards concurrently with a few differences.  I am also submitting it for Crafts & Me - add a heart.

Now both cards have 'x' on them - I refound my love for staples! ... and yes I did manage to staple the card closed on one of the 'x' - how many times have you done that?! LOL ... but I managed to hide the holes on the inside!
materials - AC canary and black, Bazzill red devil cardstock; AnnaBelle Stamps squared posies; Versa Color camellia ink; Cuttlebug concentric heart die; Stapler; red and yellow felt; lightweight chipboard.
Thanks for looking.
