How to make a large heart into a small heart

lace-heart-nk-2.jpgI just love the large heart in the Lace Heart set, however I was working on a card that called for a smaller heart and I really wanted the “lace heart” look.   A while back I sold many of my smaller heart stamps so I used the large lace heart and very easily made a small one.   Here is my finished card and how I did it.  The card uses vanilla and rose red paper and rose red ink with a little chocolate ink for depth.  The ribbon is a cream satin scallop from May Arts.  Both hearts were cut with cuttlebug die cuts.
