I did mention previously that I was way behind in my posting, so I am going to try & catch up, but the hard part is thinking what cards I have created & where they are – have I already posted them, given them away????
The card today is one we created at my Friday’s Volunteer Class. We had lots of fun with this card, but I was a little cruel to the ladies. I actually forgot to take my punch, so had to quickly make up a couple of pages of different size hearts on the computer so they could complete their card.
Base Card – Very Vanilla – 8 1/4″ x 4 1/8″ or 21cm x 15cm – Scored in the middle & folded in half
Layer 1 – DSP – 3 7/8″ x 5 5/8″ or 14cm x 10cm
Layer 2 – Soft Suede – 4 3/4″ x 2″ or 12cm x 5cm
Layer 3 – DSP – 4 5/8″ x 1 7/8″ or 11.5cm x 4.5cm
Stamp Set – Short & Sweet
Ink – Blushing Bride, Soft Suede
Cardstock – Very Vanilla, Soft Suede
DSP – IN Colours DSP
Ribbon – Crochet Trim – Chantilly
Punches – Full Heart, Oval, Scallop Oval
Brad – Antique Brads
Accessories – Mini Glue Dots, Sponge Daubers, Snail Adhesive, Tombow Multipurpose Glue
I grabbed my Sponge Dauber & inked around the edges of the large piece & small piece of DSP with Soft Suede Ink. The large piece was adhered to the Base Card – Very Vanilla, while the smaller piece of DSP was adhered to the piece of Soft Suede Cardstock using Snail Adhesive.
Using the Full Heart Punch, I punched 20 hearts from the IN Colours DSP, sponged my Dauber around each heart with Soft Suede Ink, applied a small amount of Tombow Multipurpose Glue to the bottom part of the hearts & adhered them together ensuring that they were stacked on top of each other. I made the flower so that it had 4 hearts for the base of the flower & then built on these 4 flowers. In total you should have 5 layers on each heart.
Using my Bone Scorer, I turned up the edges of each petal to give the flower a little “character”.
I tied a double bow from the Crochet Ribbon, wrapped the Brad around the middle pror to adhering to the middle of the flower using a Mini Glue Dot. The flower was then applied to the Base Card with a couple of Mini Glue Dots.
The sentiment was stamped onto a scrap piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock with Blushing Bride Ink, punched with the Oval Punch, sponged around the edges with Soft Suede Ink, adhered to a piece of Soft Suede Cardstock which had been punched with the Scallop Oval Punch & adhered to the Base Card.
Until next time, Happy Stampin’
