Thank You...

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.

Measurements -
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

Supplies -
Stamp Set - Short & Sweet
Ink - Blushing Bride, Soft Suede

Inside Card...
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'

This is fantastic Vicky. I would never have thought to use my heart punch in this fashion. Great upsell!
