Very wintery here in good old Michigan, USA. About another inch of snow this weekend. We are all tired of shoveling. I have had a nasty cold and am finally feeling better. So, I had a few days off to be miserable and felt able to work on a project yesterday. I will share that project later on .....maybe next weekend.
For today, I have some pretty in pink Valentine's Day Cards I made to send out to family and friends. The cards are more on the CAS side made with pretty papers and no stamping (I did stamp sentiments on the inside). I really enjoy using all the beautiful papers I have in my stash. Sometimes I think my papers get neglected. So, get those papers out and let them shine!! I gave my heart punch a little work out too.
CS: white and cream
Decorative Papers: various pink and heart themed papers
- Make a card base from cream and white CS
- Punch a heart shape from pink papers
- Cut a square from another Decorative paper and position under the heart cut out
- Layer this unit onto the card base
- Add a bow
- Add pearls
I saw a sample like this on Pinterest and wanted to try it. TIP: Try it on a scrap piece first to get the placement of the punched hearts right. I found that the depth of my punch's reach kind of dictated where my hearts were on the paper piece. I threw one out before getting the placement how I liked it. LOL
- Punch three hearts from pink paper
- Layer over a second decorative paper
- Add two bows
- This paper was pretty enough to stand on its own. I cut a 4.25 x 5.50 inch piece from an 8x8 sheet and layered onto a cream card.
