And a happy Sunday to you all too!
Out of the pile of hearts I cut recently comes another card ... it's just a phase I'm going through :) ... made especially for Di's Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 134 today.
I can't claim the design to be entirely mine ... I'm sure I've seen something somewhere that gave me the idea. I just can't remember where. Here's how I made my version.
Firstly, I shaped a card measuring 4½" square out of a scrap of cream cardstock, creating a tent style card base.
The next step was to layer a piece of red textured card on to a larger piece of Kraft (measure to fit across the card but leave a margin top and bottom.
I then wrapped the seam binding around it and tied it off with a knot. The seam binding was a happy find in the box of ribbon scraps. It was a bit leftover from another project made many moons ago ... it was white to begin with but was dyed using distress inks in a variety of colours that just seemed perfect for this card.
Once that was done the strip of black punched edging - another item left from a previous project (maybe I should start throwing bits like this away!!!) - was fixed to the bottom edge of these layers.
Next, came the hearts - the white embossed one came from that mammoth die-cutting session and the small ones were punched out in Kraft, brown and black to create the design.
The gem was then added as a final touch.
Be warned, I still have a box full of hearts left yet. So, at the risk of boring you to tears, there's definitely going to be more heart cards in the weeks to come as I think of ways to use them up.
In the meantime, because it's a damp and dull day - though incredibly warm and muggy - I'm going to attack the ironing basket then, once that's done, I'm going to devote some time in the craft room ... putting a scrap page together. I have a lovely photo of my two little great-grandchildren that is crying out to be scrapped :)
Thanks for popping in. I hope you all have a wonderful day whatever you are doing.
