Lacy Lavender Heart

Inspiration

Since we did shoes yesterday, my weekly Heartfelt Creations cards will be posted today and tomorrow. If you want to check out the Shoe Blog Hop, or to see all the other weekly creations by the design team, be sure to jump over to the Heartfelt Creations blog!

The June release from Heartfelt Creations is the Heartfelt Wedding Collection and it has such pretty images! This card uses the versatile Decorative Lace Border Die, which I trimmed to give it a totally different look. This die presents so many possibilities for ways to use it!

Instructions

Image

Stamp the heart image on the 4" x 4" white paper with black ink. Cut out the scalloped heart with the matching Nestabilities die. Color the leaves, stems, and roses with COPIC markers. The colors I used are: G21, G24, V91, V93, V95. Color over the background flowers with the clear Versamark marker. Sprinkle the embossing glitter on the embossing ink, and emboss with the heat gun. Add a purple adhesive gem in each scallop of the heart.

Lace Layer

Using the Decorative Lace die, cut a border from the metallic white paper, then trim the border around the round edges to create a more narrow lace trim. Adhere this to the 1" x 6" strip of purple card stock. Wrap a strip of ribbon around the layer, and create a bow and adhere it to the right edge of the layer.

Assembly

Lacy Lavender Heart

After scoring and folding your base card, run the bottom, open edge through the rotary trimmer using a scalloped blade. Do the same for both pieces of the designer paper - trimming only one edge with the scalloped blade. Adhere one piece of the designer paper to the base card. Mount the lace layer across the middle of the card. Mount the 4" square of purple card stock over the lace, centering it on the card. Add the metallic white square on the purple one, and add the scalloped heart using foam tape.

Inside

For the sentiment, mount the other designer paper square, with one scalloped edge. For the sentiment, mount the 4 1/2" purple square, followed by the remaining white square, and stamp the sentiment in dark purple.

Thanks for stopping by!
