Heart of Flowers
Well after days of not actually making a card I decided today that I wanted to do something
We were planning on going out – that was before we saw the rain and dark skies!!!
So it was out with the stamps for a change
This card was made using Chloe's Stamps
www.chloescreativecards.co.uk and the stamp is MAR005 Flower Heart Wreath at £5.99
I started by folding a sheet of matt black A4 card to create my A5 card blank
I then stamped randomly with a swirly stamp by My Paper World – it was stamped with versamark and then covered with granite embossing powder and heated
That was put to one side while I worked on the topper.
I stamped the heart onto white card using versamark then sprinkled with granite embossing powder and heated.
This was then cropped and matted onto black then white card leaving a narrow border each time.
I stuck this to the card blank using double sided tape and PVA glue to be sure it stuck securely.
Next stamped a sentiment by Lindsey Mason onto white card again with versamark – and again covered with the granite embossing powder – tapped away the excess and heat embossed
This was matted like the heart – so black then white card – this was then fixed to the card under the topper but I used large sticky pads and pva too.
A butterfly was punched from pressed black glitter card – I used the Papermania butterfly punch – I folded the wings up and glued along the body only – this was placed inside the heart wreath.
To finish I used black AB gems in the centre of all the flowers that make up the heart wreath and also one in each of the 4 corners of the topper – then I added clear AB gems either side of the black in the corners!
I am so pleased with the card – hubby said it was ok – but too heavy for his liking – men – what do they know anyway??
Would welcome your thoughts please....
