Hello Friends, I hope you are having a fabulous day!
Today I would like to share with you a Valentines Day Heart Card that I created.
I started off by creating a template for the card in Inkscape. I then used the digital paper that I created, and some of the images from the Valentine Mini album I designed below.
Here is a picture of the pieces I cut out with my new Black Cat Cougar, edges slightly distressed...and inked with Worn Lipstick distress ink by Ranger.
The rose is one I painted in GIMP and then used to design the digi paper I used for the hearts. The Cherub is part of a Gecko Galz image from this month's collection.
I should also say that I will be sharing this with the ABC Design Team Challenge and Simon says Stamp and show (wings and buttons). The main reason I started this card was because of Frank's challenge over at the Flying Unicorn (9 hearts in your project). I am also Sharing with Inspirational Journal (add a heart). I will also be linking up to Pink Saturday. This week I will be sharing at 4 Crafty Chicks as well.
Here I have started to glue pieces down. Esmeralda of Pro 31 Designs sent me some Design Team goodies..and I used some of them below. I love the red lace/ribbon trim!! It followed the shape of my heart easily. I created another heart shape using some clear colored pearls. I placed the Gecko Galz image in the center.
(sorry about all the glue tendrils)
Next I used my hot glue gun and added some curly roses that came in my Pro 31 Design Team kit. I LOVE them!! The rosebuds came from an RAK that I won at the Flying Unicorn. The vintage buttons I bought on one of my trips to the antique store.
How about a look at the inside :0)
I used some of the red blingy mesh to go around my hearts, I will say this looks super fabulous IRL. You don't quite get the full effect of the bling. I used a digital "Love" stamp when creating my background paper. See those little hearts with the rosebuds and antique buttons??? They are hidden tags!! To write some love notes on of course!!
Here is a photo with them taken out.
They look the same on the reverse side (minus the rose and button) You can see here how I used two pieces of some pale pink flatback pearl trim for the button flower centers. These came from Pro 31 Designs as well. Here is the back of the card.
I used more of the red trim, some pale pink flat back pearl trim, Large curly roses..and small roses all from Pro 31 Designs. The Heart collage in the center is one I created myself. The key and red hearts with flowers are Gecko Galz images that I incorporated into it.
I hope to have some time next week to do a video.
