Hearts, Hearts, and More Hearts
Wednesday, February 13, 2013
The layout is from Viva la Verve's February 2013 Week 1 sketch, and it was perfect for this card. Did you notice the progression of hearts in the dp's? The teeny little hearts are on the back layer, on the next layer the hearts are just a little bit bigger, the long horizontal layer is ever bigger, and it's topped off with that pretty lattice heart--kind of symbolic of how my love has grown for my daughter over the years.
I did some distressing, and that was a good thing because my sewing machine went a little bonkers for a few minutes. All that bizarre zig zag stitching was not intentional, but it added to the distressed look, so I kept it in.
I used Corner Chompers to create the Deco and rounded corners, and added eyelets to the middle layer so that I could add a twine bow there. The bow is topped with a button and rhinestone.
The Daily Marker. She comes up with so many fun ideas! Behind the rolled back corner, I stamped a little "From the heart" stamp, and added Glossy Accents to the heart there.
The large die cut heart was cut from white cs. I sponged several pink and red Distress Inks over it, then spread glitter glue over the heart, leaving the edges clean.
Well, I think that will do it for me and Valentine's cards this year. I better get going on Easter cards or I'll be doing the last minute thing all over again!!!
I'll be entering this card in the following challenges:
