Hi everyone. I made this card of my hubby using a Sue Wilson Heart of Hearts die from her Finishing Touches range, and I also used a die cut frame from a set by Claritystamp called Nested Doodle Frame-Its.
I started with the main heart die which cuts into the card and I made a stencil cutting it from an offcut of card. I then found a piece of white card cut at approximately 4" square, and having found the centre I started with the stencil of the die upside down and roughly assessed whether I could fit it four times on the card going round from the centre, and I thought I would give it a try. I ink blended with a blending brush and Candied Apple Distress Ink and it fitted perfectly by making sure I butted each time up to the last. I was then left with the empty corners and I used the die with the bottom pointed section and fitted in some more hearts to to fill the card. I then had the idea of using the stencil again to place a heart in the centre of the piece of card, using the same ink but just to give a soft impression. This was not so successful and I then decided to use a Black Micron Pen to outline the hearts and then fill them in to make them stand out from the busy background. I then added the sentiment using Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink and added a black matted layer. I had already cut a set of the frames and I chose this one which allowed room for the topper to fit within it and adhered it to the white 6" square card, and then added the topper too.
Thank you for visiting my blog today and I'll see you again soon.
