The Stamps R Us Challenge for the next two weeks is to create a shaped card. I had many ideas, but decided to make a Heart shaped card as it coordinated with the image so nicely.
The image is a digi from Gingerloft. I printed it out and cut it out…I added a little Copic Spica pen for glitz around the white outer edge of the image. I decided to try something creative with a doily….gathering it to fit around my heart image…
First I cut out the center, then ran a running stitch around the edge of the inside of the circle.
Then I gently pulled on the thread and adjusted the gathers.
I added a couple of flowers made with the 3/4” and the 1” circle punch that were sponged with red ink.
The background red is run through the Cuttlebug with Coordinations cardstock. I lightly sanded the Love Bites candy images and I am done! I used the largest heart and scalloped heart Nestability dies- and they do fit into a regular A-4 envelope.
I hope you will stop by Stamps R Us and play in our challenge.
