Lovely hAnglars only want a non-square easel card this week - GREAT - I've wanted to try a heart shaped easel card for some time so here was my opportunity. I also have cut and half made a heart shape box and a heart shaped bag so I now need another challenge to finish these.
I have to say, the most difficult part of this was photographing it. I thought square ones were bad enough - this was nigh impossible.
This is the card closed - possibly the best photograph.
I use the largest scalloped heart for the base. I then cut a scalloped heart using the Tim Holtz vintage papers and placed a plain heart on top of this after I had embossed it with the cuttlebug Textile folder.
As the whole thing is not too big I used one of the smaller hAnglars, coloured her in Copics, cut her out and sat her on a smaller heart.
I used a WOJ sentiment also on a smaller heart which I used for the stopper.
The leaves and flower is cut with a Crealies and a small rose placed in the center of the flower. The lace is from Bunny Zoe's and I attached some Magnolia chandeliers (if that's what they're called) around the lace and fastened them with a pearl brad.
Finally everything is liberally distressed using Victorian Velvet distress ink.
I am also entering this into the following two challenges
A Spoonful of Sugar - Die cutting or punches
Sentimental Sunday's - distressing
