Heart Shaped Wreath Card!


(Please click on image for close-up)
Firstly cut out the heart shape on white card using deckled
scissors, I find when you are cutting out anything freehand
you seem to get a more forgiving shape with these scissors!
I then cut to size a piece of velum and stamped my PB stamp
(which is a lovely quote by marcel proust!) with Encore!
ultimate metallic. Set a silver eyelet in the corner and added
white organza ribbon. I then placed three layers of foam pads
under the heart to give it a real lift. Then added silver holly
leaves, punched heart shapes from metallic and silver
glitter card, added lovely iridescent snowflakes and beads,
a large silver star and some smaller ones, I made the bow at
the bottom from silver string beads.
Good morning all you crafty bloggers, well the sun is shining
today; it's a lovely crisp morning here in Maldon, so I thought
I'd make a nice Silver wintery wreath card. This card is so
adaptable, it can be made plain or add as much detail as you
want, put your own personal message inside, have one
hanging from the middle! also the colour combinations are
endless, Gold would be pretty, pink, blue oooh take your pick!
They can be heart shaped or circular!
Think I will enter this one in the penny black Saturday
Challenge, here is the link if you would like to enter
this week (25) they are asking for your design to be made
without the use of any patterned paper, but you must
incorporate a penny black stamp. TFL and good luck xx
