The other day I posted the card with the Verve hearts and the little buttons. The heart at the top of that card was first stamped and then punched out with one of my new EK Success heart punches. Well as I was cleaning my craft table, and organizing all of the scraps (not my favorite thing to do) I ran across these "hollow hearts". They were too pretty to just toss so I started playing around and this card is what I ended up with.....
Isn't it the yummiest. These colors remind me of Neopolitan Ice Cream.
Basically all I did to the hearts was to cut around one side of the heart on the left, matched up the corners and attached a small piece of DP to the back. The corners are punched with the SU ticket punch. After stacking the layers, attaching brads, I then adhered it to the card base using foam squares. The sentiment is also from the Verve Heart to Heart set. I stamped it twice to achieve the shadow on the word "mine". The tag was created using the Ribbon tag slides by Nestabilities on Pink Piroque CS by SU. Not sure if you can see in the photo how the tag is bowed just a bit giving it added dimension. This is achieved by using a thick or wide ribbon.
The 1" scalloped strips of chocolate chip cs were first punched with the Scallop Edge punch (SU) and then pierced with a Craft Needle. I placed my pieces on a mouse pad, centered the needle in each scallop and poke a hole. When I push the needle through, I wiggle it (more of a tilting, not spinning) in circles to create a larger hole. The inside of the card was stamped using the same heart but the sentiment there is from PTI.
Thanks for stopping by. I am off to go create some Valentine Treats and gifts so stay tuned.
