Key to my [Fashionable] Heart take two...


What did you think of my last post? Cute card...but not much detail..huh! =)
I'm back today with all the deets......

During the month of February i cut out lots and lots of hearts from the Fashionable Hearts sizzlet (love this little sizzlet!)...Since i had such a variety of sizes and colors i thought i'd play around a bit. I thought it would be a nice touch to add some hearts to this particular DSP! They fit niceyly into the decorative printed circles. Take a look again at the first card i posted. And now take a look at this card:

Do you see a difference between the two cards? Not much difference...the layout is the same but i switched up the size of the hearts on the DSP!

Using a variety of colours i chose to use the smallest heart on the sizzlet for this first card. I used the embossed houndstooth heart and added a short greeting banner. The key is also facing up. AND yes i cut out the DSP to shape the zig zag!...i hear gasps...! Trust me, it didn't take long at all and cutting is part of paper crafting.....right..? ; )

This card has bigger hearts on the DSP. I used the second smallest hearts from the sizzlet and attached them to the DSP. I also cut out a cherry cobbler heart using the full heart punch and backed it onto a crumb cake heart from the framelits die.

I fancied up the arrow greeting banner with a bit of bling. This banner was cut out using the full heart punch. Here's how i did it:

First stamp the greeting on a piece of scrap whisper white card stock. My piece of card stock is 1/2" wide x 3" long. Slide the left end into the full heart punch as shown. This will create a "fork".

Then slide the right end of the greeting card stock into opposite end of the full heart punch as shown here. This creates the point of your "arrow".

Just before you attach your greeting banner to the cherry cobbler heart add some bling! I've raised up the crumb cake heart with stampin' dimensionals.

Hope you like... : )

That heart punch trick is brilliant, I have done it with the square punch but this totally is way cool!
