Distressed and Woven Hearts

Happy New Years Eve everyone!

Up in the shed this morning I made another couple of valentine cards… I’d had a dream or sleepy thoughts on what I was going to made today and had decided that I would make a few valentine cards all different shapes/sizes and flavours 🙂

The first card is a woven heart.. I cut strips of paper 1cm wide and did a bit of a weave with them… I then die cut a sizzix heart and glued the weave to it 🙂 … the rest of the card is fairly simple, a bit of a stamped background and dabbed the edges of the card with some chalk ink..

Supplies List :-

  • 1 x Papermania 3 x 3 Card and Envelope
  • Versamagic Pixie Dust Chalk Ink
  • Papermania Urban Stamp Set
  • Various scraps of pink patterned paper
  • Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive
  • Brayer to flatten it out and stick it down
  • Docrafts Artiste Glitter Varnish (its a bit like sparkle mod podge)
  • the sentiment was just typed and printed out onto cream cardstock
  • Basic Grey heart trio for the envelope

The second card is a masculine one with a distressed heart and I also used one of my new Stampin Up! brads…

Supplies List :-

  • Stampin Up Baja Breeze Cardstock and Ink
  • Authentique Patterned Paper
  • Sizzix Heart Die
