The One with the Love Love (Shaped Challenge) Card


Sunday, February 23, 2014

This week's cards challenge I came up with for the Create Blog was to make a shaped card. Time to think outside the square/rectangle box! Here's what I made:

LOVE by Paige Evans 

Card is 6" across
How to: Trim concentric hearts from patterned papers then sew around each heart using cream thread. Layer the hearts together then sew a straight line down the middle to attach them all together. Place a dimensional paper bow sticker topped with a gold foil "love" die cut and a gold resin flower in the "o" on the center. Trim a little stitched "love" from a fabric frame and tuck it under the paper bow. Add a hairpin, blue doily die cut, and blue chipboard butterfly on the top right as shown. Trim a white cardstock heart the same size as the card, and adhere it to the back at the top only to create a card base.

 Supplies: Cardstock, adhesive: American Crafts; Patterned paper, chipboard butterfly, resin flower, hairpin, die cuts (doily, "love"), dimensional paper bow sticker, "love" fabric stitched frame piece: Flea Market by Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper; Sewing machine: Brother; Thread: Coats & Clark
Another card coming in 2 weeks! Haven't thought of the challenge yet though...
