I’ve made a couple of cards over the weekend.
An anniversary card for my husband and a father’s day card for my Dad.
For the background, I started by drawing a diagonal grid with an embossing pen on a piece of lilac card and stamping hearts where the lines crossed, then heat embossed all with fine silver embossing powder.
I designed the heart and cut two on my scan’n’cut. I snipped through one at the top so that I could link them. The cut is hidden behind the other heart.
I added two lengths of ribbon with double-sided tape, folded the ends behind the lilac card and stuck the whole thing on a piece of folded silver card.
I drew the pansy petals on parchment/vellum, coloured them with blendable pencils and cut them out.
After assembling the pansy, I added some yellow flocking powder to the centre and attached it to the ribbon with a glue dot.
The pattern for the heart is available here.
Fathers Day Card
I designed the ‘happy’, cut it on my scan’n’cut and stuck it onto the cream card. I added dragonfly and letter peel offs, coloured with brown peel-off pens, and stuck the finished panel on a folded piece of brown card.
