Here is how my card was created.
Card base 8-1/2″ X 5-1/2″ front of card embossed.
1.  Cut 4 Garden Notes Oval Grapevine Wreaths from brown cardstock.  Cut section out of each  shade with distress ink.  Lay out to form 2 hearts attach pieces using Kids Choice Glue.  Attach 1 heart on top of the other. (see photo)

2.  Using White Soft Finish Cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on top cut 1 heart with die cut hearts from Joset’s Heart Cutouts die set and 1 solid heart saving little hearts as well.  Coat top of heart that has cutouts with Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter burnish in with finger.  Coat solid heart and little hearts with True Red Silk Microfine Glitter burnish in with finger.  Attach white heart on top of red heart using Kids Choice Glue.

3.  Using Els van de Burgt Love Sentiments die set die cut “Be My Valentine” from White Soft Finish Cardstock with Clear Double Sided Tape on top.  Coat with True Red Silk Microfine Glitter burnish in.

4.  Using Susan’s Garden Notes Rose 2 die set create 3 roses and 3 buds from red cardstock and leaves from green cardstock.    Shape and build roses and buds. (Susan has a great video to help which you can find here.)

5.  Cut 1 set of Garden Notes Ladder Fern from green cardstock use a little distress ink to shade give a little shape by using small ball tool and molding mat.

6.  Assemble Card by Attaching grapevine heart to left side of card front using Kids Choice Glue.  Place glittered hearts in center of grapevine wreath attaching with dimensional tape.  Add ferns, roses and leaves on left side of heart using Kids Choice Glue.  Add little hearts and “Be My Valentine” on right of card.

ECD Design Team Focus on New Releases for Becky Seddon

2018-01-06 Cage of Love1

Hello my crafty friends welcome to my blog.

Today I have created a card to showcase the new release of designer Becky Seddon at Elizabeth Craft Designs.  I have used Free As A Bird and Heartfelt Love and there are 10 more dies that are in the release so be sure to go to visit Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog to see all the great creations from ECD 2018 Design Team.  These dies are available now.

Although I have not done a tutorial for this card I wanted to include pictures of how I used the large heart from Becky’s Heartfelt Love die set to make my heart card.  The first photo look closely at top of paper it shows how you place die just slightly above card fold so that it doesn’t completely cut off fold giving you a hinge.

Brushed Silver Cardstock

Red Glitter Cardstock

Yellow Marker

White cardstock
