My Non-Valentine Heart Challenge Card

Handmade birthday card

So, yesterday I challenged myself to come up with a card using the Heart Framelits that is not a Valentine's Day card. I ended up with two! I came up with a card that I liked so much that I decided to keep it for my Creative and Crafty Die Cutting Newsletter.(click for more information.)

Since my CCDC projects are exclusive to that newsletter, I had to create another card and I decided to make one based heavily on one presented to us on stage at Leadership.

I loved the layout of a card presented by Shelli, the owner of Stampin' Up!, and I knew that I would be recreating it in some way. I decided to use the Nature Walk stamp set since I did not want a Valentine theme.

I loved the way she sewed the graduated  hearts to the center of the card I used the largest heart for the Baja Breeze heart and then a dropped a couple of frames to cut the heart from First Edition Designer Series Paper. The smallest heart I used was cut from Crumb Cake card stock. All of the hearts were accented with Soft Suede ink.

 The sewing was so easy with the Linen Thread. I just pierced holes on the fold with the paper piercer and mat

pack and then sewed the thread through the holes with a needle (a large one). I did not add many large embellishments to the center of the card because I wanted it to somewhat close. There is a lot of decoration in the center, but there is still plenty of room to write to the recipient.
