Show some Heart...
I'm back on Hochanda this evening at 8pm with the second part of the current die release designed by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions. This week I am showcasing the beautiful hearts dies which are the One Day Special along with the striplets ( you all know my weakness for a Sue Wilson Striplet).
There's a real autumnal feel to today's card but I think it could very closely be classed as spring like in a way? lol
I thought I would hare this card today which features the Fluttering Heart die along with Antlia Gemini die and my new faves the Chrysanthemum die set. I stared by cutting the Antlia detail and one of the outline dies form the top and bottom of a piece of Milk foundation card. I then added a panel behind this in papyrus foundation card using just the outline die to match the detail.
I cut the dies in the fluttering heart die set in papyrus, milk and tan foundation card and layers them as shown above. Next I cut the various sizes in the Chrysanthemum die set in the same shades and using Irene's technique ( one of the ladies of my Breedon workshops) I rolled the petals in tan into the centre to make the centre of the flower and added other shades around the outside. I placed this on a spray of the spring foliage and a messy bow in thin gold satin ribbon from my stash.
