First of download and print the Heart shaped card template from Cuddly Buddly.
Do the same with Barbara Anne Williams Digi Stamps – Sentiments One
From the Heart shaped card you will need template 2 (the big heart) x 4 times on your cardstock. Print one more to use as guide when cutting the chipboard.
Before proceeding further, use the heart shape mould and the casting powder to make one heart. Let it dry to be used later.
Cut 2 heart shapes from chipboard. These will be your bases!
Using the floral embossing folder emboss one only paper heart.
Have brown shades on all paper hearts as shown.
Now, glue the 3 paper hearts on the both sides of chipboard hearts leaving aside the embossed paper heart.
Take the chipboard heart with the one only finished side and with a pencil draw short lines (about 5mm) close to the edge.
This is your piercing guide to cut with the art knife. This side will be the front of the card.
When done, take the brown ribbon and sew it as in the photo.
Remember to secure with some glue at the end.
Now glue the embossed paper heart.
Emboss the letter stamp using versamark ink and copper embossing powder
With your die cutting machine cut 2 flowers with Marianne Design Creatables Die – Branch & Flowers 1 (large flower) and add brown shadows with the Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad – Frayed Burlap.
From Barbara Anne Williams Digi Stamps – Sentiments One use the “with a thankful heart” sentiment and add some brown shadows too. Cut using the flower die and wit the art knife shape a heart.
Mix some white pearl paint with just a little bit brow paint. Paint the heart.
Place one metallic corner at the bottom of the second chipboard heart.
Use some ribbon but glue it only at the edges so it can hold a greeting card or photograph.
Open one hole at top left side of the chipboard hearts and set a copper eyelet. This is where the chain will go throw to hold the two parts.
Start embellishing the front of the card. First place 3 white feathers at the right side. Then the brown ones. If you find them too long, shorten them a bit to fit better. Take some copper wire and turn to form spirals. Have the pearls on the pins and curve them a bit to unable to stay up when hot glued. Glue your the pearled paint heart, the paper and the satin flower.
Take a white feather, use some black paint at the peak of it ( as been dipped in ink!) and few drops on the “the thankful heart” sentiment heart and glue on it.
Then place it to the left inside of the card.
