Katie Sims, our lovely challenge hostess this week has got a fabulous challenge for everyone this week...
There nothing better than a non-traditional shaped card! There are so many cool shapes that you go with but today, I decided to go simply with a round card.
I began by cutting my card base using Flourishes' Classic Black Cardstock using a Silhouette file I found. I cut a matching mat using some dark grey cardstock and some fun diamond patterned paper which I stitch on with red thread. Then I created a simple heart pocket, stitched the edges of the front panel and flipped back the front heart shape.
Sky Blue" Seam Binding Ribbon and added a fun little charm from the "Simply Charming" stamp set. I added the simple word "Peony" from the new "Flowers for Jan" stamp set in both Memento "Lady Bug" and "Summer Sky" inks.
Then I began to create my pocket tag. First I stamped and masked my floral images from the new "Flowers for Jan" stamp set using Memento "Black Tuxedo" ink onto Classic White Cardstock. Then I took one of my smaller heart dies and traced the outside to get a heart bottom to fit in my pocket.
I then fussy cut my blossoms and the heart base out and coloured them using the following Copic Markers:
(Plus: B000, R14, R17, R22, Y13, Y15, Y23, YG21, YG23, YG25, YR0000 & YR000)
