When Wenche announced her January-challenge over at 3ndypapir, I knew I had to join whenever I got the chance. Yellow is a color that I love, but never really actually use. So with her challenge being about using the color yellow, I happily obliged.
I added a number of Prima-flowers to this card (I esp *love* the big one here, the one with the bling in the middle!), some veeerrry old Prima-bling from like 2007 or so (haha! They’ve remained one of my faves thru the years though!) & stuck some Maya Road star-pins in thru the flowers. OH and see the letters? Awesome poolside-thickers from American Crafts – I couldn’t find any R or A’s left in my sheet so I cut this Q in half so it became exactly these two letters I needed. Ahhh, love it when the design allows you to do such stuff and turn out smashing =)
And as for the heart – I have a heartshaped minibook (by Maya Road) that I’ve torn apart & used in layouts and cards instead. I knew I wanted to use it, but at the same time I thought covering it in one sheet of patterned paper sorta would be boring when I hadn’t envisioned doing much else with the card itself.. So this time I simply cut a number of strips (with various widths), taped the one end lightly and started weaving the strips until it was large enough to cover the heart.
Before using the chipboardheart I painted the surface just in case it’d peek out from between the paper…then I covered the heart in adhesive and attached it to the woven mat.
Then all you need is to trace your heart & cut it out. Pwetty, eh?
The woven heart makes it look more “fun” …it’s going to a six year old girl, but the card itself could just as well be given someone who’s turning 60 too.
