Tuesday Tip/Technique with a Week of Hearts - Day 3

Hello friends
Today I'm going for the longest blog title award!

I'm featuring another heart card and I'm sneakily incorporating a little
Tuesday Tip/Technique :)
The die set used for this card is an oldie and a favourite of mine -
Potpourri but it can be easily adapted with many other Spellbinders dies.
Prepare your card base just slightly larger than your label shape.
Cut/emboss a selection of hearts, all white apart from one red heart.

Here's the tip: use a score board (or ruler) and score down the centre of each heart and fold.
Try this with lots of die cuts - it really makes them dimensional and pop!

Apply a thin layer of adhesive to the reverse fold line of each heart.

I positioned my hearts onto the card base and added a gemstone to the
single red heart.
Simple but effective.
 A close up picture.
 Stop by tomorrow it's another project featuring...yes you've guessed it...hearts!

Also if you've finished your Heart Banner Charity Kit please send along a photo.

Take care friends.

Hi Christine. This is a real stunner, it may be simple to do but it is so effective and it is another one that is perfect for the men too. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with tomorrow : ) Take care.

Ps sorry haven't made up my Charity kit yet, life has taken over and I didn't want to rush it. I'm going to be working all week but I'm going to devote my evenings to it hopefully.

Morning Christine,
Stunning design, you so have the knack of adding just a tiny little detail that alters the look of the whole card, that one tiny gem stone on the red heart, it's so tiny but just makes the design!
Thank you my lovely for the amazing inspiration!
