Patchwork Heart Card

Twitterpated Designer Series Paper, a Square of Card Stock & the New Stampin' Up! Framelits Heart Collection are used to create this lovely Patchwork Heart Card.

I started by cutting a Square piece of CS slightly larger than the largest Framelit heart, I then cut my DSP to varying width & lengths and glued to the CS (although if you cut them all the same length  as your square and then angle your heart die you will have the same effect without as much waste and this will make it easier. Oh! Boy, I should have thought of that sooner!) I then used the Framelits Heart with the Scallop edge to cut my heart with the Bigshot. I cut four pieces of DSP into triangles and glued them together onto another square of CS. I wrapped the Real Red Pleated Satin Ribbon around the edges gluing with the sticky strip as I wanted the ribbon to stay put. I then glued the patchwork heart to the front and used a smaller framelits heart  to cut another heart which I sprayed with Blushing Bride Smooch Spritz Stamped with the forever & Always stamp from the Loving thoughts stamp set and embossed with vanilla embossing powder. I then used a glimmer brad to accent and attached with a dimensional.

I like the results although I do feel that it could be a little less busy. I will probably make another one trying out the method above for my strips and instead of wrapping the ribbon around the whole card just I will try it just around the heart itself. We will see what results I get.

Hope you all enjoy!
