Made this for a couple of challenges over on SCS today: Use Twine; and Use Pink, Purple, and hearts on your card.
I started with a 4-1/4" square mauve CS panel and created a window in it using a square Nesti. Next I punched hearts and leaves from CS scraps and glued them randomly onto my square around the window. I ran the whole thing through my Big Shot using the Square Lattice EF from SU! to press in the hearts and leaves.
To make the black border inside the window, I cut a 3x3" square of black CS, and used the next smaller sized square Nesti to cut out a window in the black square. I Adhered that to the back of frame.
Next I selected my image from Inkadinkadoo's "Animal Hearts" set, stamped it in Versafine Onyx black ink and colored it with Copics. I Layered the colored image onto the back side of my window frame.
Finally, I cut a 4-1/2" square panel and adhered it onto the back to create the bottom layer. I wrapped pink Waxy Flax twine around the bottom and sewed a button onto one of the hearts with more twine.
TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!
