World Card Making Day 2011 Blog Hop!

Hi Friends,
Happy World Card Making Day to everyone!!  What a fun celebration to participate in!  Thanks for stopping by on your WCMD tour!! 

The card and puffy heart I made features vellum.  The base is a panel of vellum embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.  I used a Scalloped Heart Nestibility to create a window in a piece of “Prima Romantique” paper and placed the embossed vellum behind it.  I layered it onto a light pink cardstock base and added dimensional dots onto the scallops with a Viva Pearl Pen in "Salmon"
Next, all I really had to do was punch out shapes from the vellum and glue them onto the card.  I used a Sizzix Sizzlet branch die, a MS fern punch, and a Punch Bunch Medium petals punch (for the large rose).  I inked the petal edges of the flower with chalk ink so it would blend softly into the opaque color of the vellum.  I grouped additional small Prima flowers with the punched-out vellum shapes and glued them to the main panel.  
Next, I created a little "puffy heart" using Vellum.

I started by die cutting two pieces of vellum with a Nestability Scalloped Heart die.  Next, I stamped a sentiment (Inkadinkadoo) onto one of the hearts with StazOn Jet Black ink.

Keeping the two pieces together, I pierced holes around the edges and sewed them together using red/white twine.  I left  about a ½” inch opening.  I then cut some cotton balls into tiny pieces and stuffed them inside the heart. 

Once it was filled, I closed the opening and glued on a little ribbon holder.  I embellished the finished heart with some die cut leaves and Prima “Say it in Crystals” swirls.


TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!
