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.
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!
