When I finished making the sewing-themed note cards last week, I had lots of scraps of patterned paper left over. Rather than just recycle them, I decided to punch out hearts galore and make some simple all-occasion cards.
Supplies (all Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Paper: Cool Caribbean long notes, 6" x 6" Collectable "Unforgettable" paper pad (My Mind's Eye)
Accessories: Small Heart punch, Dimensionals, rhinestones, Mono Multi liquid glue
I made a few different versions of this card using different pattern assortments and arrangements; for one of the cards I used just three prints and aligned them in diagonal stripes. To make it easier to line up the hearts, I made a simple template with graph paper. It's easy to do, and here's how:
Step 2: Determine where and how far apart you want the shapes to be placed on your card. Mark the corresponding places on the intersecting lines on the graph paper.
Step 3: Using a paper-piercing tool, poke holes through the points you marked in Step 2.
Step 5: Adhere the punched shapes over the dots marked on the card. You also could use the dots as a guide for placing ribbon or strips of paper.
Step 6: Embellish your card as desired.
