So here is the sketch:
I have been busy making Christmas cards over the past week and initially thought I would make another based on this sketch, however, I changed my mind and went with a birthday card instead.
So here is the card I created:
The papers I selected are some of my favourites. I love the combination of the bright yellow, red and green in these papers. They come from two different paper companies but I love how they work together.
I decided to make my circular elements different so one is a doily the other a simple punched circle. Then I added the hearts and rolled flower. Both the scalloped heart and rolled flower were cut from felt.
I wanted to create some layers and depth with this card so out came the roll of foam mounting tape. I really like the way each element can stand out with a little foam tape to differentiate the layers.
I decided to layer the tiny heart and stitched it down the centre. Then I crumpled each layer of the heart.
