Now onto my card....
This has got to be one of my simplest designs.....the card was made due to a request from my Grandson for his girlfriend....Whoo Hoo I hear you saying and yes we said the same thing. I had strict instructions, no fancy work, no flowers and definately nothing raised off the card....as if I would lol!!
This was hard!
Then I saw the image designed by Lexi Lee for Fairy Dust Crafts, and knew exactly what I was going to do.
I printed the digi image called 'Heart on a Wire', available from Fairy Dust Crafts, onto white card, then using promarkers I coloured the main heart in bright red then added tons and tons of stickles....well he didn't say it couldn't glitter!!
I found a packet of heart stickers from Paperchase in my stash, perfect size, perfect colours and stuck them onto the little hearts that are on the 'wire'. It wasn't too raised, just a little.
This was beginning to be fun!
When it was all dry, I cut around the image in the shape of a fat heart and another one in white card using scallop scissors, I used chalk to shade the edge of the main heart and glued them both together. Then I have to confess I stuck it to the card base on sponge pads to raise it just a little bit, to give interest to the card, you understand, don't you!!
The blank ticket is originally from Raindrop Echo Designs, designed by Ann Vento, I blanked the middle out myself on the computer and added the text that my Grandson wanted on the card....
Now all I have to do is show him the card and hope it's simple enough!! Hope he like's it.
Thanks for looking and leaving me such wonderful comments.
Love and hugs
