Polkadoodles Challenge 8 – Shaped Card

Friday, 26 February 2010

Easel cards are so popular at the moment, so I had a go at making a heart shaped one. I found the instructions here but I used my Cricut to cut out the heart. Had a bit of a nightmare as I managed to get glue over the base, but thankfully it doesn't show. Used the Heart to Heart papers from the Love and Cherish CD to cover the template, a few half pearls, plus a bit of faux stitching to match the hearts.

I’m off to Farnborough today for the Make It show with my mum. Hopefully we’ll be back with lots of goodies.
