Another card inspired by this months Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge photo inspiration, and incorporating this great scalloped heart shape Fiskars My Funny Valentine punch, for this weeks Less is More Punches or Die-cuts Challenge.
I loved the colours, dimension and theme from the inspiration photo. I saw a technique I found in Beck Fleck's Scrapbook PageMaps 2, which used a circle punch to create a 3D ball, so I thought I would try this technique to turn My Funny Valentine punch into a 3D heart. The heart is created by punching out a series of 5 hearts from red textured bazill. I attached the hearts to each other using double-sided tape (rather than the glue Becky suggested). I discovered that it is much easier using this technique when you have double-sided paper or cardstock. If you do use double-sided paper, then 7 layers created a better visual texture than the 5 layers Becky uses. The best thing about this is that the heart still folds flat if you want to post it - then pops back to 3D when removed from the envelope!
The cute sentiment from Paper Smooches Good Gab was stamped onto kraft cardstock using Blazing Red StazOn ink. This panel was then mounted onto red linen textured bazzill and pop-dotted onto a textured salmon pink background paper from Grace Taylor.
Hope you are having an adorable day too :)
