I cut out a heart shape from a piece of scrap card and laid it over the area where I wanted to place the heart. Then with some red ink I used a set of edging stamp designs to fill in the heart shape. I found that stamping closer together produced a more defined heart shape.
One difficulty in doing this was sticking the very delicate petals to the card. I used double sided tape for this. It worked reasonably well as it can’t bee seen through the petals however I was very close to tearing them. I tend to use double sided tape for my cards because it is less messy than glue and you dont have to wait for it to dry. Also some glues I have used in the past loose their stickiness and parts of the card fall off. I’ve found double sided tape is a lot more reliable. Also you can buy 3 for £1 in most bargain or pound shops.
The background for this card is Emma Bridgewater paper and I used gel stamps for the lettering.
I’ve been to lots of weddings over the last few years so lots of cards to make. Here are s a few of simple designs I made with my stamps and heart punches.
