This card was quite a bit of work, but I love how it turned out !
All items used on the sample above were from Stampin' Up!
Riding Hood Red card stock and ink
Very Vanilla card stock and craft ink
several background stamps
heart shaped punches
I started off with a basic trifold card. The base started at 12" long by 5 1/2" tall. I scored it at 4" and 8" so it would become a 4" x 5 1/2" card when folded.
I punched dozens of hearts then stamped them (use decorative papers for a quicker project).
Starting on one side, I laid the hearts out in a diagonal line from near the lower left corner up to the top right corner. I found it easier to start with the larger hearts then add on the medium the nsmallest hearts, randomly placed and trying not to put two of the same on top of each other. Glue them in place.
Carefully trim away the excess vanilla trifold card base around the tops of the hearts. OR trim off a diagonal piece from along the top of the card before starting then adhere the hearts along the cut edge.
Flip the card over then lay out another row of punched hearts lining them up with the hearts on the opposite side; glue in place.
This is a fun, wow project that can be done with any sort of punched, die cut or stamped shapes.
The samples below use decorative papers
Front side with all hearts already adhered. I start with the largest then build them up
opposite side, unfinished
You could leave this side unfinished, but when folded the middle portion shows so you will want to at least cover up the hearts in that part so that it looks nice when folded.
Opposite side showing the starting process of matching up hearts. It is not really necessary to do the entire length if you don't want to, do the middle section at least so that when the card is folded you don't see backsides of the hearts as seen below.
Finished with the entire length of both sides of the card covered with hearts,
folded then wrapped with light pink organdy ribbon.
Thanks for looking !
