Today we're kicking off a new design team challenge "From the Heart" on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog. All of the design team members on the die cut team were challenged to create a card featuring hearts. With the challenge in mind, I created a fun XOXO Valentine's Day card featuring a few of the new dies from Moda Scrap and Els van de Burgt. You'll want to read below as I have a tutorial for you so that you can re-create my card at home.
Using the Entwined Hearts, die cut the small heart with three hearts inside of it twice using pink double dot paper.
Use the Love Sentiment die and cut out the XOXO sentiment out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool, blend Spun Sugar Distress Ink overtop of the XOXO sentiment.
Using the Stitched Fishtail Banners Die, cut the 3/4" banner out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Once the banner has been cut, flip the banner die to the non pennant side and cut out the other side to create the banner pennant on that side. Using a blending tool, blend Candied Apple Distress Ink overtop of the banner.
Use the Stitched Heart die and cut out the 2 1/4" heart using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Use a blending tool and blend Spun Sugar Distress Ink overtop of the stitched heart.
Use the Stitched Heart die and cut out the 3 1/4" heart using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Use a blending tool and blend Candied Apple Distress Ink overtop of the stitched heart.
Using the Heart Background die, cut the background out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.
The last piece that needs to be die cut is, die cutting the
4 1/4" Fitted Rectangle out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.
Pull one medium sized doily from your collection.
Adhere the heart background to the fitted rectangle.
Add foam squares to the back of the doily. Adhere the doily to the middle of the heart background.
Adhere the pink heart to the red heart. Adhere the red heart to the middle of the doily.
Adhere the banner to the middle of the pink heart.
Adhere the XOXO sentiment to the middle of the banner. To finish the banner, adhere a small heart to the left of the "X" and adhere a small heart to the right of the "O".
To finish the card, adhere three small hearts to the bottom right hand side of the layered heart. Adhere the card front to the card base. Once the card front is adhered to the cardbase, apply Glossy Accents to the XOXO.
Thanks for joining me today! Make sure to head over to the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog to check out the rest of the team's wonderful creations. I hope that I've inspired you to re-create my XOXO Valentine's Day card at home.
