Happy Valentines Day! I hope that you have had a chance to play with the new Birch Press Design 2018 Valentine’s Release products! Today I have a video tutorial for you to create a beautiful glittery heart using the Stitched Hearts and the Fiori Heart Layer A craft dies. With this card sending love does not have to be a Valentine but for anytime you want to send some love.
I began by cutting the largest stitched heart using a 5 1/4″ x 4″ panel of white cardstock. Then I cut the Fiori Heart Layer A also of out a piece of white cardstock. As you see in the video I layered a couple of pieces of 2″ wide score tape on to the back of the panel so that the adhesive was sticky to the front of the card. Set the Fiori Heart Layer A die cut into the stitched heart opening. This is where it gets fun, add your glitter one, two or even three different colours one at a time and use your fingers to work the glitter into the heart. Use the backing from the score tape or even just a bone folder, burnish the glitter to keep it attached to the card and not all over whomever touches it. Add your sentiment to the panel. I used the Sending You clear stamp set. Attach the panel to your 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ card base. Isn’t the sparkle beautiful?
The two shades of glitter almost creates an ombre effect.Another look at the whole card. Thank you for joining me today and I hope I have inspired you to use some of this years Valentines release to make a card to show someone how much you love them any time of the year. Pop back in on Friday for some more Birch Press Design inspiration.
