Seamless Backing Heart Pivot by Raquel Mason

Hello my crafty friends! It’s Raquel Mason here today to share a technique from Karen Burniston called Seamless Backing.  This technique is perfect for adding pattern paper to any pivot die.  I love pivot cards because the front is also the inside when you open the card!  Let me show you how I made this special Mother’s Day card.  Remember that you can change the sentiment to suit your needs as the Heart Pivot is perfect for many occasions.

Heart Pivot Easter Card

April 10, 2014

Hi – it’s Karen Aicken here with today’s post, and I have a pretty Easter card to share using the Heart Pivot die. I have shown lots of ways to use the Heart Pivot on my blog, as hearts are good for lots more than just Anniversaries and Valentine’s!

Below the Heart Pivot, I used two labels from the Katie Label Pivot die set, and two banner pieces from Lots of Pops. I lightly sponged over the pattern that embosses on the label, adding two Glitter Dots and hand lettering on the oval.


This card is sized at 4-1/2 x 6″, and I cut a smaller floral paper panel and attached it to the front.
I used Gretchen’s technique of adding adhesive  on the top, right side and bottom only (see her post HERE). Then I opened the card, placed the Heart Pivot Die on the fold and ran it through my Big Shot.  The pivots fold easily, then I was able to snip off any excess floral paper from the front and add adhesive where needed on the floral panel. This is a great way to have your patterned paper panel line up perfectly with the Pivot die and only have to cut it once!


I cut two additional floral hearts from the decorator dies that come with the Heart Pivot, inked the edges and attached them to the heart pivot. TIP:  Open and close your Pivot Cards while holding them in the air, not while they are flat on your work area. You will prevent the Pivots from tearing this way.
I usually decorate my Pivot cards while the card is flat open on my work area.


Just to show you how versatile the Pop it Ups collection is – I wanted a little colour behind the flowers, so used the cloud/foliage die that comes with the All Seasons Tree! I also adore the little Flower dies – AND the Curvy Leaves die. I combined them here, inking the edges and adding some highlights with a Tombow marker. Of course, I also added Glitter Dots to the hearts because I LOVE Glitter Dots.  So much shimmer and shine without any bulk or mess.


In this close up, you can see that I actually stamped the Curvy Leaves and the blue ‘clouds’ with a dot pattern stamp before attaching them to the hearts.


The three little banners were cut from floral paper scraps, using the banner that comes with the Lots Of Pops die set, and I added another stacked flower and two leaves snipped from a larger Curvy Leaves stem.


I added two additional labels to the inside, as a place to write a message and add a signature.


Finally, here is the view from the top then from the back.



I love how you can combine lots of different dies and come up with a unique and special card. Thanks for stopping by today!
