February!…the month of love and romance! Hello. It’s Samantha sharing my You Complete Me card using Elizabeth Craft Designs Puzzle Heart die and Love Sentiments Stamp set. February happens to be my Wedding Anniversary month – so for me, it’s a doubly romantic time of year and a wonderful excuse (not that I need one) to create cards for the heart.
Step 1: Die cut the two piece Puzzle Heart die using pattern paper and corrugated card stock.
Step 2: Adhere the detailed puzzle pieces to the corrugated heart.
Step 3: Stamp the sentiment on Kraft card measuring 7 cm x 2 cm.
Step 4: Adhere the heart and sentiment to a 10.5 cm x 15.5 cm Kraft card front.
Step 5: (Optional) Add a detailed machine stitched border (using a combination of straight lines and zigzags).
Step 6: Using scissor, cut any left over pattern paper and corrugated card into small uneven strips and adhere these as shown to your card front.
Step 7: Adhere Clear Double Sided Adhesive to the front of White Soft Finish Cardstock (measurement 3cm x 3cm).
Step 8: Die cut one heart puzzle piece.
Step 9: Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of True Red Silk Microfine Glitter. Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.
Step 10: Use foam tape to adhere this puzzle piece to the card front. Embellish the card with sequins and a twine bow. Adhere card front to a A6 card base.
