DETAILED HEARTS VALENTINE

My sweet husband has another name for this card – Make one, Make one free!

01.31.20 Detailed Heart HeatherUsing the new Detailed Hearts Die does give us 2 cards for the work of 1.  Well, maybe there is a little work on the second card, but not much.  This new die cuts out LOTS of hearts at one time.  The 5 1/4 X 4 pieces of Whisper White and Pretty in Pink (sadly retired) are mounted on Sizzix adhesive.  The die cuts the white frame for the card at the left and the pink outline shape that fits within the frame.  Be Mine Stitched dies are used to die-cut the larger hearts and the new Heart to Heart stamp set provides the sentiment.  So, as I mentioned above, the die cuts white frame but what happens to the white outline shape?  Enter the magic of Press’n Seal Food Wrap.  After running the die through the Big Shot, a sheet of Press’n Seal is pressed onto the card stock which allows it to retain its shape.  After the white frame is pressed onto the Highland Heather card front, the white outline shape is pressed onto a red card and PRESTO, see what you have!

01.31.20 Detailed Heart RedA second card magically appears!  It helps if you finish the card but most of the work is already done!

The directions may sound complicated, but it really is not hard and of course, I am here to help you.  Of course, if you are paying attention to this post, you should be asking – BUT what happens to the pink frame?  Actually, the pink frames from my cards are gathering dust on my desk.  Every card made following this process begets another card and the cycle has to stop sometime.

I hope you can come to February Stamp Camp – Thursday February 6th from 11 am – 6 pm, Friday February 7th from 12 N – 6 pm, and Saturday February 8th from 9 am – 4 pm.  Come when it is convenient for you.  Everything you need will be provided – even water and soda pop.  The cost remains $14 and $3 for each additional card.  There is a heart tin add-on available for $2 if you wish to purchase one of the 18 remaining.  There will be a an upcoming blog post on the tins.

Please let me know which day you plan on coming and which cards you want to make.  This helps so much in planning and paper cutting.

By the way, did you see the butterflies?
