Hearts on a lattice frame - 6" square card - Day 72 of my 366 day challenge


Hearts on a lattice frame - 6" square card - 
Day 72 of my 366 day challenge

Hi Craft addicts!

So, as the Rugby is on this weekend, I am making a quick card today for my challenge. It is a 6" square card which has been decorated with a lovely hand coloured peel-off sticker which is on various layers of different coloured cardstock.


Hearts on a lattice frame - 6" square card To start with I placed the peel-off sticker which I got from Craft Creations onto some plain white cardstock (or good quality digital paper) and coloured it in using red and green Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. Once dry, I then added some Sparkle to them.

I also stamped the heart design in the centre of the panel using red Memento ink and placed it on to a green flower which I had cut out using a Woodware punch. I then stuck that on to a pretty scalloped edged panel (I think it is a Tattered Lace one.

For the main lattice frame. I used a Tonic Studios die and cut it out in red linen effect card. I then stuck the heart panel onto it.

Using Cosmic Shimmer glue, I then placed it on the white card and added some pearl, diamond and black embellishments.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment "The best thing to hold onto in life is each other" (From Altenew) in black Memento Luxe ink and embossed it using a holographic powder from DoCrafts Papermania.

I also drew some faux stitches around the panel to decorate it using a black pen.
