Sorry I have been so quiet. It’s cold here and snowy. That makes me want to snuggle up at the couch, not stamp. Weather like this makes me so lazy!

Yesterday’s tutorial on Splitcoast was for a Swinging Z-Fold Card.  I used the new Nested Heart dies from Spellbinders and Verve’s Glad Tidings along with Bo Bunny patterned paper I picked up at my LSS to create this card.

The Heart was cut and embossed out of Neenah Solar White cardstock and sponged with Stormy Sky Distress Ink and the snowflake were stamped with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. The snowflakes were cut out and topped with Recollection brads. Silver Kaisercraft Rhinestones were added to the heart.

White May Organdy Ribbon was tied around right hand side of the card and hit with the heat gun to antique. I added  a Maya Arts Trinket pin through the bow. It helps keep the card shut by holding the heart down.

Here is a video for the visual learner:
