I created this card for another Hope you Can Cling to Challenge. Teresa Kline was the hostess and challenged us to use at least one heart on our card.  At first I wasn’t sure if I wanted to use a stamp image with a heart on it. After looking through my images I just couldn’t decide what to use so I went another route.


For my heart I used a a Nestaboard Scallop Heart as a base. I used a slightly smaller regular heart Nestabilities die to cut and emboss a piece of MME Lost & Found Market Street. The heart was sanded and adhered to the Nestaboard.

A 3 3/4″ x 4 1/2″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock was embossed with the Cuttlebug Brocade Embossing folder. Two different pieces of Market Street paper were adhered over it and the two bottom corners were rounded. The layers were stitched to a 3/16″ bigger piece of Kraft cardstock.  Parts of a Finesse Silver Rhinestones were  adhered to the upper right hand side and lower left of the layers.

A piece of seam binding that I had stained a while ago (not sure when or with what color, it was in my ribbon box) was tied around the horizontal layer and topped off with a button. The heart was adhered to the left of it after part of a doily was adhered underneath it. The red flower is a Prima flower, the smaller yellow ones are Recollection flowers (Michaels brand).

A sentiment from Verve’s Blessing stamp set was stamped to the lower right side of the layers with Frayed Burlap Distress ink. Everything was adhered to a 4 1/4″ x 10″ piece of white cardstock, folded in half.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
