Happy Anniversary to CreateForLess! Our favorite online store to purchase craft supplies is celebrating 15 years in business this month. You can use this card to share a special moment with someone you know who is celebrating a special occasion, too.
Die cut several sized hearts using a set of heart dies in graduated sizes and a die cutting machine. Lay them aside to use later. Mix and match them using cardstock and patterned papers for a fun look.
Cut an oval using the Floral Ovals Die by Spellbinders from a piece of patterned paper (You’re Invited by Bo Bunny used here.) Also, die cut 2 ovals using the Large Classic Ovals Dies by Spellbinders from cardstock. These ovals should be graduated sizes that will lay on top of the one cut from the patterned paper.
Cut a piece of 1 ½” ribbon to be a little more than the length of the card. In this case, the card is 7” long so the ribbon was cut to 8 ½”.
Lay the ribbon face down on a piece of thread and tie the thread around the ribbon making sure to pull it tight and then knot it so it won’t come undone.
Attach the ribbon to the card base using a thin line of glue and allow it to dry. Then, attach the sentiment piece using the glue.
Stack some of the hearts together adhering them with a glue pen. Leave some of them especially the smaller ones by themselves to use to fill in the spaces. You can use the picture on the right as a guide as how to place them or create your own design. Tilt some of them, leave some in straight rows and let some hand off the card for a great design look.
Finish the inside by stamping or writing a special message on the inside.
Share some happy wishes with someone on their next special occasion with this full of hearts card. Change the message and use it to send some birthday wishes or a congratulations. This month, take a minute and be sure to wish everyone at CreateForLess a very happy anniversary.
