Fell in love with this beautiful Heart Background die when I first viewed it. I knew I did not want to just use it for Valentine's Day. This will be given as a birthday card in a few days. It was really a fun project and I thought I'd share it with you.
Let’s Get Started…
Coral pearlescent paper: Cut the 8 ½ x 11” paper to measure 8 ½” x 5 ½” and score the long side at 4 ¼”. Fold on score line. Using the excess piece, die cut the Carnation. (I usually cut 2 sets in case I want to add more petals.)
Opal pearlescent paper: Use the die and cut Heart Background. Set aside.
In my stash, I had some extra leaves, cut from various flower sets in the Olive Twist.

Wasn’t that fun? Susan is so talented and a real inspiration.
The Card: Before adhering the Heart Background, you may want to attach a few of the leaves and weave them from the back through to the front. I taped most of the leaves and glued a few. Using a Glue Pen, apply glue to the outer edges of the backside of the Heart Background. Carefully set in place.
Add the Carnation. I use glue dots to the underside of the flower.
