So Many Hearts



Morning guys!  Do you ever start something and then half way through, think, why did I do this?  Perfect example is this card!  I knew that I wanted to create a sort of petticoat border on each side of the card which gave me bunches of tiny fall out hearts.  Then I thought how cute would it be to have a heart out of the hearts in the centre, follow me?  I got up to about the fifth row (after about half an hour!) and thought, WHAT was I thinking! LOL   You know the story, though, you are already too  committed because you have already gone so far, you might as well finish, right!  So I feel the memory of that (long) day when I look at this card.  It is quite pretty in real life, I think.  I was rather happy with it when finished, but boy oh boy, I never thought I would get there!  I used the Grateful Lattice and cut it in white to go on my coconut white card background for a tone on tone look.  Next I cut the borders.  These are the dies from the "On The Edge" die set (I never got around to using any others but the heart).  I started with the pale blush card on the outsides and worked up to deeper shades and then repeated the pattern.  I cut a simple heart from a nestibility set I had with me and then did the same thing with the fall away hearts, working in rows of lighter to darker colours, then repeating it as I worked my way up.  They overlapped slightly so it is hard to tell that they are indeed hearts unless you look at the very bottom single one (sorry it got a bit soiled on it's trip back home from the States).  I had tied a ribbon around the bottom before I attached my borders, then added a messy bow tied from Flesh coloured seam binding.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with one of the tags from the Charmed I'm Sure set and dusted the edges with Victorian Velvet distress ink.   I  tucked the corner of the heart tag under a heart Dazzler on my bow with a bit of pastel Bakers Twine.  I finished the card with a double mat and a pierced layer as usual.  Oh well, I am pretty sure it wasn't great weather that day so what else was there to do that day but glue itty bitty tiny hearts on a larger heart! LOL    Finished dimensions are 6" x 8" in size.
I did post the blog candy winners yesterday afternoon and for some reason, they posted below yesterday's card!  So please scroll down to see if you have won because they have not (as of this typing which was earlier than this will be posted) been claimed.  All for now, Sue x

alimecca said...

Hi Sue
Very pretty card but you must have the patience of a saint! I would probably have started the heart and then got sick and thrown it in the bin and done something else ( possibly with microbeads lol) . Thought the new dies were lovely and did buy some but really missed you on the show. Spell binders not the same without you.

Bosquie said...

My first reaction was "how did Sue do this?" .Very clever but as you say time consuming.You do have a wonderful way of seeing things. love this card xX

Carol H said...

Very pretty girlie card today.

Izzwizz said...

My goodness, don't you just hate it when that happens? Looks fab though Sue, so it was worth it. I love the lacy petticoats. When our petticoats were peeping from under the skirt, people used to say "Fred's dead" to warn you to hitch them up. I wonder if you ever heard that? Great card and congrats to the blog candy winners. Maddy x

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue,
You now have officially the patience of a Saint. Thank you for your enduring patience in making a really pretty card, that would have to be for someone you love very much for that amount of work that you have put in to it.
I'm just wondering what kind of baggage allowance you must have or you are twice as lucky with double the amount of dies, one here and one in the States.
Congratulations on gaining the amount of followers which your regular crew are not surprised at.
Take care
Love and crafty hugs

Hi Sue. This is a really pretty, girlie sort of card today !! I think it is just beautiful !! I love every thing about it. I know it took a lot of patience but it was definately worth it. I bought the new set of Christmas dies last night on c+c. ( I feel really guilty now cause I am supposed to be saving my pennies for my holiday.) My other half was said I could have them for taking care of him with his broken wrist and elbow after he fell over the dog bed !! Congrats to all the winners.
