As a break from stamping I have used the Valentine Bears CD ROM from Debbi Moore Designs to create this twisted easel card.
For the base of the card I matted the printed paper onto brown core'dinations cardstock. I cut out one of the hearts from the unused paper of the sheet, selecting it so that it so that the writing on the cut out heart would correspond with the wording on the base sheet. I cut this in such a way that part of the heart was used flat on the card and the other part adhered to card and attached to the base with foam pads to form a stop for the twisted easel. I then added lots of glitter to all three hearts.
The decoupage sheet was printed onto glossy photo paper to add shine to the card. In order to keep the thickness of the card down (bearing in mind postage costs) I only used some of the printed layers. I then added more glitter to the hearts and rose.
I applied double sided tape to the lengths of the 3 mm wide ribbons and attached these to the sides of a square of brown core'dinations cardstock. This was then matted onto white card and fixed to the lower triangle of the easel mechanism. I fixed the decoupaged image to this and added gold hearts to the side ribbons.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
