PAPER PIECED VALENTINE
Somewhere I saw a card with a heart using this type of design. My mother used to make beautiful quilts and this kind of design made me think a little of the quilts she made by sewing various designs of fabrics together.
I chose 5 coordinating papers from a 6 x 6 pad. Then I put all five layers into the Cuttlebug to cut with the Spellbinders Scalloped Heart. After they were cut and stacked I cut them apart using the same lines on all five.
The next step was to just shuffle them around so that one of each
pattern was on each heart. These pieces were all mounted on a plain
white heart as a base. These are the other four combinations.
My mother had asked for a Valentine that she could send to one of my cousins. I added a die cut lacy heart which was made using a Cheery Lyn Designs die. These were mounted to the front of an A2 card,
My husband And I celebrated our 40th Anniversary in 2008. Our home is in a small Iowa town and I feel very blessed in the life I have had. We have two married daughters and six grandchildren who have brought so much joy in our lives.
I started Heartwarmers from Vicki when my favorite craft store went out of business. I have sold items over the years to at least 35 countries and all 50 states. It has made it possible for me to "meet" so very many wonderful people.
Be sure to click on the "Heartwarmers: The Store" links below. I will be posting information about items I sell. Also check on the NEW "Clearance Items" page for stamps I am clearing out of my own personal inventory.
I hope you will check out some of the cards you will find on my page and I'd welcome any of your comments. If you find any cards that you would like to case, I would be honored.
