Hello again crafty friends!
Today I am back with a fun project made possible by Scrapbook.com!
They have provided me with some really fun products to get crafty with and I made 4 mini notecards with their pretty Nested Scalloped Hearts. I will provide you with all the steps that I took so you can make your own set of note cards as well! Let's get started!
First let me share with you a picture of all the wonderful products that Scrapbook.com provided to help me get crafty and make these adorable note cards!
Here is a list of all the products in the picture with links to where you can purchase them!
I started by cutting out 8 hearts with the largest Nested Scalloped Heart die and then I embossed 4 of them with 2 different embossing folders. I think they look great with all of that texture and detail!
I left 4 of them plain so they could be the backs to the cards.
The next step was to make the notecards out of all the hearts. I took the 4 plain hearts that had not been embossed and I scored them a short way down so I could fold them down and apply Permanent Adhesive Roller to them and adhere them to the embossed hearts.
Now it's time to decorate the hearts. For the first 2 hearts I used the Altenew Rose Flurries dies and Lawn Fawn Scripty Thanks and Love dies to glam them up!
I took the Cardinal Red Premium Hybrid Ink and Candy Shop Pink Premium Hybrid Ink and sponged the 2 colors on to the Neenah Solar White A2 Scored Notecards using two of the
Jumbo Sponge Daubers. I repeated the same process for the leaves but with green inks.
I just love how using the 2 different color in inks blended together gave a nice varied pattern to the roses. After the roses were cut I did splatter some extra ink and white splatters on them for extra interest! I love how easily the Jumbo Sponge Daubers picked up the ink and spread over the
Neenah Solar White A2 Scored Notecards. They are bright white and sturdy enough to make ink blending a breeze! The next step was to add the Lawn Fawn Scripty Thanks and Love dies to the hearts and I knew that some gold foil card stock would really dress them up! I just love the way they came out, the gold foil really stands out next to those beautiful roses!
For the next 2 hearts I actually used 3 different sizes of the Nested Scalloped Hearts.
The second layer on top of the embossed heart was cut with a beautiful patterned paper from
Carta Bella called the Rustic Elegance Collection. I placed one of the Nested Scalloped Hearts over the cluster of roses that I liked in 2 different spots on the patterned paper and I had a customized die cut with exactly the roses I wanted. I am so in love with this paper, it's texture is lovely as well!
For my top layer on these notecards, I decided to use vellum so the beautiful roses would peek through softly. I certainly didn't want to cover them up and the vellum was the perfect choice to heat emboss my sentiments on. I used a smaller Nested Scalloped Heart cut from vellum and stamped 2 sentiments with the Large Acrylic Stamp Block in Black Premium Hybrid Ink and then heat embossed them with clear powder. I just love how crisp the Black Premium Hybrid Ink stamps!
I thought it would be fun to hold all 3 layers together with some fancy paper clips for some extra interest. It's hard to hide adhesive behind vellum so the paper clips were a fun and practical alternative! I just love the layered look and I think they came together nicely!
Here is another look at all of the gorgeous notecards all together again:
