Pretty Little Studio: My Heart Belongs to You

Friday, October 27, 2017

Morning, y'all!  I'm up on the Pretty Little Studio blog today, sharing a card I made just because I was feeling romantic.  Fortunately, Pretty Little Studio has a plethora of products to satisfy that "love"ly feeling.  The most dominant collection I used here is Blooming Hearts; however, that fabulous, metallic, background print is from With All My Heart.  You'll also see hints from Beautiful Day, Summer Vibes, and Marigold.  Enjoy!
I started this card by backing a 3x4 Currently Card, which I had die-cut the phrase from for another project back here, with a piece of Raining Love Vellum.  I then stapled a couple of Soul Mates Die-Cut phrases to its bottom edge.
Before mounting the prepped piece, on white cardstock, with foam tape, I used the die-cut, circular opening to create a shaker pocket which holds Sunsational, Seaspray, and Clear Skies Sequins, as well as three heart die cuts from the June 2017 Freebie package.  The darling Wedding Day Vintage Die Cut was then popped up, with foam tape, in its center.  Both a Blooming Die Cut and Butterfly Bush Sticker, backed with white cardstock and hand-cut out, dress up the bottom left edge of the shaker; and a couple of Acrylic Words hearts rise from the handsome couple.
At this point, the entire piece was set aside to secure a scrap of the Be Mine Gold Metallic print, with gold-threaded, straight, machine stitches, to the Bashful Blue, cardstock, card face.  A length of white string was wrapped, three times, around the horizontal center of the card face and tied, in a bow, to the right edge of the card face.  A snippet of cheesecloth was then tucked in behind the string; and the previously set-aside, prepped piece was adhered, with foam tape, over such, in the center of the card face, to complete the look.
Thanks so much for visiting!  Have a blessed weekend, friends!
