Valentine's day is fast approaching so I have a project to share with you made with Stampin' Up! 's petal cone die in the big shot. It uses the gorgeous glimmer paper from our Spring Mini ( click spring mini to view the catalogue) and also the stamp set You Are Loved.
To create the scalloped border around the heart I used a straight strip of cardstock (basic black) and the scallop border punch along one side. Then cut from the opposite side small slits towards the point between each scallop making sure not to cut too far. This then allows you to shape the piece of card around a curved border. I've added some pearls to the heart design and using a versamarker was able to mark and heat emboss the bird with clear embossing powder to give some texture.
The top is tied closed with some of our basic black striped grosgrain ribbon which I cut in half along its length and then sealed the cut edge with a heat gun. I didn't want to use the full width of the ribbon and now have a spare piece for another project.
Hope your day of love is filled with just that..........
