I used the new Mini Wavy Pennants along with the pole from the previously released Mini Pennants to anchor my greeting.
The only thing I colored on this image was the blue shadow, the ground, the cheeks, and a couple shadows on Flopsey. Flopsey was paper-pieced using Kraft card stock. I paper-pieced all the hearts using 4 different layers and I show you how to do that below.
I went for lots of dimension with the hearts.
I can't get enough of the Fringed Perennial Die-namics that was released last month. I made 2 in monochromatic colors and added a Dew Drop to the center of each.
Here is a peek inside the card:
Let me show you how I achieved the layered, paper-pieced hearts.
First, either color Flopsey or paper-piece it like I did here. I stamped the heart cluster on 4 different patterned papers and cut them out as shown. Each time you cut them out, cut out more and more hearts until you are left with a single heart. You can see the way I cut them out to the right.
First, adhere the complete bunch of hearts.
Continue to layer them as shown. I used thin, mini glue dots so they have a bit of dimension. Dimensionals is TOO much, but glue or tape is not enough, so find something in between.
Here they are, all adhered and layered. I love the dimension. Who says you should pay regular postage for ANY card? Not this chick. LOL
Here is the cool new Mini Wavy Pennants Die-namics die.
If you don't have the original Mini Pennants, you'll want to grab that also, so you have a "pole" and more pennant options.
Don't forget about one of my BFF Die-namics, Fringed Perennial. It was love at first sight for me and this die.
