Birds and Hearts......


I made this Valentine's card using the new to Crimson Cloud Sizzix Cards Phrases Set No. 2.  We have recently added Sizzix as a new range as we just love the quality of their dies and embossing folders and they have some fabulous designs. So watch this space for more of the Sizzix range!

I love these card phrases sets as I find that die cut words are so versatile as you can cut them out of so many colours, patterns and textures. They come as a set of three dies.

This card was super simple to make. Once I had die cut the birds and words, I cut out the hearts several times to use as a banner and as wings for the two birds.

On a white card panel, I laid out my die cuts until I was happy with the positioning. Once I knew where the birds were going, I drew a line in grey pen to hang my heart pendants from and glued them all into place with the words.

I attached a strip of grey patterned paper which I punched with the Martha Stewart embossed scallop punch.
As it says on the tin, this punches a scalloped border as well as embossing it which gives extra dimension to your project.

Once I had threaded some coordinating grey ribbon through the holes in the punched strip, I mounted my topper to a red card base, and decorated my bow with a spare die cut heart.

So nice and quick and bright!
