Hello dear friends! I’m very happy to be here. I needed to create a birthday card for a little girl, but I wanted to use non traditional birthday items. That’s when I thought about using these hearts stencils and dies, which are usually used more on Valentine’s Day, and turning them into a cute and girly birthday card.
Here are the steps for this card:
-In a piece of heavy white cardstock, place the first layer (larger hearts) of the Stencil Hearts Duo and ink with the tones of choice.
-Once the first layer of ink is dry, add the second stencil on top and do the inking process again. I went for a multicolour theme, but you can also do tone on tone.
-Leave the second stencil layer on and add glitter paste to some of the hearts. Remove the stencil and let it dry.
-Next comes the confetti pocket heart. For this I used the larger of the Simple Dotted Hearts die and cut on thin plastic sheet protectors. Seal the edges with a heat tool leaving a small opening. Fill the pocket with your favourite Studio Katia confetti, (I used Rainbow Pastel Wheel), then seal the opening of the heart. Then, adhere the thin frame of the small heart cut out of black cardstock around the shape and cut the excess plastic. If you don’t have a sealer, you can make your pocket with the traditional acetate sheets.
-Trim the main panel to a 5 1/4″ to 4″, add foam tape and adhere to an A2 cardbase.
-Stamp the sentiment from the Simply Hi set, on black cardstock, add white embossing powder and heat set.
-Fix the confetti pocket heart on the main panel by adding a thin layer of Studio Katia liquid glue. It might help to add a heavy object on top to help with the adhering. Add the sentiment to one side.
-Finally, add assorted colourful pearls all over the main panel.
This is a fun way to stretch out your products and to use them for themes other than the one originally created.
I hope you like reading about this project. See you next time!
