I used a lacing technique, where I tore a 'v' shaped section out of the top patterned layer of paper. The edges of the paper were then inked with a versacolour ink pad and holes were punched in each side of the tear, through which I laced embroidery thread. I then embossed a piece of plain paper with a Cuttlebug embossing folder, and slipped it behind the missing section to give a two layer effect.
The flowers were layered up, with a button for the centre, and placed randomly over the sections of each side.
The heart embelishments were made using stamps from Magnolia. They were coloured by sponging Versacolour ink all over. This one was stamped with an additional flower stamp for interest. Next I covered with Glossy Accents, and a gem was placed in the centre of the stamped flower image and left to set. I love the result....Who say's you always have to use bought embelishments....with a bit of imagination and patience, you can make your own...and best of all they match your colour scheme beautifully.
Thanks you taking the time to look...I'd appreciate your comments if you care to leave any.
Happy Holiday Crafting.
