Tonight My Favorite Things (http://www.mftstamps.com/) released three new sets: Be Mine, Happy Occasions and Punny Farm!
I am pretty tired from the release party so I am just gonna show you a card I created for the My Favorite Guest competition. (You can check out all the details in the MFT forum on http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/! You still have time to play along!!!)
I cut out the heart (using red cardstock) and then I traced it on the designer paper. Why???--first to make it more sturdy and, second, because I still create free hand hearts like I did in grade school--fold paper and cut half the shape so the halves match!
I created the center part using Nestability dies and...here is the fun part---the heart doesn't open, rather the center circle does. I used the word window punch (SU!) to connect the front circle to the one inside.
To do this, I cut three plain circles all the same size--two vanilla and one red. I stamped the sentiment on the inside circle. I attached the front panel to the back panel using the word window punch (the tab goes on the back of the front vanilla circle and then adheres to the back of the inside vanilla piece.
I used the red circle to cover up the word window punch that you could see on the back of the front panel! Hope that makes sense...I think I just confused myself!
This view might help explain it: (See how the word window doesn't show on the back of the opened section...the red circle covers it!)
Materials used: Stamps--Be Mine (My Favorite Things); ink-black, red; cardstock-vanilla, red, SU! designer paper; word window punch (SU!); Nestability dies; cuttlebug; ribbon; clear button; ribbon (Offray); dimensionals (SU!).
Have a great day!
