Heart Snippets


I have this habit of punching assorted little bits of left-over cardstock and dropping them into tiny boxes for later uses. I loved these pale blue and lavender colors together, so I used a MS hydrangea punch to make all the flowers (after embossing them with a Swiss Dots ef) and decided to use them together. I lightly drew a heart outline with a pencil, then after pressing the flower centers with a stylus to shape them, I glued them on one by one until the heart was filled with flowers. The word "Love" was done with my Quickutz and I added some piercing around the edges. This may be the most tedious snippet card I ever made, but I can't duplicate it, because I gave this hydrangea punch away recently to some young aspiring crafters who will probably enjoy it as much as I did :)

I'm sharing this with what else??...........the Snippets Playground #244

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great Sunday!

You made a gorgeous card with your little punched flowers. I just hope the new owner of this punch sees the same beauty in it that you did. Enjoy the evening.

This is very lovely! You have lots of patience to do all you did with this card-embossed the pieces, punched them, cupped them, and then placed them hither and yon in a heart shape. It's a card worthy of all that work.
