Red, White, and Black card stock
Holiday Inspirations red ribbion
Jet Black StazOn Ink
Black Rubber Stampede Ink
Cuttlebug folders use:
Script embossing folder, Stamp die and "Love Stamp" embossing folder
First, cut the red card stock to the size you want. Distress all around the edges of the red card stock with Heidi Swapp distressing tool ( or use some scissors --be very careful not cut cut yourself though). I then made my heart (I just traced my Creative Memories Heart Pattern) on the red card stock. Next, I used a tutorial that the ever so crafty Pinky Hobbs has on her blog ( here's the link to it if you want to check it out http://blueyecicle.blogspot.com/2008/02/exploding-heart-picture-tutorial.html ) for an exploding heart. I inked up the rolls of the heart with my black StazOn inkpad, set it aside. Then, I cut my white card stock and ran it through the Cuttlebug "Script" embossing folder. I Crinkled, flattened, and then inked up the embossing. Misted with water and dried with a hair dryer). Set that piece aside. I then, cut my stamp from a piece of red cardstock, and ran that through the cuttlebug love stamp folder. I used a q-tip and dabbed it into my ink pad then rubbed over the embossing. Finally, fold black card stock to make a 5 1/2 x 7 1/2 card, and assembled the rest of the peice working from the bottom up ( ribbon, white, card stock, red exploding heart, black tulle, and love stamp).
Hope you like the card!! Give it a try or try making an exploding heart they are a lot of fun!!
Thanks for looking and have a scrappy day!!
