How To Guide - Step 1

You need to create a heart aperture stencil, out of the copy paper, that will fit in the lower right corner of your card, as seen in the finished design. 

You can either use a nesting heart die or, like me, you can go for a more "organic" look and draw your own heart freehand, then cut it out!! Go on...be brave.  

How To Guide - Step 2

Postion your heart stencil towards the lower right corner of the white card, cut to 6 1/4 x 4 1/4" and using your blending tool, apply the Limeade ink within. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Ink up this very beautiful stamp, from the Imala Adventure set, with the Midnight hybrid ink and stamp on to your inked heart. I wanted the plant stem to grow up through the centre of the heart, but you can stamp yours wherever you want.  

How To Guide - Step 4

Ink up the sentiment stamp with Midnight and stamp to the left of your image, but so they are connected, rather than having a floating sentiment.  

How To Guide - Step 5

Adhere your artwork on to the Blush mirri card. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Wrap some twine around your card three times, then tie in a bow and trim off any excess. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Adhere on to your kraft card blank with foam pads. 

How To Guide - Step 8

To finish, add clear adhesive water drops to your artwork.
