Welcome to February. It's time for a new challenge at House of Cards
This month it's a technique challenge
This was a definite challenge for me. The only cards that I have ever created have been either square or rectangle.
Since it's February, I thought that I'd try a heart-shaped card.
I cut out two hearts from 100 lb cardstock using this Memory Box die
The sentiment is from Paper Smooches Word Salad. I added a variety of flowers from the STAMPlorations Frames and Flowers stamp set.
To adhere the two heart pieces together, I used a score board to score a horizontal line, approximately 0.5 inches from the top of the heart. I applied the adhesive to this small area and adhered the "top" piece to it for a top opening card.
I tried a circle card (I was on a roll - ha ha!)
The sentiment is from Simon Says STAMP - big scripty greetings. The stencil is also Simon Says STAMP - swirls and dots. The inks are distress inks (spiced marmalade, picked raspberry, twisted citron and peacock feathers). Same procedure to attach the two circles - scored horizontal line, add adhesive and adhere two circles together.
Come join us at House of Cards - what shape will you use?
