Lesley Walden - Challenge 12

Lesley Walden

Heart Swivel Card

Fold the front of the card back onto itself, open out and using a template draw a heart on the left hand side centring on the fold line.  Cut out the left half of the heart.

On black card card, and using the same heart template, cut two hearts and a slightly smaller one in white card.

For the front heart, stamp the 'love birds' onto white card, colour in and extend the branch, glaze with clear embossing powder and stick onto a black heart shape.  Stamp the 'mistletoe' with versamark and heat emboss with detailed white powder,  Add a few punched white stars and stick the left hand side onto the front of the card.  The right hand side should fit the cut out gap.

Open the card and lining the other black heart up with the half of the hart that shows through, stick it down (not difficult but hard to explain!) and decorate with white punched hearts.

Stamps 'all you need is love' onto the white heart, colour in and then stick onto the inside of the card so that it lies behind the front heart when the card is closed.

Finish off with some gold pen borders and some stick on glittery hearts.
