heart to heart

now, that was a favourite program of mine whilst growing up, and now, of course we can see the delicious Robert Wagner as DiNozzi Senior in NCIS.

Anyhoo, on the card.

Black & white is the current theme over at Lunagirl, current as in the challenge closes in a few hours - just getting mine in, in the nick of time.

I found this adorable image over on The Graphic Fairy's site, and thought it would be perfect as a heart shaped easel card. Only problem was I had to find a template! Good ole' Google!!

found this lovely link to a template recipe  on a lovely blog  - craftycardmakers blog

backing paper from a digi-kit
Hobbycraft white pearls & heart pearls
image from the Graphic Fairy
black pigment ink
doCraft paper roses x 2
Docraft paper posy x 2
black card
Tattered Lace 'Cherished centres' die
white card

Using the CAP2, I drew the heart shape card, printed it and cut round, remembering not to cut the 'fold'. I then printed out the heart again, this time to use as the topper, printed out 3 lots of backing paper (needed to be a certain size) and using the topper, cut out the heart shaped papers and stuck them onto the relevant sides of the card. I imported the image and resized to fit the topper, printed it out and inked the edges with black pigment ink to give it a distressed edge and stuck it to the blank topper. I then inked round all the card edges with the black ink.
Started to assemble the card by affixing the topper onto the front (used pads to raise up so it stood out slightly), to make a stopper I used the Tattered Lace die 'with love' stuck on a black dot, but it looked a bit lost....... had a fumble round my desk and found the big paper roses, perfect! Stuck the sentiment next to the roses..... then the bottom piece looked empty.... another fumble and I came up with the paper posy's/posies and the 3 little pearl hearts.
