Hearts Collection Framelits Tutorial

Remember yesterday "Wish" card? I had to try something similar eh! So this is my first. i admit I took a different road but that is exactly what cards are supposed to do...inspire you to make one your own style.
Let me share with you my journey through pictures.
Hope you enjoy it and spark in you the desire to try different things and do it your way. Valentine's Day is around the corner. This one is for my DH...sshh, don't tell!
Cut your CS to 8 1/2" x 5 1/4" (NOT 5 1/2"), then position your
Apothecary Framelit centered on the card front as shown.

Cut with your Big Shot up to halfway, back it up NOT to cut
the whole image but only the front of your card front.

You should end with a card front like this.

Add your Hearts Collection Framelit to the front of your card as shown.

You will end with a cut out like this.
Proceed to emboss only the front of the card
with the Woodgrain EF. (Not Shown)

Using a scrap piece of Early Expresso CS
die cut the letter "U" with your Typeset Alphabet Bigz Die

Now cut two pieces of DSP More Amore
A. 5" x 4" for the front card
B. 4 3/4" x 3 3/4" for the nside

Cut two pieces of  Early Expresso CS:
A. 5 1/4" x 4 1/4"
B. 5" x 4"

Adhere each A. dsp with the A. CS
and the B. size dsp on the B. size CS
Place Tombow Multipurpose Adhesive on the
back of your card front to adhere to your separate piece of EE CS.
You could also use Stampin' Dimensionals for added dimension.
The 5 1/4" x 4 1/4" piece of EE with the 5" x 4" dsp
should fit good lining up with the back of your card.


Stamp your sentiment from Loving Thoughts Stamp set
on a piece of dsp

Cut your sentiment with your Stampin'Trimmer as you wish
I think mine was about 1/2" wide

I made a small dot with a pencil where I wanted my banner to end.

I then aligned my dot with the top of the triangle on my
Petite Pennants Punch. You may also use a square punch or your scissors.

Tada! Erase the pencil mark if any.

I position things to see how I wanted them to fit.
Especially my banner. It should not go more than 1/4" off
the card border. It won't fit in your regular card size envelopes if you do.

I place some Linen Thread through one of my buttons
and cut it like that, then I placed a glue dot to hold
AND adhere to my card.

Went around my card twice with Linen Thread and tied a knot
Not to fancy, is a card for a man.

I used glue dots to place my embellishments where I wanted them.
Finish by placing the other cut piece of CS and DSP
on the inside of your card, unless the dsp is too dark to write your note.
In that case use a light color CS instead of the dsp.
