It’s a funny thing about this navy heart card. The heart isn’t navy, but the card is.
Let’s face it. It’s navy and it’s got a heart.
You know, this free Designer Series Paper didn’t really speak to us when it was first released. But it certainly speaks to us now!
And the more we look at this card, the more we like it! But what do you think?
Our original plan was to make this with a Seaside Spray card base, but with the help of our viewers yesterday, we switched the plan to Rococo Rose.
You can watch how we designed the card here on YouTube or watch the video below. We’ve cued it up to where Ann started the project.
She shows different concepts of how the color of your card base can affect your card.
I do have to admit that the Shimmery White card stock makes it pop. You’ll also notice in the video how Ann talked about an alternative for when you don’t have the right color ribbon in your supplies.
My favorite huMAN said that it look really dimensional. That’s a real step forward for him because he normally only comments on the colors we used.
Of course, if it were up to me, I might have mentioned to Ann to use that silver for the heart. I’m just sayin’.
Did you notice that we reversed the embossing on the heart? We planned that. It wasn’t a mistake.
Happy Birthday Dolly Parton!
It’s also National Popcorn Day so celebrate as you wish. But a big congratulations to Amanda Bales who achieved Eagle Scout status at the young age of 14!
We are impressed! Aren’t you too?
Navy Heart Card Making Tips
I just noticed that Ann didn’t stamp on this card! What what she thinking?
We listed both the standard Cut & Emboss Machine and the Mini Cut & Emboss Machine in the card making supplies because the dies we used could be used on either machine. Ann talks about which one she recommends in the video.
And you did know that the Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper is free with a $50 order, right?
