If you like what you see here and would like to try it for yourself, I encourage you to enter it into the challenge on the AWDML Blog! There are fabulous challenges and a great sketch contest that you have until the end of this month to enter! Check it out HERE!
For all of these cards, I started with plain white cardstock and cut a heart out of it with my Cricut. I then removed the cut heart and worked with the paper left behind-- the negative space. I matted it, and popped it up with some foam tape for dimension. Here's where it gets fun! I used 4 different techniques to back the negative space left by cutting the hart. In the first example, I simply used some brightly colored patterned paper (from Echo Park!).
In the next example, I used some basic blue cardstock which I ran through an embossing folder.
Next comes some twine! I simply ran a bunch of ahesive along the card base and worked the twine back and forth until it covered the amount of space that would show through the heart. I love how it turned out!
And finally, I covered a portion of the card base in liquid adhesive and fit a bunch of red buttons on to the space that will show through the heart. I love the interest and dimension that this technique creates!
Again, I encourage you to celebrate A Walk Down Memory Lane's 9th Birthday with us and check out the challenges and contest on the AWDML blog! And, of course, make sure you check out all of the goodies in the STORE while you are there!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you were inspired!
