Heart shaped card tutorial

 Once again the lovely people at ABAKHAN set me a challenge. I received the wonderful Xcut Nesting dies and a A5 Valentines double sided paper pack. At the moment there is a 15% discount on Cardmaking and Papercraft products. This is the first time I have used this brand of dies and they are really good, they give a clean cut. The papers are beautiful designs and very good weight. Here is how I made my heart card.

 Firstly I folded a piece of white card in half and using the largest hear cut out my base card. You will need to position one edge off the card so the card will be joined. Check the second photo. You can position this at the top if you wished.

You will then need to cut another complete heart, using the largest heart die, from another piece of white card. Then cut two hearts, using the next two sizes down, from the pack of pattern papers. You will then have one base card, one white card and two pattern paper hearts. 
 You then need to ink the edges of the paper hearts, I used ColorBox Burnt Sienna ink, and set aside. Next attach the white heart to the front of the base card.  I like using a wet glue for this. Then attach the two pattern paper hearts. Next cut a white heart using the smallest heart die. Then take  clear stamp stamp the heart image in the centre of the white heart and add Stickles glue and then attach to the card. 
There will be more projects using these products to come in the next few days. Hope you found this useful and if you have any questions please get in touch. Thank you.
