Hearts and Flowers

I made several of these for the girls in our Rainbow Assembly to deliver to patients in a small memory care facility. The girls were supposed to assemble the pieces I had cut for them, but unfortunately the meeting was cancelled because of the weather. Since we would not have a meeting before they were to be delivered, I assembled them. The die cut hearts are by Spellbinders. I used the Petite Flourish background stamp by Gina K Designs stamped in Red Velvet ink on the scalloped heart. The sentiment is from Geo Thanks by Claire Brennan for Gina K. Designs. The roses are die cut from the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero Kit for January. They were cut from red cardstock and highlighted with white pigment ink and white pencil. Then I used green cardstock to cut the rosebud and the stem. I trimmed just the rosebud from the red cardstock and glued it over the rosebud cut with green cardstock. The rosebud coloring and assembly was inspired by Jennifer McGuire’s blog post and video here.  I am terrible at tying bows, even with a bow maker, so I used a mini bow die from Divinity Designs. I cut it with red cardstock and glued it together and it was the perfect size. Taking a large, thick needle, I punched a small hole at the top of the heart and used gold cord, also from Gina K Designs for a hanger. I had a lot of fun doing these and was really pleased with how they turned out. Hearts are really the thing right now and this works for these challenges:

Mod Squad – You’re All Heart

Cuttlebug Mania – With All My Heart

Dies R Us – Hearts, Love, Valentines

  3. Judy, your project turned out beautifully. The rose, the background, the bow are all a WOW! Love that you made it work on all of those challenges too!

  4. Judy, this is beautiful! I’m glad you had fun making all of them. There’s a lot of work involved, but they will definitely bring joy to the recipients.

  5. This is so pretty, and I love that you made them for memory care patients. My mom is in a nursing home and she receives cards (not this pretty though) from various organizations and they are so welcomed! Thanks for playing with Just Us Girls!
