I've created this card for a challenge currently on at Loves Rubber Stamps: How Charming! We need to use a charm. Well I have charms! Actually I have too many things! So I went shopping in my stash and found these heart charms that would work very well! I also used 2 different Whimsey Stamps. This adorable little girl is called Hopeful. She was a gift from my friend Judith, in Ontario. I also used the Love stamp from the Magical Mini Letter Seals set. I used my Stampin' Up markers to colour her in and accented some bits with a metallic pen.
I folded a 6x12 sheet of green shimmer cardstock from Die Cuts With A View. (LOVE THIS SHIMMER STUFF!) Freehand cut the heart, leaving a hinge at the top of both crests. Used K& Co 6x6 paper from the Life's Journey pad and again freehand cut the heart from the centre of the paper. Used exactly the same paper on the inside to give the card a 3D look. Used some hemp cord to wind around the top left and hold the charms. Behind my coloured cutie is a Grapevine Wreath heart sticker. Stamped and punched the Love seal and placed it in the top right.
On the inside is a punched heart placed over the cord to help keep it in place.
Go shopping in your stash! You'd be amazed what you'll find! These charms were found a long time ago in the dollar store! Hugs!
