Create a Card

This week's card was created using the Close To My Heart paper packet called Flirty.  The stamp set used is C1524 Words of Comfort.  The hearts were cut out using the CTMH Artiste Cricut® cartridge.

Here are the instructions:

4 ¼” x 5 ½” side fold card base

4 ¼” x 5 ½” Goldrush card stock
4” x 5 ¼” Flirty Background and Texture paper
1 ¾” x 4” Flirty Background and Texture paper

Stamp sentiment and small heart on heart with Goldrush.  The easiest way I have found to split the stamping is to only attach the part I want to ink on the block and fold the rest of the stamp over the back of the block. 
Attach to Goldrush heart. 
Punch another piece of Goldrush card stock with your favorite edge punch. Then cut it to 2 ½” wide at center of scallop and 4 ¼” long.  Attach the Flirty Background and Texture paper piece Goldrush side up.
Attach Flirty flower Background and Texture paper to Goldrush card stock.
Attach your scalloped Goldrush piece ¾” from top and 1 ¼” from right side of card front.
Insert three green brads.
Attach heart with foam squares.
