There was a big birthday at my house last week. My youngest turned 17. Oh my. I’m not sure how that can even be true! Needless to say, I needed a special card for him. He has another card that has hearts on it and he says it is one of his favorites so I used that as a springboard for my card. I reached for the Lovely Layers: Heart Vine dies from Honey Bee Stamps because I thought it was perfect for what I had in my head.
Using an ombré print from the Funfetti Paper Pack, I cut out two of both the outline and solid heart vines. Then I cut another two of the solid to use for dimension. I put the two full vines together, including the extra white layer and let the glue dry.
Meanwhile, I cut the Quilted A2 background and stamped the birthday sentiment with heat embossing. I attached the center vine using the Bee Creative Glue (LOVE this glue) and then played with where to add the side pieces. I attached the bottom one, let the glue set and then trimmed it off with my trimmer. I then used the remaining part for the top, repeating the process. I added the sentiment (after cutting it with a banner die) and a few gold pearls.
The birthday lad loved the card and I’m still in shock that my baby is 17. Sigh. I hope you have a great start to your week and I’ll be back soon with more. Thanks so much for stopping in today!
Really sweet card – I think it could be used for many occasions. Especially love that blue/green ombre color combination!
This is a wonderful card for a young man. The hearts are sneakily disguised as leaves so as not to make too big a statement. Happy 17th birthday to your baby!
