Red Heart ...

Hi Everybody,

This card is a bit of a cheat because the hearts,  on the front,  have been pinched from another card that was sent to me by my "Film Crew"

They are foiled and so pretty I couldn't let them go to waste and so I removed them from that card and here they are.

The white panel has been em,bossed with one of the 8 x 8 folders from Crafters Companion and it is the Chantilly Corner

The sentiment has been stamped and embossed in gold and added to the banner.

The  two ribbons are tied separately  with the  Bow maker   and then added together with a button over the knot.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx


  1. Hi Christina, I love the recycling idea, I too have collected bits and pieces from shop bought cards to be reused. Your card is lovely, like the double bow and background.

  2. I never waste anything, my neighbours all give me their cards to recycle, it all helps the charities I support here. This card is gorgeous as per. xxx

  3. Where did you get the sentiment to fit the sb banner?

  4. Morning Christina, lovely card, love the use of the hearts. I'm in the same camp as you when you get pretty embellishments and put them to a different creation. Would be rude not to. Have a good day.

  5. A pretty card Christina and such a great way to recycle or upcycle(or whatever the right word is) other materials. I have lots of things from other cards that I have kept, but keep forgetting about using them. A good tip. Hugs, Jen xx
