Little Hearts and Flowers Card
Change of pace for this card today - dainty and pastel - using some digital backing papers designed by Carol. I used Photoshop to size the purple hearts paper to fit my card, and digitally matted it onto the green backing paper. I then created a copy of the matted backing, and reduced it in size to make the topper. Fixed the ribbon to the backing paper, and then glued the backing to the card base. The topper is fixed with 2mm foam tape to give a bit of dimension. The flowers are punched out of a purple square that I printed by picking the colour off the hearts, and the flower centres are punched from the green backing paper design. The flowers were shaped slightly with an embossing ball tool. Little clear gems to finish.
