follow your heart

Because you deserve a green card this week...

Trimmed PP to fit front and adhered, careful to “center” pattern. Die cut arrow from reverse of PP and adhered. TIP: Decide where to place sentiment and find that area on second piece of chevron PP to enable  perfect alignment of the pattern later.  Adhered washi tape strips to that area before die cutting the Follow your Heart Kelly Purkey from Simon Says Stamp sentiment. Also die cut sentiment twice from kraft, stacked them, then adhered aligning pattern.  TIP: Stacking die cuts creates shadows which allows you to use shapes cut from patterns on top of the same pattern without the shapes getting “lost” in the pattern. Added a distress inked heart for a punch.

Supplies for follow your heart:
Paper:  white cardbase The Paper Studio, PP Basic Grey 12x12 
Ink : Distress
Tools: die SSS, arrow die Sizzix
Other: gold washi
