Pat Carr's Stamp Camp April 2013 - Heart of Hearts

Hi there,
I have another Shoebox card for you today.  The flowers and leaves are made with the Small Heart Punch from Stampin' Up!  The centre of the flowers are 1'' strips of black card snipped finely and rolled around a fine skewer.  I did find that you need fairly fast drying glue to keep the petals in place as you work or a lot of patience, I had a lot of trouble stopping them from moving as I placed each petal against the other. I do think the end result is very effective though, what do you think?

Stamps: S/U's Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Card: Whisper White, Basic Black, Old Olive, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo
Ink: Stazon Black, Fine Black Pen
Cool Tools: Small Heart Punch, Handheld Heart Punch, Scallop Edge Border Punch, Corner Rounder Punch, Sizzix Cloudy Day E/Folder, Dble Sided Tape, Tombow Multi Purpose Glue, Dimensionals
Have a fun day, come back tomorrow for another card.
