It's Mother's Day Weekend! I'm looking forward to a little spoiling and pampering, how about you? Do you have any special plans for the weekend? Plans that you know of? Plans you would like to share?
How about a card to kick off Mother's Day weekend?
The other day I was rummaging through my scraps bin for another project when I noticed these Making Memories patterned papers and card stock pieces and how well they matched. They were practically calling out, "Make something with me!" ;)
Okay! I set the papers on my desk to remind myself to create something with them. There they sat for a few days until I was pinning a beautiful quilt on Pinterest when the idea hit me to make a patchwork type of card.
To make the heart I cut strips of paper all the same width, about 3/4" and then I varied the lengths. Like a brick layer, I arranged the strips together and to hold the pieces in place, I used scotch tape on the back.
Once I put together enough strips to cut out the Spellbinders heart die, I ran it through my die cutter. Then with a ruler I made lines and pierced holes at 1/8" increments for hand-stitching.
Since I love dimension, I go through a lot of adhesive foam tape, as you can imagine. If I have a large piece like this heart, chipboard saves me from having to use so much foam tape and it's an great way to reuse cereal boxes and the like! All I had to do was cut another heart the next size down.
Details include some washi tape, buttons and jute. And a little die cut butterfly from My Favorite Things.
I love these mini heart buttons, they have been a go-to embellishment of mine for years! They're from Dress-it-Up, I have quite a stash and use them a lot! Out of curiosity I just looked and counted four projects I used them on in just 10 days! A bit of useless trivia for you! ;)
So that's my lovey, quilt-ish project for the day! I hope you enjoyed it.
Have a fun and memorable Mother's Day!
Oh, I'll be back tomorrow for another Precious Remembrance Stamp Shop installment of Saturday Creations. Hope to see you then! :)
