This past year it has been very difficult to meet up with these sweethearts, but last month I was so happy to do so. We had a grab bag swap and we exchanged our holiday inspired ATC's.
This month I am a few days ahead of the game, as I am usually rushing around on a Friday night looking for bits and pieces to complete my project, not fulling completing it until I rush out the door the next morning , blowing on the stickles to get it dry before I arrive at event.
This month the only requirement was to use the cardboard substrate. So this is where I began. I had a collection of paper and embellishments in a little bag so I went with the heart theme and created my art from this find.
The substrates are covered with a fun group of background paper.
The paper was sheeted as a 6x6, there was one of 3 different prints to work with.
More paper was used to create hearts and patterned strips.
These were glued on, after a brown string was was wrapped and tied around the card.
