For my project this week I have made another 3D item. I had so much fun last week with my flower vase I thought I would make something other than a card with this lovely image, In The Frame Flourish Heart by Hope Jacare Doodles.

I printed the image onto red cardstock. I wasn’t too sure how it would come out but it is a very crisp image and all I needed to do colouring wise was use some glitter gel pens to colour the leaves and hearts.

I frehand cut the heart out on the outside edge and then used this as a template to cut a back section in red card and a chipboard centre to stiffen and stabilise my frame. The sentiment is from Raindrop Echo Design, printed onto white card and coloured with the red glitter gel pen.

I assembled the frame by mounting the front section on 3d foam squares, adding this to the sentiment and layering the chipboard and back section in place. I added a small loop of ribbin onto the top and did a final trim so all layers matched up. I then distressed the edges with a small black ink pad and added the ribbon rose as a decoration at the top.

As the UK is actually having some proper wintery weather with deep snow I hope everyone stays warm and safe and what a perfect excuse to do some crafting J
