Heart punches to Pattern Paper..

Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing a card that I created  for Kreaxions Punches using 4 in1 punch #911.



In order to create the heart background, you're going to need a lot of heart punches. Using a rainbow of colored cardstock, punch #911 saving the hearts. 




To line the hearts up perfectly, I used a little trick. I stamped a polka dot background on a piece of cardstock to use as a guide to glue my hearts. If you don't have polka dot stamp, you could always use graph paper. Holding the graph over your cardstock, poke a hole at each of the intersecting lines into your cardstock. 




When you're done, trim the heart background. Add a piece of contrasting cardstock, ribbon, bow and a sentiment and you have a Valentines Day card.

I absolutely LOVE THIS! I think you might be mildly crazy for gluing all those tiny hearts down, but I think we all do something like that now and then and quite frankly your results are SO WORTH IT!!! LOVE. THIS.

What a wonderful card! It's also a great way to use all those itty-bitty scraps of paper that I always feel so bad throwing away! I have to get a good small punch.
