Bingham Heart - Memory Box

Hi, everyone.   Wow....what a week.   My dad went into the hospital unexpectedly for a few days.  He's back home now and we're all trying to get back to our normal routines.  For me, that means finding a moment to post a new card I created for the Memory Box Design Team.

This is a card I designed featuring the new Bingham Heart die and corresponding Grand Heart die both from Memory Box.  The print papers are from the new American Crafts Collection XOXO.

Here are some quick and easy instructions:
  1. Die cut Pool Gingham paper using the Bingham Heart die and run the Xyron to make it a sticker.
  2. Die cut Currant paper using the Grand Heart die.  Adhere the Bingham Heart to the Grand Heart.   There will be pieces of the Bingham Heart that hang over the edge.  We don't want those to be sticky, so take a bit of baby powder or corn starch and rub it on the sticky parts.  This removes the stickiness.  Set this aside for now.
  3. Cut a piece of scrap paper (the word paper) 1 X 4 1/2" and adhere to a piece of Bubblegum paper 1 1/8" X 4 5/8".
  4. Cut a piece of scrap paper (the black hearts/flowers paper) 1 1/2 X 4 1/4" and adhere to a piece of Bubblegum paper 1 5/8" X 4 3/8".  Add these two layers to the front of a Pool Note Card.
  5. Attach Bingham Heart with foam tape.
  6. I added three rhinestones to the bottom right of the card, but you could also add a sentiment instead.
  7. finally, I added Turquoise Stickles to various parts of the Bingham Heart.
This is one of the cards I'll be teaching at Scrapadoodle in Peoria, IL on Monday, January 28.  I hope you can join us!

 Have a great week!
