Faux Quilted Heart


ETA:  I found the blog with the technique for the heart.  It is http://www.juliedavison.com/ (it is called Faux Iris Twist)  Hope this helps anyone interested in this technique.

I saw this technique on a blog (can't remember which one, I will try to find it and link to it) and wanted to try it.  I used similar papers for the heart (Sending Love - retired SU), Very Vanilla CS, Real Red and Crumb Cake CS.  I stamped the Crumb Cake base in Crumb Cake ink with the En Francis BG stamp, added the strip of VV punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch and a RR strip punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch.  I then added the RR and VV layers. I used the Mat pack & Piercing tool to pierce the holes around the VV square and added little punched hearts in the corners.  The quilted heart techinque was created by punching a large heart in the center of my 3" VV square and layering the strips behind the heart. I used dimensionals to add this layer to my card.  I hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by.
