3-D Valentine's


Time for a new Challenge at Heart 2 Heart Challenges.  The challenge this week is to complete a 3-D project.  I completed this door hanger with the help of the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge.  The Art Philosophy Cartridge has many 3-D projects to choose from.  I chose the heart box and added 3-D flowers.


All supplies by Close To My Heart.

Z1686 Cricut Art Philosophy Collection
D1283 Say It In Style
D1482 Love Life
1272 Cranberry Cardstock
1388 Colonial White Cardstock
X5918 Topiary Cardstock
Z2116 Cranberry Ink
Z2155 Topiary Ink
Z1732 Seam Binding Ribbon (avail 2/1/12)
Z1708 Sparkles Flourishes (avail 2/1/12)
Z1326 Sparkles Assortment

 
Design Tip-The flowers were cut with Colonial White cardstock and then sponged with Cranberry Ink.  The Chipboard banner was also sponged with Cranberry Ink.  I layered the Seam Binding Ribbon on the top of the heart to get the ruffled look.  Folded small loops and glued them overlapping on the inside of the heart.

I have also entered this card in the following challenges:

Allisa, how do you get your flowers swirled so perfect? I use tweezers and mine are never so swirled nicely-or tight! Pretty and simple! Love that cartridge!

Allisa said...

I roll my flowers with a paper quilling tool. Sadly CTMH does not carry the quilling tool, but I would think you could get one at any major chain store. I bought mine about 15 years ago at a trade show. Quilling was the hot thing at the time. Honestly I don't think I ever quilled a single flower! The tool really comes in handy for rolling the Art Philosophy flowers though!

Melissa said...

Looks like I need a quilling tool. I love the 3-D flowers, but every time I roll them they look horrible. I LOVE your Valentine box!

Allisa said...

Just an FYI-the quilling tool will roll the flowers tight. I then remove the flower from the tool and the let the flower unwind slightly before gluing.
