You are here Home / Twisted Hearts-a sketch challenge!
Hey everyone! I’d like to share with you my entry into the Global Design Project #022 Sketch Challenge! This is a wonderful sketch that can be used in so many ways-keep it simple, or jazz it up with layers and embellishments!
I decided to do a Valentine’s Day card, with a twist! I follow quilt makers (no, I don’t quilt, I just love seeing the designs!) and wanted to try to use a quilt block design on this card. Here’s the result:
Other than the cutting, cutting, cutting of all those little pieces, this is a pretty simple card! The inspiration for the heart came from The Bitchy Stitcher (lol, love this blog name!). I printed out the photo of the quilt block at 25% so it would fit on the corner of the page. I marked each with a number, cut, and placed each cut piece on a bigger photo of the same heart so I could keep track of the pieces.
The Designer Series Paper is retired, but take a look at the current DSP “Everyday Chic” “Timeless Elegance,” or “Typeset.” All 3 of those DSP stacks have good alternatives!
Card base is Pink Pirouette, and I used Rose Red and the Love Blossoms DSP for the bitty heart pieces. Sentiment is from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set. The ribbon is Pink Pirouette Seam Binding ribbon.
Hope you like! Be sure to visit the Global Design Project blog to see many more talented crafters!
