For my card, I've used Queen of Hearts Bonnie, which is available at the Digital Delights store. I've cut a heart aperture in a red A5 card, then added some self adhesive red glitter paper to the background. I've then added a couple of yellow swirls cut on the Cricut, and some buttons. The Queen has been coloured with promarkers, with some red Stickles added to the hearts on her dress, and gold to her crown. I've added some jump rings to dangle her from the top of the card. The heart at the top is a button covered with the red glitter paper. The yellow heart is cut with a Nestie, with yellow Stickles round the edge, then I've attached 3 mini playing cards to it that have been inked round the edges in red, with foam pads for dimension. In the other corner are 3 red heart gems, which I've added onto the top of 3 larger hearts punched out from card that has been inked and stamped with text. Lastly, I've stamped swirls over the card with Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder. It's very different to my usual square cards, and I had fun experimenting.
I'm a 44 year old mum of 2, a daughter of 19 and a son of 8. I haven't worked since having my daughter as I became ill and was diagnosed with lupus 14 years ago. I wanted a hobby that would take my mind off everything, so crafting was suggested to me. I started in March/April 2008 and have been having fun learning lots of techniques ever since.
