Nested Heart Banner and Card

Hi Kerrie here wishing you all a Happy Valentine's Day for this Friday.

While we don't really celebrate Valentine's Day in our house, we do celebrate my love of decorating and who can resist creating soft pretty pink things especially banners as I do love a banner and I bought these gorgeous silver glittery stag heads in the after Christmas markdowns and wanted to incorporate them in my Valentine decorating.

and so I present to you

this very quick and easy NO SEW Heart Banner, that anyone can create and you can create for any occasion.

I created this banner using the largest of the new Craft Concepts Buntings Nesting Dies.
I die cut 15 buntings using an old dictionary, the beauty of using old book paper is that you can cut several sheets at one.

 I die cut 5 sheets at a time and used the Metal Adapter Plate to help with cutting with only 
one pass through my machine

Next using  the 3 smaller sizes of Couture Creations Heart Nesting Dies I die cut 15 of each heart in three different patterned papers.

I then laid them all out working out the pattern

I then applied 6mm double sided tape to only the middle of each heart layered them together and adhered them to the banner. 

here is a closer look

apply double sided tape to the back top of each banner

adhere to ribbon and pinch each layer so the hearts aren't laying flat

I also created a special card creating another one of the banners and adding an ornamental lace die

Firstly I cut a piece of Core'dinations cardstock to 4.5" x 12" and folded it in half, i then embossed the one half using the Celebrate Embossing folder 

I then sanded it back to reveal the core colour

I die cut a Cappuccino Ornamental Lace Die from white Core'dinations cardstock

die cut one each of the heart dies and one of the bunnting dies, layer together

layer everything onto base card and finish off with a double bow and some trinket pins

lastly I added a lace border using one of the Momento Chandelier Ornamental Lace Border Dies and a ribbon bow to this cute little paint tins I filled with Valentine M&M's

 to adhere this border to the paint tin I used Couture Creations 3mm Double Sided Tape as it fits perfectly along the edge

I finished off the border with some Pink Blush Pearls 

I hope you have enjoyed my little projects 
Happy Valentines Day to you all
