BSS MONDAY IDEA - HALF HEART CUT OUT

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

Today's idea is a half heart cutout on the front of the card.

See how the heart is half cut out on the designer paper and then the
heart with the little bird on it fits inside of it on the card.


Had to show you a close up of this little sweet bird.  Love now the ribbon around
his neck is forming a heart!


This is the inside of the card.  The sentiment came with the little bird, so cute.


Card Recipe

Stamps - Art Impressions - Tweetheart Set (4363)
Dies - Spellbinder's Nestabilities Classic Hearts (S4136) and
Classic Scallopped Heart (S4-137)
Paper - Card Base is white card stock 5x7.
Designer paper is Carta Bella - Devoted 6x6 paper pad
The blue dotted designer paper is cut at 5x6 and adhered to the
white card front with a half inch of the white card showing at the top and bottom.
The hearts designer paper is cut at 3x6 inches.
Using the largest scalloped die, I placed half of the heart die
on the very edge of the right side of the heart paper and cut.
Adhere the heart paper with the cutout,  to the front of the card,
along the left side. Cut the next largest scalloped die with card stock.
You can use any heart shape if you don't have the dies.
Stamp your image on white card and color.
I cut the little bird out leaving the tail and his one foot outside the
second largest plain heart, which will fit into the scalloped heart perfectly.
There is a great tutorial on how to do this at
http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/outoftheboxwithnestabilities/
Adhere the two hearts and place just inside the cutout on the card.
An action wobble was included with the stamp set, so that the little birds
head wobbles when you move the card.  (NOTE) The action wobble needs
 to be trimmed way down to fit onto the back of the birds head.
Lacey border trim is Martha Stewart
Ticket on front is from the same paper pack.
Ribbon is from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day. Until later............

Love it Sue. I had to really focus on the half of a heart. How you make something this simple look so "WOW". It shows real talent and a good eye for the unusual.
