Rippled Heart...

Happy wednesday,

Its that time of month again when I do my monthly workshop at Breedon Priory.  I love this event as we get to try lots of different techniques!

Back to today I thought I would share this card as the colours just sing to me!

I stared by cutting the Rippled striplet 6 times across a piece of iris foundation card matching the pattern each time by rotating the die each cut.  I backed this with wisteria foundation card.  Next I cut the straight heart form the laced heart die into the background.

I then added a strip of coconut white fouantion card cut with the rippled striplet and backed with blue dusk.  I added this over the hole left from the heart then added the heart die cut back on top with mounting cushion.

I cut the laced heart outline in white and added the fluttering heart die cut cut in wisteria over the top. Finally I made a wisteria chrysanthemum with a white centre and wispy fronds cut in iris and the chrysanthemum leaves cut in white.



  1. Morning John, a gorgeous card love these colours together and my favourite flower.
