I have blog candy that I will share with you below! Now let's get down to the "Sweet Spot"!
I was inspired to make the beaded hearts when I spotted a similar one in the Wedding aisle at Michaels. Couldn't believe that someone would pay $5 for two of these.....
I purchased a package of white and irridescent beads and grabbed my Glossy Accents. When I cut out the pieces of the card, I took the hearts from the layer to create my beaded hearts.
I outlined the heart with Glossy Accents.
Then I put the beads into the center.
Next, I put Glossy Accents all over the beads.
Here is how they look before they dry.
To make the card, I pulled out my Gypsy and opened up Lacy Labels. I found a lacy label with hearts on it in the top row far right.
I welded the words from Nursery Rhyme and sized them to fit my card. You can see the card in the layer behind.
Here are the pieces cut out. The red paper is from the Imortal Love paper pad that I found at Joann's.
The finished card is 4 3/4 x 4 3/4. I matted the front with the same metallic silver cardstock I cut the words out of. I used Diamond Stickles to give the words some sparkle. As you might have already guessed, this card is for my Valentine!!
