Patchwork Heart Mother's Day Card

I originally saw a similar torn/patchwork heart card years ago in Papercrafts' Magazine. I recall they used blue/brown papers and I've always loved that original card. I CASEd it at the time, but it was before I had a camera, let alone a blog! I decided to re-create the torn/patchwork heart using Lifestyle Crafts Nesting Hearts (CC-HEARTS-01) by cutting the next to largest heart once from white CS (for a backing) & 3 from different Making Memories "Sabrina" patterned papers. I  hand tore sections from the patterned paper hearts and attached them to my CS heart,  edging my heart with coordinating ink. Next, I cut a 3 ¾” square from decorative CS, punched all corners with my ticket punch & attached it to a 4 ½” Bazzill square card, adding coordinating ZVA Creative Pearls at the corners. Die cut your next to smallest Nesting Oval  (CC-OVALS-01) from white CS, stamp a sentiment & edge with ink. Attach eyelet & jump ring to ribbon & tie around card front and secure patchwork heart over ribbon. A fairly simple card, but still pretty, I think!
For a great sale price right now on both Nesting Hearts & Nesting Ovals see Creating Everlasting Memories!
