Not only does this notelet feature die-cut elements, it also uses paper sculpting techniques to create the heart topper; once you’ve mastered the technique they’ll be no stopping you.
1. Cut a panel of white hammered cardstock to layer on top of a 6 x 6’’ card blank. Round each of the card’s corners using a 1cm corner craft punch.
2. Die cut a medium heart from teal cradstock and pink foam and stick together with tacky glue. Trim one 7mm strip of teal cardstock, apply tacky glue to the outside of the heart, leave for a few seconds to become tacky, then carefully manipulate the strip around the outside edge of the heart. Snip off any excess.
3. Cut two more strips of teal cardstock measuring 5mm in width, begin to construct the inside of the maze by folding and cutting the 5mm strip into shape, adhere with a small amount of adhesive to the base of the heart.
Top Tip: Paper tweezers and quilling techniques will help this step.
4. Die cut a small heart from pink foam and adhere to the maze with a foam pad. Secure the heart maze centrally to the front of the card.
5. Stamp and heat emboss in silver “You are amazing” onto a blue strip of cardstock. Fix centrally below the heart with more 3D foam pads.
