Tweet Heart Card

Wow! How the week just flies by! I'm having so much fun bringing Inspirtaion Tuesday to you, and I hope you are enjoying it just as much! Don't forget about last weeks I.T. drawing, the winners will be announced here tomorrow. (if you haven't enterd the drawing make sure to check out last weeks I.T. project for details!)

This week we are making this darling shaped circle card! Thanks to my girlfriends over at The Stamped group for inspiering ME to create this card. (waving!)

Supplies: You will need a trimmer with scoring blade, scissors, adhesive, pencil, 2 Pattern Papers (Making Memories Noteworthy line here) Pink, Teal, Red,& Brown cardstock (Bazzil of course!) Stamp (Bird byAutumn Leaves) Ink (chesnut Roan, Rouge, & Azurite ColorBox chalk ink), Paper Flower (Prima Forever Flowers), White Gel Pen (UniBal Signo), Scallop Scissors (All Night Media), Photo Corner Punch (EK Sucess Paper Shapers), & Ribbon.

Lets Get Started!
Cut Pink cardstock 8 x 5.5

Score your Cardstoak in half (4.25") & fold.

Using a Circle template (plate, lid, bowl, whatever you have around) Pencil a light line from the edge to the fold. (you'll have a sightly more than 1/2 of a circle)
(yes my kids got ahold of my template..Ugh!)

Using Scallop scissors carefuly follow your pencil line & cut. if you don't have scallop scissors you can use a template and hand cut or use a premade scallop circle card.

Ink your stamp in Brown Ink

Stamp your image just slightly off centerd to the right and top of a 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 teal square.

Ink the edges of your square.

Cut a strip 1" out of stripe pattern paper (making sure your stripe runs vertically). At about 3 3/4" tear strip, leaving a rough, white core edge.

Ink Strip Edges with Brown Ink

Punch Photo Corner out of Polka-dot Pattern Paper (make sure to line up the dots before punching to get a straight pattern)

Ink Edges of scalloped Card

Adhere Stamped block slightly off centerd underneath strip & add photo corner to bottom left

On a 1/2" strip hand write "tweet" using white gel pen,leaving extra space between each letter

Cut each letter out into blocks. Making them different height & widths

Hand draw a heart on the backside of your red Cardstock...Yes I said HAND DRAW...you can do it!
Cut out & ink edges with Brown
*tip!* Dont use a whole new sheet! Find a scrap!

Adhere title blocks and heart to edge of striped paper strip

You'll need about 13" of ribbon. lace ribbon through the inside fold of the card

Tie a knot at the front of the card about 3/4 of the way up, and add a pink paper flower underneath knot. Trim tales evenly.

And lastly-make sure to sign the back of your card!

And there you have it! A darling card that can be used for just about any occasion. Of course with Valentines just around the corner it would be a great card for any Tweet Heart in your life.
Other ideas for different titles are "so tweet", & "Happy Bird-Day"
