Heart So Thankful - Couture Creations

I have this wicker heart that I have I have been itching to do something with! I decided to make a gift I could give to someone to thank them and that they could use as a decoration in their home.

I added some pretty pink polka dotted ribbon (and got rid of a more plain basic ribbon it came with) and loaded it up with Couture Creations dies and embossing folders.

The first thing I did was take the Victorian Square Nesting Die largest frame and cut out the gorgeous Paper Temptress Glimmer cardstock. I embossed it then with the Elegance Collection Loren embossing folder.

I then cut out several die cuts to embellish my heart. I added two of the small doilies from the Fantasia Ivy Set Doily Dies, the gorgeous Jasmine Dream die and that great Aladdin's Key, both from the Endless Dreams collection.

I attached my vintage image from my Paper Wings Productions Nesting Components May Mixed Media Kit with 12mm Foam Mounting Tape.

Next I placed the doily dies and Jasmine Dreams die onto the Victorian Rectangle die cut.

I used hot glue to attach the image and design onto the heart. I attached the key and stamped sentiment on with twine having punched a hole through the layers with my Couture Creations Handheld Essentials: Pokey Tool!! I added a butterfly die cut to finish it off.

A quick project but such a lovely gift...hmmm I might just keep this one for myself!
