Embellish-It FC74 - Pierce It People

The challenge for Embellish-It Scrapbooking (FC74) is called Pierce It People. We want to see cards with piercing. So, I created this card, with some piercing...

Stamps: Chloe's First Kiss (Sarah Kay), Polka Dot Punches (SU!)
Paper: Love Potion and Postcards (Pink Paisley), DCWV Stack 6 (blue paper)
Ink: Staz-On, Distress Ink
Embellishments: Heart Punch, Piercing Tool, Hodgepodge Hardware, button, Chocolate Chip ribbon

This is the card closed.

I water colored the image with distress inks and sponged the background to add dimension and color.

I saw a card made similar to this on Line's blog. She has a link to a YouTube video. I think it was in Italian, but if you watch, you get the gist of it. This is modified from the original, but is really fun to play with. When you pull the hardware with the little piece of ribbon, it lifts up the image, similar to an easel card. I had a hard time getting my fold for the easel correct, so I ended up with two folds. I do like the way it turned out regardless of my learning curve.

This heart is from Polka Dot Punches by Stampin' Up! The heart has little dots in the center. I used those as a guide and pierced the inside of the heart. The image corresponds with a heart punch. I added some Stickles to give it some bling and dimension.

Just a reminder that Embellish-It Scrapbooking is having a great deal on American Crafts ribbon. For details, you can go to my Wednesday post.

I hope you will consider playing along with the Friday Challenge at Embellish-It Scrapbooking. I look forward to seeing what you create.

Have a great weekend.
