DT Project #3 by Claire - featuring Jilly Bean Soup

Hello Everyone

Claire here again today to share my final project with you all for this week featuring the JillyBean Soup: Heart Healthy Red Bean Soup Collection.

So here is another Valentine's Day card I created:

 I started by cutting some of the 'XOXO' paper and some of the 'Hearts' paper to size for my 5x7 card blank.  I pierced around the edges of both pieces and inked around the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink.  I then punched the doily border along the bottom edge of the 'XOXO' paper using a Xcut border punch.

 I then die cut the hearts from the 'hearts' paper, attached a tiny ribbon hook to each one and threaded them onto the string of mini pearls.  I added them to the card using foam pads and glossy accents to keep the pearl string in place.  I then added the cream ribbon around the card, tied in a bow and added two heart hat pins which came with the kit this month.

Lucy will be back on Monday to share her makes with you all and don't forget that you can win the stamps, ink and embossing powder we've all been playing with - all you need to do is leave a comment on the blog and one lucky person will be selected at random!

Thanks for joining me this week!
