Hanging Hearts

by Joanne Wardle

Hanging Hearts

The structure of this card came about by accident, when I messed up the white background that I had mounted the pink onto. I decided to cut down the card and was left with a square wondering what to do with it.


  • Paper and Cardstock
    • 4.5 inch square white card x2
    • Basic Grey Green at Heart, 6x6 pad, Dark pink     ( BG-6x6-GREEN   $5.99)
    • Basic Grey Sugar Rush, 6x6 pad, Dark pink     ( BG-6x6-RUSH   $5.99)
  • Stamps
    • Sassafrass lass Stitched Borders 2     ( SAS-CS-50011   $12.99)
    • Clear choice mini Royal Clear Stamp Mini I Love You     ( ROY-CS-105   $1.99)
  • Inks and Embossing Powders
  • Embellishments
    • 3/4“ organdy ribbon, Pink w/ black dots     ( CR-ORG-DOT-PKBK   $0.80/yard)
    • 1.5” sheer velvet dot, Pink/black     ( MA-QD-17   $0.79/yard)
  • Tools
  • Adhesives


  • On a 3 inch square of pale pink paper stamp 3 of the stitched borders from the top and stamp the hearts so that they appear to be hanging.

  • Distress edge of paper with scissor blade and then run edges along black ink pad.

  • Tie a knot in a piece of ribbon and glue to middle heart string.
    Using some waste ribbon, attach between the light pink layer and a 4.5 inch square dark pink layer.

  • Stamp cross stitch border and I love you on dark pink card.

  • Back with white card.
    Cut another piece of white card and a piece of pale pink paper the same size as the card front.
    Crease these ¾ inch from edge and glue to the front.
    Punch two holes and tie with wide spotty ribbon.
