Magenta Heart Card

by Sharon Jeffs

Magenta Heart Card


  • Paper and Cardstock
  • Stamps
    • Magenta Cling Stamp, Flourishing Heart and Butterfly     ( MAG-RS-40345-N   $9.29)
  • Inks and Embossing Powders
  • Embellishments
  • Tools
    • Copic Ciao Markers     ( Assorted   $3.95 ea) ,I used BV00; E57; R37; V15; YG63; 0; Y06 and YR20
    • EK Success Circle Punch     ( PSP-02   $4.59)
  • Adhesives


  • Cut a strip that measures 12 inches by 6 inches from the Bazzill bling and fold in half to form the card base.

  • Cut out two strips from the websters paper that each measure 5 ¾ inchs by 2 ½ inches.
    Adhere the striped side over the patterned side and tear off excess to reveal a small strip along the right side.
    Adhere to left side of card base.

  • From the patterned paper, cut out the shield design and adhere to the centre left of the striped paper.

  • Adhere one of the Prima centers to the small panel at the top of the shield design.

  • Stamp out the Heart image twice and heat set to make the images ready to colour.

  • Colour in the butterfly only on the first image.
    I used R37 and Y06 to colour mine then added E57 to the butterfly’s body.

  • Cut out the butterfly and put aside briefly.

  • Colour in the background elements of the second stamped image, leaving the butterfly bare.
    I used BV00 and V15 to colour the flower; Y06 and YG63 to colour the stems and leaves then YR20 and 0 to ink the edges of the heart.

  • Cut out the heart design.

  • Adhere the coloured butterfly over the uncoloured one used 3D foam dots under the wings and adhesive on the body.

  • Punch out circles from the centre coloured area of the patterned paper.
    Adhere these around the edges of the heart so that they poke out to give a scalloped edge.

  • Adhere the heart to the front of the card using 3D foam tape to lift it up.
    Place the heart centrally over the striped pattern paper edge.

  • Flex the Prima stem lightly until it is moulded to fit around the base of the heart and along the right side without hiding the butterfly.
    You may find you need to move some of the leaves slightly.

  • Add a coating of the Distress Stickles to the surface of the butterfly and brush on a small amount of the Smooch to the flower centres.
