Cuttlebug Challenges #32 Hearts/Butterflies


This book is my submission for Cuttlebug Challenges #32: Hearts and Butterflies. I obviously went with the hearts here. Made this cute little mini book for my son's teacher who is getting married this summer. The acrylic heart is difficult to see unless you click on photo for close-up.
Recipe:
  • red mini tag book by K&Company
  • cream and black cs
  • Martha Stewart Doily Lace edge punch
  • key charm by Lost and Found
  • 'yours' brad by Basic Grey
  • Fired Brick Distress inkpad
  • red chipboard heart and ghost acrylic heart both by Heidi Swapp
  • Cuttlebug Swiss Dot and D'Vine Swirls embossing folders
  • flourish rub-ons by Stampin Up!
  • antiqued silver eyelet (source unknown)
  • Crop-a-dile
  • red and black ribbon
  • scripted transparency by Basic Grey: Motifica papers
  • dictionary page with 'cherish' defined on it

I used the Cuttlebug embossing folders on both the chipboard and the acrylic heart (need to click on photo to see it in the close up). Made the tag out of black cs and edged with the Martha Stewart edge punch; mounted on cream tag and inked edges with sponge on Fired Brick Distress inkpad; cut strip out of dictionary and layer on black piece; cut tag out of the Basic Grey scripted transparency/acetate and layered on top of all; attached w/eyelet and added ribbon and charm; added sentiment brad to tiny tag that threads around button to close album; added flourishes for final touch. Hope you like it!
