• Twine: about 4-5”


1. Using SNAIL adhere Designer Series Paper to the two panels on the front of the card so the pattern continues if the two edges were side by side.
2. Align pens/pencil image and sentiment on one block.  Do a sample stamp to make sure they’re aligned. Stamp onto Shimmery White with Memento ink.
3. Color in pen/pencil image with Stampin’ Blends including writing over the sentiment with the Smoky Slate Light marker. Die cut this piece using the 3-1/4” wide die from Stitched Nested Labels.

Affix to back of center piece with Mini Glue Dots and secure further with a strip of household tape. With Stampin’ Dimensionals (3 across center back of Crushed Curry piece) affix focal piece to band.
7. Using Mini Glue Dots, adhere Crushed Curry felt heart onto lower right of card front.
8. Slip band over the card from the top and align so dangling heart charm is just above felt heart.
