Love Confetti Garland

Here it is still a blizzard and I am still making cards.....Valentine ones....which I really don't need anymore of.....oh well.....crafting is good for the soul!

This card will be entered into the  Papertrey Ink Challenge, Confetti Garland and at the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge, Have A Heart.

I am totally hooked on making these little confetti garlands, so FUN!!!  Yes, I am easily amused apparently!  lol

 
Using a small heart punch I took several different Designer Papers and punched out 32 hearts.  I also grabbed a bunch of the larger red sequins I had in my stash.  Using a needle and some purplish thread I strung them all together, well in 3 batches.  I also found these wonderful heart shaped brads to coordinate with my card.  The stamped image is a 2 step process using the love stamps from the Love & Marriage set by Papertrey Ink.  I then took red, pink and white craft paint and splattered them all over the front of my card using an old toothbrush.   A little strip of border paper on the inside to complete the card.
 
FUN I tell you!!! 
 
Thanks so much for stopping by, I appreciate you doing so!
 
Enjoy~~

  1. Girl, you not only made a second card, you put 3 garlands of confetti on it!!!! So original and creative. Who would have thought someone who is snowed in could make such a warm and lovely card. I mean that in the nicest way! Love your splatters and the heart brads are too sweet. Sent it to Mom!

  4. Love your card! The confetti garland is perfect! I got some crafting done yesterday during the storm as well. Now today will be spent digging out. I'd much rather be warm and happy in my craft room.

  6. Another cute garland card. Great array of pattern papers used. And, you have something fun to do while the weather is in the dumps. If you don't need this Valentine for this year, it might come in handy another year.
