Christmas Hearts.....

Morning from a overcast Suffolk....
Something very different from me today....I added a few photos to show how I made these...Don't do what I did when I made the first one and forgot to put the ribbon on the back of the heart before the dark red card!....I now made a few for friends who saw the first one....so got better as I when on....

I started with some thin cardboard ....Cut out the heart with Spellbinders die....inked round the edge with red ink....put on red ribbon which I got from the todo shop in Spain...do that before putting card and paper on!!!  Cut plain red card from Papermill...hearts and put on back and front....then add cut heart paper ink round the papers back and front....The first one I used  patten paper in the middle cut with smaller heart die....the 2nd Heart I used it on all of them.....Papers the first one from the bit box....the 2nd one LOTV....I've darken the middle paper with distress ink....
Flower die Marianne.....leaf die Memory box....little bit of gold netting and my best buy berries from the pound shop...which was a wreath which I took apart...two wreaths for a pound....Some gems and sequins....
