I was really in the mood to create a vintage, eclectic card and when I saw the photo prompt, I was thrilled! So here's my take on those cute little hearts:
Gee whizzies, there is so much going on here...I started with a Sahara Sand gingham mat, which I ran through a Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder, then distressed the edges.
I printed out a digital bingo card in Rococo Rose; you can barely see it, but I took a vellum doily and colored it with Blushing Bride ink and Frost White Shimmer paint and adhered it to the mat. Then I added some Blushing Bride ribbon and a few punched and diecut hearts:
The main heart was created with Sahara Sand cardstock, stamped with a polka dot patterns from Timeless Textures, and I already had a little snippet of Whisper White cardstock that had been embossed with the Ornate Garden embossing folder. I used Blushing Bride, Rococo Rose and Sahara Sand inks to color the raised florals with an Aquapainter. Instead of lace, I used some velveteen ribbon, then added some Linen Thread and a couple more hearts in Blushing Bride and Rococo Rose. I made a button and banner from some rose-colored glimmer paper, then stamped and fussy-cut the word "love" from Lovely You. My final embellishment was a little pearl I colored with a Blend. I shabbied up a lot of the edges with a sponge dauber to give it a more vintage look! I left the inside plain, and I'll add a sentiment when I figure out how I'm going to use it!
I chose my color palette from the Global Design Project, which worked beautifully with our inspiration photo:
