February IAR Challenge - Trust Your Heart Card

Hey, Crafty Friends!! I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's day and was showered with love. Though I firmly believe love should be shown and expressed every day and not just one day a year, which is why I created this gorgeous card for this month's  I Am Roses Challenge!


Are you new to the I Am Roses Challenges? Head on over to their blog (HERE) for more details on how to enter, amazing prizes you could win, and lots of inspiration from the IAR design team and previous winners!

Now, for my card, I used the following...

I Am Roses Supplies Used
Other Supplies Used
Big Shot (Sizzix)
Double Stitched Heart Dies (Pink and Main)
Coral Couture Stack (DCWV)
Double-sided Colored Cardstock (DCWV)
110 lb Cardstock- White, Kraft (Recollections)
Natural Hemp Twine
Self Adhesive Flower Jewels
Liquid Glue

I started with a 5"x7" card base made from 110 lb white cardstock, a 5"x7" piece of bright orangey-red cardstock, and a 4 3/4"x 6 3/4" Piece of teal patterned paper from the Coral Couture Stack. Then layered and attached them together using my Xyron Mega Runner.

 
Then I used my Sizzix Big Shot and Pink and Main'sDouble Stitched Heart Dies to cut a heart from Coral Red polka-dot paper from the Coral Couture Stack.

And then I die cut kraft cardstock using a leaf die from Diamond Press' Foliage Stamp & Die Kit.

I then attached the heart onto the card front using my Xyron Mega Runner. And used liquid glue to attach my leaves in a curve around the heart.


Here's where it really starts to come to life...

Next, I added I Am Roses Small Green Leaves and followed the same curve as the kraft leaves.

Then, I added all the smaller flowers.  First, the Mini Peach Round Roses...
then, the Small White Lillies & White Achillea Cottage Flowers.

Then added a single Medium White Lilly before filling up the gaps with three Medium Salmon Red May Roses.


I curled discarded stems for swirly vines and a randomly tucked them throughout my floral swag.
Then, I  made a multi-loop bow from hemp twine and tucked it neatly under a couple of leaves.

I added the TRUST YOUR HEART sentiment from Tim Holtz Quote Chips and surrounded the heart with self-adhesive flower jewels which I also sprinkled throughout.


And here is my finished card...



I hope you enjoyed my card for this month's IAR Challenge and it inspires you to join in on the fun!!
You could win some amazing prizes!
