Happy Valentine's Day and Sweet William Flower Tutorial

Hi friends.  Bonnie here from Make Time to Craft.  Today I have a pretty Valentine's Day heart shaped card for you featuring some fantastic dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.


The Heart to Heart Lacy Doily is one of my favorites!!  Lots of different sizes included with this set and the design is fantastic.  I cut my card base with the largest solid heart die.  Remember to position the top fold so it just sits a bit below the cut lines on each side to maintain a top fold for the card.  I also trimmed the bottom flat a bit so the card would stand for photos. 


After adding some different colors and sizes of the lacy heart doily along with the sentiment, I embellished with several Sweet William flowers in different sizes.  Love these flowers!  The beautiful double-loop, double-layer bow was made with hot pink delicate stitched satin from Really Reasonable Ribbon on my Bow-it-All V2.0 Tool.


For all the details on how I created my Sweet William flowers for this card, please view my video below.
