I definitely wanted to put a little surprise in the card, and what better way than using the Zipper Panel die from Ellen Hutson. So what to put in? ...
Why, some love of course!
So watercoloured some cardstock and die cut using my Silhouette.
Sewed them together with some patterned paper to make hanging garlands.
Wrapped them around some cardstock so that they wouldn't get all knotted in the post.
Then popped them under the panel, which was inspired by this painted rock! I drew a black heart from the negative of my die cut heart (for my next heart card) and doodled and painted. The sentiment is from Club Scrap and I just love it!
Of course, my "love bundle" inside was quite thick, so one layer of foam would not have been enough. So I die cut the 4 colours that went with the card to make a deep pocket.
I will also enter this into The Daily Marker's 30 Day Colouring Challenge.
