3-D Wednesday with My Creative Time!!

Hello, hello!! Welcome back my crafty friends!  Today, I have a non-card project to share!  This was so much fun to make and the best part is, all your cardmaking supplies work for this!!

I made a very dimensional piece that was placed inside a picture frame. I don't think this would be classified as a shadow box as the die cut images are outside the frame. Please let me know if I'm wrong!!

I had this inexpensive picture frame from Ikea in my stash. Now, I want a whole bunch more because I want to make more of these!!!  I started by die cutting the smallest heart from the new Heart Doily Dies out of a watercolour paper pack from Lawn Fawn.  I cut a piece of white cardstock down to 5X7 to fit the frame and what served as the base of the design.  I originally thought that I would just place the 6 hearts on the panel but after fumbling around with the placement, I noticed that I could fit a fairly substantial sentiment on there!!  So of course, out come the Lowercase Fun Dies!!

I used a light grey cardstock for the letters and added a touch of shading with a W1 Copic marker.  To make sure the letters were straight, I did mark a line with a pencil.  I used liquid glue to adhere those down. Now, this is where I actually placed the panel inside the frame as I wanted to make sure I aligned the hearts nicely!!

Before adhering the hearts, I curled the edges slightly to give a nice, rounded look.  I used a strip of foam adhesive down the centre of each heart so they remained curled.  I decided to break up the solidness of a few of the hearts by adding a tiny outline butterfly die cut. These come from the Mini Butterfly Dies.

I thought it needed a bit of sparkle, so I added some clear sequins.

I hope you enjoyed todays non-card project and hope you will give it a try!!

Thank you so much for dropping by today!!  See you soon!
