Together is Our Favorite Place to Be | DT

Hello All!
I hope you've had a lovely week!
Today I'm bringin' you another card made with the Hello Lovely collection, found in the newest Seasonal Expressions 1 catalog.

I started this one out with a White Daisy card base and covered it with the sea glass floral pattern paper from the Hello Lovely collection. I find that I don't use the Desert Sand cardstock all that often, but this card begged for it to be used lol, so I had to go and search for it. Once I finally found it, I cut it down so that it left a border around all four edges.
Next up is the striped vellum from the Uptown Fundamentals paper pack. I trimmed this piece just barely smaller than the desert sand piece. This is adhered once the title cluster is placed down so I knew where to hide the adhesive.

The first place I started with my title cluster was the 'Together is Our Favorite Place to Be' die cut. It's found in the All Together compliments, from our current Annual Inspirations catalog. The ornate, sea glass, rectangle is a sticker from the Hello Lovely Compliments pack. I love how I can mix and match all the stickers, vellum and die cut pieces from the different collections! I'm pretty sure I've just developed an obsessionšŸ˜‚

Once I adhered the sea glass sticker, using 3D Foam Adhesive, I was able to see where to place the adhesive to stick down the vellum. I then, added the die cut with my title on top, leaving a little bit of the seaglass color on either side.

Next, come the hearts! I used my Cameo to cut these little guys out of the same floral paper that I used for the base. I also cut two additional sets of hearts from just a plain vellum from my stash. Putting the floral patterned heart as the base, I stacked 2 layers of the vellum hrearts on top. Using my Close to My Heart ruler and a needle, I poked holes right down the center of each stack of hearts. I wanted to bring in just a touch more of white, so I stitched the hearts together by using just two strands from a length of white embroidery floss. Once the layered hearts are stitched, I adhere the remainder of the string behind them and used Mini Glue Dots to easily stick them down. *Tip- If you have the pieces to your card laid out how you'd like them, take a quick pic with your cellphone. It'll work as a guide to adhere the pieces back where you prefered them. : )
Most of the card is done by this step, but it needed a little shimmer and shine lol, so in comes the gold chevron stickers, which are from the Hello Lovely compliments pack, and the Grey Enamel and Gold Glitter Gems to finish it off. Somehow, I managed not putting any Bitty Sparkles on there! lol
