"My Heart Is Yours"

"My Heart Is Yours"
Red and White Easel Heart Card

I recently discovered Gift Box Easel Cards.

I wanted to try something completely different to what other people had made so I thought up the idea of making Heart Box Easel Card. 

I have studied various techniques and styles of boxes but ended up working for two days on my own design as the heart box styles I downloaded off Google just did not suit my needs. I started off with my Cherry Lynn Hearts Dies utilizing various sizes ensuring I had a top and bottom heart, I then cut a strip and scored along the strip and cut out "V" sections to curve around the lower part of the heart. Once I had the bottom heart attached with the heart box wall I then went around the edge with the glue gun of the top heart and glued it to the box. 

I then attached Ribbon and printed paper with double sided adhesive around the box heart then rolled a heart cut shape over the box to give it extra lacy effect. I then stacked up my heart boxes and completed my Heart Box Easel Card.
The Easel itself is actually separate to the platform, this being to stabilize it with all of the weight of my heart box and Digital etc. I have layered extra Cardstock on the walls of the Easel to give it strength and support. The platform I have cut out a separate piece of cardstock and then attached the Easel with double sided adhesive to the platform then decorated my Easel.
