Scalloped Heart of Hearts Polka Dot Card

I had the idea in my head to somehow punch a hole in the Scalloped Heart of Hearts die cut and have ribbon pulled through into a bow or knot. I couldn’t quite get it to work how I envisioned, but this turned out cute anyway.

The base is Melon Mambo card stock, layered with a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Whisper White that I ran through the Big Shot with the Swiss Dots Embossing folder. You could easily use the new Perfect Polka Dots Embossing folder, but I don’t have that one (yet). After embossing the White, I adhered a piece of Soft Suede Polka Dot Ribbon around the front and wrapped the ends around the back. Then, I attached the White to the card base with SNAIL Adhesive.

The heart was made using the Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit with Melon Mambo card stock. The Kraft heart behind it is the heart “leftover” from the Movers & Shapers Die with the Magnetic Heart insert. I layered the two hearts together, then punched a hole in the center with the Cropadile (larger hole setting). I cut a piece of Soft Suede Polka Dot Ribbon (about 8″ long) and slipped both ends through the hole, pulling them both until there was about 1/2″ of folded ribbon left in the back. Next, I tied a bow and trimmed the ends. To keep the ribbon flat behind the heart, I used a Mini Glue Dot to stick the ribbon to the back of the Melon Mambo heart. Then, I used Stampin Dimensionals to adhere the heart to the card front.

As for the sentiment, I stamped “love you much” from Well Scripted in Melon Mambo ink on Whisper White. I punched it out with the Large Oval Punch and then layered it onto a Soft Suede Scallop Oval Punch out. I added white dots with my White Gel Pen and then attached it to the card base with Stampin Dimensionals.
