Paint, Color Pour Magic Fiery Opal
Dies: Altenew Love Letters, Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Rectangle
Cardstock, white
Embellishments: baker’s twine, glitter, foil flakes
Thread, white
Small plastic cups
Sewing machine

1. Pour a little bit of each paint colour into a plastic cup. Alternate the colours a few times, then place card on top and flip it upside down. Slowly move the cup around, slightly lifting it as you pull. This will help to spread the paint and create an interesting pattern. Tilt the cardstock back and forth until the card is completely covered. Have a spare piece of card ready to catch any dripping paint.

2. Add a few specks of flakes, glitter or chunky glitter on top whilst the paint is still wet, then leave to fully dry. Die cut several hearts of various sizes from the panel.

3. Die cut a large stitched rectangle from white card and arrange the hearts into three rows, adhering them temporarily with glue. Machine stitch over them using white thread. Stamp a sentiment in black. Mount the panel onto a 10.5cm x 15cm top-folding white blank to finish.
