Paperclip Heart

 Paperclip heart
The heart embellishment on this card is a 7 Gypsies paperclip and I have to admit, getting it to stick down (using pva glue) was a bit tricky.

I used a set of wavy edged square punches (a gift from my friend Lisa - Craftfairy)  for the centre mat, which is mat and layered and then backed with a couple of foam pads for added dimension.
I added the larger plain backing square to spread the design and fill up the space subtly, drawing the eye into the centre of the card.

I have some other heart shaped paperclips that would have looked equally as good …. well perhaps not the turqouise one!

What’s On My Desk Wednesday

It’s frightening how fast Wednesdays come around.
Desk Feb 3
I have been cutting card blanks (5 x 5 in) a job I hate doing but if I do a job lot now it means I can just sit at my desk and crack on, instead of mucking around with scorers and guillotines. I am running short of white linen card so an order to The Paper Mill Shop is imminent.
Desk 2
My desk often looks tidy because on the other side of the room is a big shelf heaving with stuff that I need to put away, or is there because I am “thinking about what to do with it”  Agh.
