Bride’s Wedding Day Heart

Following on from last weeks jewelled heart that I couldn’t let go of, this is the one of the replacements I made for either Iris or Bertie to give to bride.

The base is an MDF heart which I covered with layered, punched daisy flowers and leaves.

Putting together the four layers (three large and one small daisy punch) to make each fiddly flower made my gums itch by the end, I am not good with repetitive tasks!

A flat backed gem or tiny pearl rose was then added to the middle of each flower with the odd punched leaf interspersed between them. When thoroughly dry this was followed by a bit of fluffing up to separate the petals and add some extra texture.

The ends of the ribbon were hidden on the back using a piece of contrasting paper which I faux stitched round the edges of with a black fine liner pen to finish the whole project off.
It was a fiddly job, but someone had to do it. It does look incredibly pretty, and if the ribbon was removed the heart could then be framed in a shadow box as a lasting memory of the wedding.
