I can’t stop working with the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper! By layering several pieces of cardstock beneath the DSP, it has the thickness, look and feel of real wood.

Wood Textures Slatted Heart


I began by die cutting a heart from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper, which I sawed into four pieces. I cut more hearts from cardstock (retired Tip Top Taupe), cut these the same size, and glued them together.

I made a vine from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper (Petals & More die set) to grow between the slats.  TIP: Not only does it sparkle, but it has flexibility that makes for easier weaving. I started with the left side of the heart, adhering with dimensionals. Next, the tip of the vine with a tiny bit of glue. The next slat has dimensionals which hold the vine in place. The vine has a bit of glue on the third slat, and the end below the heart.

Thick Whisper White is the card base to support the heart. A sheet of Powder Pink dots from Whole Lot of Lovely DSP is the resting place for my heart. For added interest, I bordered it with striped, Crumb Cake DSP.


The sentiment “From The Heart” fits perfectly in the Bunch of Banners die cut with its Wood Textures frame. It is stamped in Chocolate Chip from the stamp set of the same name, From the Heart.

There was just enough room to add a little Enamel Shapes heart.
