template provided is to scale.
Cut a piece of the SANTORO®'s Willow burgundy floral paper to 13.5cm square and stick to the
bottom of the card.
Cut two 1.5cm x 5.4cm strips of
the distressed heart paper and stick to the folded frame. Cut a 1.5cm x 13.5cm to

Cut another piece of the SANTORO®'s
Willow burgundy floral paper to 9.3cm x 9.2cm and add to the
centre of the swinging square section with double sided tape. We have then
added the ‘Mechanic of my heart’ character topper to the centre of the swinging
To create the stopper for the top
section of the card, we have cut a black piece of card to 9cm x 3.7cm and stuck
it to the bottom of the card, 2.7cm from the edge using 3D foam squares. Layer it
with the distressed heart paper cut to 8.5cm x 3.4cm.
We have then stamped the ‘Always in my Heart’ sentiment onto the distressed striped paper and added to the
stopper with foam squares. To decorate the stopper, we have cut a medium and
small heart with the purple polka paper. Stick the medium heart to the left of
the stopper and add the smaller heart on top with a foam pad.
We have then die cut two heart
shaped locks, sticking one to the right side of the swinging frame and adding
the other to the bottom right of the easel stopper using foam squares. To
finish, die cut a medium and small heart and add to the left side of the
swinging frame, again using foam squares for further dimension.
