Things you will need:
White Cardstock 9”x6”
Paint- red, blue and yellow
Pencil, ruler and a pair of scissors
Pixel heart template
Thin Styrofoam, I’m using the Styrofoam from a food take away box
You will need cardboard too, not shown in the pic
First, fold the cardstock in half and crease. Keep aside
Step 1: Making Stamps:
Paste the pixel heart on to a piece of Styrofoam, cut off excess Styrofoam using scissors or x-acto knife.
Cut off 3 squares as shown in the picture. The rest of the heart should be cut in to squares.
And paste on to a cardboard leaving spaces in between, this will act as our stamp :D
Keep In mind that stamped image will be reverse.
I made a separate stamp for the 3 squares we cut at the beginning.
And I made balloons, since it’s all about hearts, you could make heart balloon stamps.
Step 2: Stamping:
Apply paint on to the Styrofoam, and stamp onto the cardstock. It need not be perfect. I loved the texture the Styrofoam gave to the final product.
And stamp the 3 squares right above where it should be, to give it the look of being in air, I tried to make it bit tilted and it worked fine.
Stamp on the balloons, mine has 3 balloons. You could make it more by making small balloon stamps.
Step 3: Final Touches:
Let it dry completely, and using 3D out liner or a sharpie draw the strings.
I made a matching envelop in red craft paper. I stamped more balloons on to the envelop and drew strings.
Easy huh? Share a picture if you it out.
Loads of love <3 <3
