Silhouette Tutorial: Bendy Card with hearts, by Allie Gower!

New This Week in the Silhouette Store!
I have 4 new designs that just arrived in the Silhouette store on Friday. 

Today, my creative team member, Allie Gower, is going to show you how to use the Heart Pennant Flags #54446 banner with the sloped bendy card design from the previous week.

Isn't Allie's card adorable!

To make this box, you will need these files: 
you might also like Bendy card box sloped #54226 a box that is a great size for presenting a bendy card in it's "bowed out" position.

Paper: 
Allie used my paper from my Rough & Tumble line for Carta Bella, and plain kraft card stock.

Equipment:
You will also need a Silhouette Cameo or Portrait machine to cut this box. 

These are the steps to creating Allie's card:
1. Cut shapes with your Silhouette Cameo or Portrait machine
2. Ink hearts with Memento Lady Bug Ink.
3. Create mats for card segments. Ink edges with Memento Desert Sand.
4. Apply ribbon to front mats, wrapping around the mats.
5. Apply mats, making sure not to cover the slits. 
**Tip - thread a piece of scrap paper through each slit to help align.**
6. To achieve a nice curve, roll flaps around something tube shaped. 
7. Stamp sentiment on scrap paper and punch using an Epiphany Heart shaped punch. (You could also enlarge the hearts that come in the Heart Pennant Flags #54446 set.)
**Tip - if your scrap paper is too small to hold while stamping, attach a strip of scrap paper.**
8. Add button tied with twine
9. Attach stamped hearts and other die cuts.

Here are some supplies to recreate Allie's look:
