Falling in Love & Tutorial for Extra Extra Large Heart Wreath Card

So this card proved very popular when I posted it earlier in the month (and on my display here too)... and I had my fabulous All Day Crafting Event last Saturday... and I suddenly remembered the ladies being gutted last time that they were not doing a wreath card...

So 2 worlds collided - the Falling in Love papers were out - and a re-make was on the cards.... well card actually... and here it is... 
So glad I got the So In Love and  Falling For You stamp sets - as I love this version of the card!! And there is a unique aspect of the leaf spray stamps in the So In Love set... there are two - one for each direction! Which means one could do the right hand side of the heart and the other the left... 

Pictorial on "how to make a wreath using a leaf spray stamp" here - and mat sizes and how to make the heart template used to draw round on the previous card version post here - so  I will just concentrate on how to produce an Extra Extra Large 7 1/2" (14cm) Square card for today... which is simples!

You will need... 2 pieces of A4 cardstock (or US standard)...

1. Cut one piece to 7 1/2" Square
2. Cut the other to 7 1/2" x 8 1/2"
3. Place this second cut piece LANDSCAPE (ie 8 1/2" length across the top!) on the trimmer at 7 1/2" and score
4. Valley Fold the score-line... so you have 7 1/2" Square on the front and a 1" ( x 7 1/2" high) "tab" at the back
5. Open up the front & apply glue to that tab and place the first piece onto the tab

6. (OPTIONAL) Apply co-ordinating Washi Tape to cover the join on the back of the card. This works well - as not only does it cover up the join - but it makes the card look more finished off/special too! 

I then used a 5 1/2" (14cm) Square stamping panel with a 5 3/4" (14.5cm) mat - on the outside and the inside too
