Embellished Heart Magnets

Hello friends~  I'm guest designing today at the Crop Stop Blog with a little shabby chic project.
I have a group of crafty friends that like vintage projects so I made these magnets to give as little gifts to them.
Here's a snapshot of products I used to make them. 
I started by cutting the Neenah 100 lb Kraft cardstock using Elizabeth Craft Designs Scalloped Hearts,   Stitched Hearts out of Cougar 80 lb. Natural Cardstock and butterflies out of 80 lb Natural cardstock and book pages.  I inked the edges of all the pieces using Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and  stamped a music background on the stitched hearts using a Hero Arts Music Background stamp.  I then layered the music print hearts to the front of the scalloped hearts and layered the butterflies using Scor-Tape.

To add stability to my project, I cut the scalloped hearts again out of Kraft / White Chipboard from Cropstop and adhered them to the back of the kraft hearts using Glossy Accents.
I chose some simple sentiments and stamped them onto Cougar 80 lb Natural cardstock and cut them using Elizabeth Craft Designs Banners Die.  

I adhered these wonderful flowers and banners to the hearts using Zots 3-D Singles glue dots.  You could stop here and use the hearts as embellishments for different projects like this simple card

Or you could add a magnet to the back of the hearts for a pretty presentation for refrigerator art as seen in the photo below.  

These would make great little gifts for anyone by changing up the style to suit your needs.
I hope you enjoyed today's project!

I'll be adding this project to the following challenges:
The Sisterhood of Crafters ~ Anything Goes
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit
