Heart Tree

Hi Bloggers.

This is one the cards I made for the Pick of the Day last month and it got a brief showing on the shows last Monday.

For the background, I spritzed some Milk Card with Cosmic Shimmer Tarnished Gold Vintage Mister. I dried it with my heat tool and then inked through the Acorn Leaves Mask with Oregano Adirondack Dye Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I cut a Spellbinders Marvelous Square out of Black Card. I stamped the tree from the Creative Expressions Trees of Imagination Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using the backing die from the Spellbinders Triumphant Blossom Cut, Fold & Tuck die set and inked through the die with Oregano.

I tied a bow using 3 lengths of Black American Seam Binding. I threaded a key from the Assorted Key Charms Pack onto 2 lengths of Black Baker's Twine from the Primary Set and tied another bow.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 8mm Black Pearls in 3 of the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Black Pearl around the edges.

Sue Wilson is on Create & Craft today 12noon for 2 hours and 5pm. She's sure to have some fab demos to show.

Thanks for stopping by.

  5. Morning Julia,

  6. Morning Julia, It has taken me 30 minutes to actually type this comment, my cat Lloyd decided to 'pad' my tummy in between my laptop, he settled down after he had pushed the laptop down my legs with his bum, so I have been tickling and stroking him with one hand and holding onto the laptop for dear life with the other ha ha, thankfully he has now retired to in front of the fire, so I will continue ......
    I absolutely love this card, the colours are fantastic, the embossing is divine and the background, as always, is superb.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
