A Heart that Loves

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Smooch Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Sweet Hearts Clear Stamp Set using Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. I stamped the frame from the same stamp set around the sentiment, again using Peacock Feathers. I cut out using Spellbinders Lace Hearts. I cut another Spellbinders Lace Hearts out of Teal Card.

I cut 2 corners out of Teal Card using the Spellbinders Lace Hearts Die Set and added a 5mm White Pearl.

I cut a strip of Coconut White Card and stamped the point of the heart frame to form a pattern.

I tied a bow using White Crochet Ribbon. I cut a Spellbinders Decorative Labels One out of Teal Card and added a Medium Heart Dazzler.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Teal Sparkle PVA around the edges.

Today is the last chance for bargains in my January Sale in my Amazon Store - details are in this post.

Thanks for stopping by.

  8. Good morning Julia today's card is gorgeous. I was wondering about buying that die set you have helped me to decide. Have a great day. Love Jackie

  9. Morning Julia, I loved watching you demo this card, especially watching you do the pattern on the small strip at the bottom, that was fascinating. I love the teal card and also the tiny die-cut atop the lace ribbon, it looks like a small buckle, the card is truly beautiful.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  12. Hi there.
    A beautiful card today, I watched you demo this last Sunday, sorry, had to record you, but either way I love how you think outside the square box by using part of the heart to make a border.
    That's why you are part of a brilliant design team and I JUST make cards.
    Must break the seal to my Peacock flower ink pad, rather than just have it in my ink box !!
    Have a good day everyone.

  21. Morning Julia, a beautiful card have the teal card but have never used it yet
    love the way you and Sue use it I know its her favourite but I always find it

  22. Hi Julia
    This card is gorgeous. I haven't watched the shows, that I recorded but simply love how you have used the heart to make a border. A simple but fantastic idea.

  23. Good morning Julia, I enjoyed your demo of this card last Sunday especially the border, what a clever idea, thank you. Best wishes Jackie D

  27. Such a clever way to achieve a chevron pattern, I would never have thought of doing that!! I loved the card on the day, and still do. Teal and white are one of my favourite combinations x

  28. Hello Julia, This is a stunning card, loved it when you demoed it and still do. Teal is a favourite of mine and this card shows it off to perfection. I love how you help us to think outside the box, the way you have used the stamp to produce the chevron is so effective.
    Take care.
    Hugs June xxx

  29. Hi Julia,
    I too love how you made the border! The card is lovely but I am in the minority, I know, but I don't particularly like teal! However I would copy in another colour!
    The whole thing looks so clean and I like the " buckle" effect on the bow.
    Have a lovely weekend.
    Love Myra
