A Heart that Loves

Hi Bloggers.

I'm running a couple of workshops today at Creative Expressions HQ. Maybe I'll see some of you there?

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Tied Together Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Faded Jeans Distress Ink. I wrapped a piece of White Crochet Ribbon around the centre. I cut 4 corners out of Periwinkle Card using the Spellbinders Lace Hearts Die Set.

I stamped the sentiment and the frame from the Justrite Sweet Hearts Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Arctic Lake Lustre Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Heartfelt Creations Timeless Amour Die Set which gave me 2 die cuts - one with the sentiment and one a lovely decorative frame. I cut a Spellbinders Decorative Labels One out of Periwinkle Card and at the emboss stage added the Heart Confetti Mask.

I cut a key using the Spellbinders Lace Hearts Die Set and inked through the die with Faded Jeans.

I assembled the card as shown adding some White Pearls and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Cosmic Pearl around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.

  27. As I said yesterday hearts are not my thing - but I like the idea of what you have done with the hearts on this topper, I am now wondering if it will work with other shapes.
