Hello! Somehow, sometimes, even if I am pumped up to make cards, and even get the ideas, the end product is not as brilliant as it would be when I imagined it. And this is one of those times… But I am still going forward and posting about it 🙂 This card was primarily inspired by a pin that I found – I loved the gold embossed doily and thought of adding one to a card I create myself.. I started with making a frame and colored with dark green with Copic marker. I then die cut a heart from a piece of Vellum using a die from Lawn Fawn Hearts die set and colored it in Hero Arts Soft Cantaloupe Shadow Ink. And then, using the same die as a reference, I drew and cut out a bigger heart from scrap paper. I then used this heart to outline on another piece of vellum, I die cut a bigger heart and stamped the stripes using MFT Stripes stamp and the same ink. I then added the lines around the hearts using Uniball Signo gold gel pen (love this pen!) Keeping the vellum pieces aside, and coming back to the main frame, I stamped the sentiment, which came from Winnie & Walter Big Bold You in second generation ink and traced over it in the same gold pen. I also cut out two small pieces of the same dark green colored card stock for the ‘i’. I then die cut the doily using a die from Spellbinders’ Delicate Doily set and gold heat embossed it. For the card base, I stamped the horizontal lines using a stamp from WPlus9 Country Charm stamp set using Hero Arts Soft Pool Shadow ink. I then adhered the doily directly on the card base. I then adhered a small piece of fish tailed pink ribbon behind the frame, stapled down the hearts on the frame and foam mounted it on the card base, along with the ‘i’. I then added a few pearls as embellishment. This finished my card!
I am submitting this to Retro Sketches Challenge #149, Fusion Card Challenge:Two Hearts and As You See It Challenge #70 (I’ve used 3 colors (green, soft pool & soft cantaloupe) and popped up the frame).
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
