The sun came out earlier this week and whilst tidying up my craft desk I came across the wire heart from Clarity Stamps club which I hadn't gotten around to testing yet. Valentine's Day has been and gone and its a bit early to be thinking about 2012.
But why not combine the two for a different type of card.
The card base came from the goody bag and was covered with one of the yellow papers from the bag. I created the second layer from some teal card left over from a challenge card and matted a rectangle from the SAME sheet of paper which I had darkened using Wild Honey distress inks.
From the Glitter Girls Majestic Board, I created a centre element using the same teal card and some more of the SAME sheet of paper. The card is edged with Stickles glitter glue and the central oval is edged with a fine border peel off.
The topper was then stuck onto a ribbon from the goody bag which was suspended on the matting layer to add a bit of dimension.
The heart shape is stamped onto a cut off from the SAME sheet of paper. I have embossed it with gold pearl Meltdust. I find the meltdust embossing powders really good for fine lines and not just for using on meltdust papers. I have coloured the sections of the heart using sakura gel and glitter pens.
I added some gold coloured gems and a sentiment to finish it off.
I am entering the card in the following challenges:
