I am excited to bring this card project to you all today! In keeping with using general crafting supplies for Valentine’s Day cards, I am combining several dies. In this project, I used Detailed Floral Thinlits with it’s large intricate lace work, Sweet & Sassy Framelits large heart die to cut away a portion of the lacework and Sunshine Wishes provided the sentiment. It all works together for one purpose. I came to this idea by needing a heart to feature on a clean and simple card design. Liking the tone on tone look, I went to what is in my supplies for a die that could fulfill this purpose. Let’s check it out 🙂
For the card base I started off with Thick Whisper White card stock. Once it is scored and folded, it measures 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ (standard US card base). I used a layer of Fabulous Foil Designer acetate that measures 2″ high by the width of the card and finished up with a strip of Gold Glimmer paper. I made a medallion to hold the lace die cuts by cutting a heart from plain white paper, a heart die cut of Kraft paper and a heart die cut of the white lace die cut. This unit has three layers in total which all work together to give it a look of dimension.
To compliment the large heart, I cut a small heart from the same glimmer paper and placed it to the right of the large heart. Sunshine Wishes has several choices of short word dies and I felt love would lend itself nicely to the look of the project. I made one cut from white paper and another from gold glimmer paper. These were glued together and offset a bit to show the dimension. Using these papers in a visual triangle helped to bring the overall look to the card. It’s a simple design that you can duplicate with no problem at all!
