Lovely Damask Heart

Here's an easy card that should have taken about 15 minutes that actually took hours.  (Has that ever happened to you - you have an idea in your head, but making it happen doesn't always come easily.) The actual color is warmer and the glittery heart doesn't show up as well as in person - hopefully you can run with the idea.  The G1855 Damask Heart is such a timeless stamp.  I was picturing this being used for a wedding or anniversary card - if you use red glitter then it's a valentine.  The Soiree Cream note card has a beautiful texture to it that isn't visible in the picture - it has a very rich look in person. 

Here are the details:  Stamp Damask Heart with VersaMark on a Soiree Cream note card.  Sprinkle with Sticky Embossing powder and heat until just melted (if you overheat the powder the glitter will not stick).  Sprinkle with Latte Glitter Ritz glitter and rub in glitter with your finger.  Brush off excess glitter with a paint brush (or blush brush).  Next take a lint roller to remove any persistent glitter. 

Stamp B1423 Love and Hearts with Timber Brown StazOn ink on a piece of shrink plastic and punch with an oval punch.  (I used an EKSuccess 1-1/4 x 2 inch oval punch.)  Leave room to the left of the stamped "Love" to punch your hole (Iused the largest hole on the Cropadile.)  Shrink your oval and then add metallic rub on wax to add color - avoid the word love so that it remains visible.  Add a jump ring through the hole of the charm and tie with metallic cord.  Attach to card front with small glue dots. 

Let me know if you have any other ideas for this card or technique - I'd love to hear them. 

Enjoy your weekend!



Wow! This heart is soooooo elegant! Just love this card. And... yes, I've had the same experience (regularly :-( ) making a fifteen minute card that really took three hours and fifteen minutes!!

What a sweet card, Debbie! You are awesome:)
