  • Fireworks! Spritzes - Tangelo and Lilac Posies
  • Sheer Shimmer Spritz - Gold
  • Memento Luxe Pigment Inkpad - Wedding Dress


Spritz watercolor paper lightly with water, then with Tangelo, Lilac Posies and Gold.  Let it air-dry for about 10 minutes, then heat-set the inks with a dry iron on the cotton setting.  Cut the large Cherub Heart.  Spritz some extra paper and have it ready for other projects and quick tags.



Place the heart in the Vernay Heart die and dry-emboss it.  Use the embossing mats, plates and stacking sequence recommended by the manufacturer of your diecut machine.  I use the rubber embossing mat, light pink embossing plate and gray base plate with my Grand Calibur.  

Leave the diecut in the die and stencil  Wedding Dress onto the embossed areas.  Remove the die and heat-set the ink.


Cut "love" from  the All About the Love Set from gold mirror cardstock.  Cut a frame of textured white cardstock using the Shaker Rectangle Frame set.  I like how it creates a 'reverse-shadowbox' effect...what do you think?  

Attach everything to a White Notecard - use a foam dot for upper right section of the heart.  Attach iridescent pink sequins.  Coordinate the card with a matching Peony Envelope.
