Framed Heart

Hi guys

Today I'm sharing a card that I meant to share a few weeks ago!  I'm so disorganised, sorry!

Last month my boyfriend and I celebrated another year since our first date and every year we share anniversary cards...awwwww! lol

This is the card I made for him, super simple but I love how it turned out...

I started with a panel slightly smaller than the card base and die cut a square aperture.  I then die cut a further pierced square with the centre cut out to create a frame and adhered this over the panel to give the aperture some interest. I temporarily placed the panel over the card base and then stamped the heart through the aperture in blue pigment ink directly onto the card base, before embossing with clear powder.  This is clearer in the photo below...

To finish I stamped the label sentiment below the frame and popped the panel up on 3D foam.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Hero Arts - Love Flourish; Altenew - Label Love
  • Ink: Versa Color - Lagoon Blue; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Dies: MFT Die-namics - Pierced Squares
  • Embossing Powder - Wow! - Clear Gloss
