Embellished Heart Die Week - Day 1

November 19, 2018

Hey there!  It's Caryn here today with a couple of cards I created using the fantastic Embellished Heart Die.  I love when I can get more bang for my buck so this die is a great investment as it can give you a multitude of looks.  The die cuts an embellished aperture from your material leaving the "positive" heart die cut.  Simple to create to totally different cards with no waste!

I started by die cutting a piece of self adhesive wood veneer paper.  This gave me the negative part with the aperture and detailed border and also a heart from the centre.  I used similar supplies for both cards so whipping them up didn't take very long at all.  

For the first card I started with an A2 card base and carefully centred the die cut wood veneer to the front.  From the card I created last week using the Three Hearts Die I had the white hearts left over so used a couple of them on these cards (tip - always keep your die cuts - you never know when they'll come in handy).  I lightly brushed some Orchid pigment ink around the smaller heart to let it pop off the card a little  - it's subtle but it adds a lot of texture.  To bring the elements together I bunched some gold thread and held it down with some adhesive and popped the inked heart die cut onto it with foam tape.  I created the sentiment using the new Simple Sentiments stamp set, heat embossed with white powder and then die cut using one of the co-ordinating dies.  I added a few tiny black gems to tie the black sentiment in.

For the second card I used the Embellished Heart die again and die cut it from a white panel off-centre.  I popped this onto a white A2 card using foam tape and then adhered the wood veneer heart into the space and trimmed off the overhanging edge.  I grabbed another of my leftover hearts from my last card, the same gold thread and another white embossed sentiment and finished off this time with some gold Stickles around the edge of the heart to accent the thread.
