Cardz 4 Galz. This is my DT card, which I created using die cutting and embossing. I started by die cutting the hearts from red pearlescent paper, then embossed the outside frame of the big heart and the whole of the smaller hearts with Wow! Embossing Powders. (I love them because they are much more interesting than ordinary embossing powders).
I created the white panel behind the hearts by dry embossing using an embossing folder and created some matting and layering using the embossed panel and some pink and red card. I added a strip of patterned paper (layered onto red card) across the bottom.
Next I took my die cut hearts and stuck them onto the card, starting with the largest heart. I reinserted the smaller hearts from the middle of the large heart without embossing them, to create some contrast, then layered the slightly smaller heart so it overlapped. I stuck some smaller hearts at the corners. I added the sentiment "I love us" which is from a Tim Holtz Ideology set, and which I think it perfect for a Valentine's card. Finally I added a ribbon bow and some small pearls at the opposite corners to the hearts.
I hope that you are able to join us for this week's Cardz 4 Galz challenge.
