3 Times the Love

Happy Winter to you all!

Today I created 3 cards, all very similar in design.  One was quicker to make, one was a little more labor intensive and one had me questioning why I thought this was a good idea.

All cards were made using Simon Says Stamp Cupid’s Heart Die, Nested Banners, Hero Arts Sparkly Hearts, Pretty Pink Posh clear drops clear Nuvo Crystal Drops and My Favorite Things Little Letters dies.


In addition to the above named supplies the first card was made with card stock that was colored with Copics and a small piece of vellum.

I marked off the outline of the die on some scrap white cardstock and colored darkest to lightest with my Copics.  I used R20, R22, R24 and R27.  I used the same markers to color the sentiment in a gradient red design.  I used Recollections red card stock as a panel and attached our card design to the panel.  I attached the entire piece to a card base made of 110 lb Neenah card stock.


For the second card, I die cut the design out 3 times.  Twice out of SSS Pink Glimmery, Shimery cardstock and once out of SSS Rose Gold Glitter.  For some of the die cut pieces, I stacked twice then glitter paper was added.  Some were stacked twice in shimmery pink and some are a single layer.  It added different levels of dimension.  The Rose Gold Glitter paper was used for the card panel and the entire piece was attached to a white card base.


The final card gave me a headache. I used Minc Pink and Rose Gold foil.  I took a piece of card stock and put double sided adhesive on both sides.  I then die cut the cardstock.  I peeled off the top layer of the heart and rubbed the pink foil on it.  I then lifted the top layer on all of the little sprinkles and rubbed the rose gold foil on it.  This part worked great.  However, when I started lifting each piece out to attach to my card panel, the foil would flake off.

I built the card anyway and then took the foil to the card and rubbed .  It cleaned up the pieces really well, so I kept going.  I covered the letters in the same way.  I added double sided tape to my cardbase and rubbed rose gold foil on to the base.  I attached my card panel to my cardbase and the card was complete.

Thanks forstopping by, I hope you enjoyed today’s card share.
