A Heart of Gold!! =)

Pin It

YEAH!! LOVING the Challenge this week over on the
I'm Thankful For Challenge!!
So after looking through my IO Stamps and Dies I decided to make a Card using the
D8871 Rose Text Envelope Stamp
and the Heart Of Hearts Die 052-I.
                 Rose Text Envelope 

 Heart of Hearts

I thought about how my family and friends tell me that I have a Heart of Gold and that I wanted to show that my Heart of Gold is THANKFUL for being FULL of LOVE!!
So I decided how fun would it be to die cut the Heart out of a gold textured paper and then add some felt hearts from the same die cut to the top of some of the hearts!! Once I had it put together I thought it needed to be rising from something and the Rose Text Envelope stamp was perfect because I like to send cards and am so THANKFUL to have LOTS of Loved Ones (family and friends) to send them to!! So that is how my card came to be!! I think that we sometimes forget to celebrate things about ourselves that others tell us and this is my tribute to myself and acknowledging that I have a Heart Of Gold and it is so FULL with LOVE for those all around me!!
I wanted my envelope to have a 3-D look so I added some embossing lines to the seams and then I curled the edges of the envelope and bent the flap back so it would look like it was FULL with the Heart coming out of it!! I added some distress ink and pop dots to raise them from the card front!! I LOVE the way it came together and I think I could give this card for LOTS of OCCASIONS!! A Golden Anniversary, a milestone celebration for Retirement, a Wedding or for Mother's Day to my Mother or Mother-In-Law who both have Hearts of Gold as well!! So whatever I decided I know It will go to a deserving person!! Here is my finished card!! =)

  1. Great card!! I love your gold heart, and your idea to use the smaller hearts in the die to layer on top of the larger. Also love the dimension of the envelope. Thanks for sharing.
