Challenge 267 Theme
'Anything Goes with DIES'
For my DT creation this week and our theme of AG with DIES I used one of the images from Holiday Bundle Valentine 1 by BBKakes 'Heart'. With this being a dies challenge I decided to break the heart image apart, I printed 3 copies of the heart and cut out the sections needed which were then stuck on white card, gold mirror card and silver mirror card. I did not want to use the text in the centre of the image but with breaking the image apart and using the sections as templates to cut around this was not an issue. I embossed the white heart section and then used a Love sentiment die from the Sue Wilson - Shadow Box Collection - Stacked Love (CED9305) and the letter U from Diamond Press Whimsical Alphabet for my text and added some gold Stickles to the arrow shaft. Next I gold stamped very roughly around the edges of my card base, die cut 2 squares and mounted these on Gold Mirror card and embossed with a heart folder. Next I die cut 2 hearts from Cherry Lyn Heart to Heart Doily and finally six heart buttons from Trimcraft Buttons. I finished off the buttons with white raffia.
Saying as I had a spare heart from the two big heart die cuts (the bit left over in the centre) I decided to use it for the inside of the card along with the heart border die by Tattered Lace - Adoringly Ornate Edge. To finish off I hand cut some Gold Mirror Carr and placed behind sections of the border die and used gold stamping in to roughly colour the heart left over piece, lastly I used a gold pen to colour the centre heart.
