Neat & Tangled: You Have a Heart of Gold

Heart of Gold

I love cards with texture and dimension. This card definitely has that.

An embossing folder was used to create the background behind the heart and it complements the faceted look of the heart image. The gold heat-embossed heart adds more texture to the heart image and the image is raised up from the background with double-sided foam tape. The sentiment is gold-embossed on a rectangle of black cardstock and is also raised using foam tape.

The prism background was a little warped after going through my Vagabond machine, so I mounted the card front onto card base using fun foam after I cut it down to 4” by 5.25”. I then mounted the card front onto a 4.25” by 5.5” piece of black cardstock before adhering it onto a 4.25” by 5.5” (A2-sized) card base.

I added a tiny glitter heart that I had punched out from red-glitter paper for a Valentine’s project just to add a little pop of bright color to the card. (Always save the extra unused embellishments from other projects! They come in handy.)

There is lots of dimension going on here! The effect is great and the card feels very sturdy to the touch.
Also, I love We R Memory Keeper’s Next Level embossing folders. The dimension you get from these folders is incredible!
