I love this super simpe card I made today. It really only has a few elements, but the clean and simple concept sure is hard for me! This card measure 4 1/4" x 5 1/2", the black mat it 3 3/4" x 5" and the white mat is an 1/8" smaller all around. That's all the layers...
These little hearts were cut from Fabulous Finds (retired cart) at 3/4" in white. Then I attached them to the white layer with quick dry glue, stamped the sentiment and went to work. I used a paper piercer to poke the little heart trails and a few holes in between the two stamped sentiments. I also poked the holes for the little "x"s that I used to attach the black and white mat to the white card base.
Then I applied Glossy Accents to one heart at a time, then sprinkled fine glitter over each heart. I used the little packs of four colors that Michaels carried last Christmas. After the GA dried, I added a second layer to seal the glitter into the heart... making for a wonderful dimensional element.
I used just a little ATG glue to secure the black and white mat to the card base and hand stitched the "x"s. Some of them are a little rough looking, not perfect etc... but it's homemade... it won't be perfect every time.
I love this sentiement. It has this wonderful curve I tried to mimic with the hearts. I have no idea who made the stamp, I found it with out packaging in Joann's as-is department... a 15 piece stamp set for 75 cents.
I kept the inside very simple too... just adding a second stamp from the set.
