I used layered the cool Framed Florets Dies for this fun look of these Recessed Hearts Frame Cards. The same basic design is used again to create both an all-occasion and holiday-themed card. Get out your Stampin' Blends for fun coloring, too!
Background Basics—I started by adhering a 1-1/2" x 5-1/2" piece of Polished Pink onto a Basic Gray card base. I also die-cut a hearts frame layer by nesting the hearts frame die and the lined frame die on a 4" x 4-3/4" piece of the Fitting Florets DSP and running it through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. TIP:If you have lots of little heart pieces stuck onto your cutting pad, use the edge of either another cutting pad or a piece of sturdy chipboard to scrape them off easily. Also, if those little hearts are stuck in the die, the Die Brush works well for getting them out quickly.
Recessed Floral—I stamped the Framed Florets leaves in "stamped-off" Blushing Bride ink all over a 3-3/4" x 4-1/2" piece of Basic White. Next I positioned that stamped piece without adhesive behind the framed hearts layer and stamped a Framed Florets sentiment in Basic Gray ink. Then, I popped up the DSP over the stamped layer with Dimensionals and mounted the whole thing onto the card front.
Fitting Flowers—I stamped the Framed Florets floral image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Basic White cardstock. After it had dried thoroughly (to prevent ink bleeding), I die-cut the image with the Framed Florets Dies and colored it with Stampin' Blends Markers. There isn't a Blushing Bride Blends Marker, but I thought that Flirty Flamingo was a close second for the flowers. I also colored a couple flowers with Polished Pink to pick up the color of the background. The leaves are colored in Light Soft Succulent and Dark Smoky Slate. It's also popped up with Dimensionals.
Festive Finish—I colored a few Iridescent Pearls with the Dark Polished Pink Stampin' Blends Markers and added them around the sentiment. Love how this one turned out!
Supplies for this card will be in the 5-Card LIVE Class Kit!
Two Cool—This second, holiday-themed card begins with a Real Red strip mounted to a Cherry Cobbler card base. I die-cut the hearts frame from the backside of the same DSP.
Holiday Oval—This time, I stamped the leaves in "stamped off" Soft Succulent, then added a sentiment in Evening Evergreen.
Festive Flowers—These flowers are colored in Real Red and Cherry Cobbler with Daffodil Delight for the centers. Leaves are in Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen.
Festive Finish—I added the sparkly Red Rhinestones for a classic holiday finish.
You'll get supplies for both cards in the 10-Card LIVE Class Kit!
