First Posted Cards

I am pretty proud of todays card. I drove to my local craft store and I was looking for something that was just a little different.  I needed some paper that really popped.  Paper that I would have been ashamed to cover with any other paper, so I found it. It is a washi paper. I am sorry I am not sure of the brand name.

I placed that on top of a navy blue card stock. Then layered it with a light purple which I die cut with a large stitched rectangle from Lawn Fawn. The pattern paper is die cut using the small stitched die cut rectangle also from Lawn Fawn.

I adhered all of those to the card in layers.  The heart is a die cut by Tim Holtz. I die cut 12 white hearts out of some heavy card stock, and the 4 gold hearts our of gold foiled (mirrored) paper. I then glued three white hearts stacked on top of one another. Then added the gold heart on top.  I glued that down to the pattern paper.  Using that many die cuts brings some dimension to the heart.

Last I gold embossed the word love from the Word Salad Stamp set from Paper Smooches. I adhered the final card base to some Neenah 80 lbs card stock.

I hope you enjoy these cards and let me know what you think!
