Hello Honey Bee friends!! Do you send Valentine cards? Whether you do or not, my card that I’m sharing today could be a Valentine, birthday, or even an anniversary card! It all just depends on the message you add inside the card! I’ve featured some of my favorite sets from Honey Bee including the Spring Medley 3D embossing folder and the Lovely Layers: Heart Vine Honey Cuts!
First I die some peach colored cardstock with a Stacking Hearts die. Then I embossed the piece with the beautiful Spring Medley 3D embossing folder. Next I trimmed it to 4″ x 5-¼”. I used a blending brush to add coordinating ink just around the edges.
I glued a piece of acetate to the back to cover the heart opening. When it was dry, I added thick foam tape (if you don’t have thick foam tape, add a double layer) around the heart, being careful to leave no gaps between the ends of the foam tape. I also added foam tape around the edges of the embossed panel.
I sprinkled some pretty bling from my stash onto the acetate and then removed the foam tape backing. I added another piece of acetate to cover the opening. Then I removed the backing of the rest of the foam tape, added glue to it, and then adhered it to an A2 card base. (I sometimes add glue to foam tape for two reasons: you can be sure it is firmly adhered and it allows you to slightly move the panel for correct placement.) I set this aside to dry.
Next I die cut a Scallop Heart from 80# Neenah. Then I die cut a darker shade of peach cardstock with a Stacking Hearts die. I placed this heart into the Spring Medley 3D embossing folder and ran it through my die cutting machine. I used glue to adhere them together.
I used my Glimmer Hot Foil System and Blush Glimmer Foil to foil the sentiment from the Foil Script: Love Hot Foil Plates. I cut it out with the included coordinating die. NOTE: I just noticed this set is “retiring” and is now at a reduced price!
Before I die cut the outline of the Lovely Layers: Heart Vine, I added a piece of Tear Tape Sheet to the back of brushed gold cardstock. I die cut the outline and also the solid layer from peach cardstock. I used glue to adhere the layers together and also to adhere it to the card. After I glued the heart layers onto the card, I adhered the sentiment with narrow foam tape strips.
For a bit more shine, I added some gold pearls from the Metallic Mix Pearl Stickers set.
Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you’ve enjoyed my card today. Have a wonderful and crafty week!
