Heart Flourish Cards



I wanted to make some cards using my Heart Flourish die because I think it is just so pretty.  Here is what I came up with:


I wanted to do a red, white and black card and feature  Impression Obsession's Heart Flourish Die 126-U  so I started by cutting out a white background using Cherry Lynn's FRM 140 Fiona's Magic Window which is so intricately detailed and beautiful.  I positioned the Heart Flourish across the frame from corner to corner and layered on black cardstock.  I used Cheery Lynn's die B415 Cherish (set of two) which gives you 2 sizes of the word...I used the small one and put it in the upper left hand corner...which made the lower right corner kind of bare.  So I couldn't resist adding one of the cupids from the Impression Obsession die 125-M Cupids - I used the one with the loose arrow.  You can't tell, but I used mini mounting foam squares to lift the cupid and his arrow to make it look like the arrow was in the air. I embossed the red layer of cardstock with my eBosser Embossing Folder SPH03 Sophisticated which just added another elegant touch to this card. What I like about this embossing folder is that it is 8-1/2 x 11 so you can emboss a larger area. I added a black & white polka dot paper to the white cardstock card front for contrast.

I've had this card laid out for a couple days now without the flourish and decided to add it for a little flair.  I started out with Poppy Stamps Die 801 Wired Bird Cage.  I decided to use Memory Box Die 98187 Woodland Branch for the bird perch and weaved it thru the bars of the cage then cut off the excess.  The little bird is Poppy Stamps Die 929 Peaceful Bird.  This time I left the Heart cut-out in the middle of the Impression Obsession Die 126-U Heart Flourish and added a couple black adhesive pearls. I thought this looked nice on a taupe and white polka dotted paper layered on dark gray and then on a black card.  I finished it off by adding the small Hello from Cheery Lynn's die B346 Hello (set of 2).
