Pink Lace Heart

Published by at 12 21 pm under Valentines,Wedding Cards

Here’s a card I did this morning for the Sketch Challenge at SCS – a really great and simple sketch — just my style — LOL!!! In all honesty, I DO love this card, and it was SO INCREDIBLY SIMPLE to make. I think this would make a gorgeous wedding card, done in either the bridal party colors or in all whites/ivory –oooohhh, I want to try!!! Again, this card is a true testimony to what I always say – if you USE pretty things, you don’t have to DO much — so, so true!!! Here it is:


OK, the white background panel is stamped repeatedly with one small stamp from Flourished Elements by Flourishes, then narrowly framed in black. The heart is embossed in pink and cut out, then mounted on pink paper and then cut out again to frame the heart in pink. That is my beloved Lace Heart by Flourishes. I added the band across the front to comply with the sketch, wrapped it with black organdy, attached a flower from the Pretties Kit right to the heart with the clear rhinestone brad, stuck in my pin (these are all items from the Pretties Kit by SU), attached it all to the card with Pop Dots and I was done!!! The middle layer of the flower is dyed (colored) with the pink marker — they color up so quickly and easily and are instantly dry (no wait time)– they just absorb the ink and instantly look great!!! I do want to try this in shades of whites/ivorys fora wedding card – I think it would be awesome!!

  • Stamps: Lace Heart and Flourished Elements by Flourishes
  • Paper: Pretty in Pink, Black, White
  • Ink: Pretty in Pink, Versa Mark
  • Accessories: Black Organdy, Pretties Kit by SU, Pop Dots, Pink EP (retired SU), Sponge

Thanks for stopping in!!! See you later!!! I still have lots to do this week!!!
