True Love Part 3

January 21st, 2011

Hi Everyone

And finally the last card for the Valentines Day project using the pretty Love heart kit from MeiFlower. The gorgeous matt silver embossed card is from the Payper Box. I have used the card for Christams cards as well, it is really versatile.

The clear irridescent sequin flowers, clear gems and red organza ribbon are all part of the love heart kit.

The basecard is a 6 x 6″ white square card.

Gorgeous red, silver and black themed Valentines Day card

I have matted and layered matt black card and silver irridescent mirror card, rounded the corners with a corner punch. This gives a nice sophisticated look for the Valentines day card. I have tied red organza ribbon along the fold side to go with the red heart to make the card look more lovey dovey.

To stick the sequin flowers onto the heart. I put some solvent free UHU glue onto a scrap piece of paper and dipped the flower sequins into the glue slightly, this helps reduce excess glue coming out around the sequin flower.  Stick them quite close together. I have used the clear gems from the kit to stick on top of some the seuin flowers randomly, again using the same technique with the glue on a scrap piece of paper.

Once the sequin flowers and gems have dried, stick the heart on to the silver irridescent mirror card. To finish off the card design, I have stuck a few of the clear irridescent flowers onto the silver irridescent mirror card but more sparsley spaced out.

    Beautiful card Mei, the red, black and silver colour scheme looks stunning and I like the way you have added gems to some of the flowers. Michelle x
