I was trying a techique over on Ikki's blog and made a mistake. Instead of trimming half the card and leaving the half heart exposed, I cut out the heart from the centre of the card instead. But, as we've all learnt in card making - there are no mistakes, just new designs!
I decided that I didn't necessarily want the heart just "bare" so I punched small holes through the card, used a large darning needle threaded with gold trim to sew the thread diagonally across the heart. I attached a second piece of card, also with the heart die cut from the card, on the inside of the cover o cover up the thread trimmings.
The card front is embossed with Swiss Dots and coloured by dragging a VersaColor Ash Rose inkpad over the dots. CS is Curious Metals Cream and card size is 14x14cm square.
This is another of the cards we did at my first card class held at the Scrapbook Factory Shop in April.
