With Love Steampunk heart meets traditional hearts square card

With Love Steampunk heart meets traditional hearts square card

Hi Craft Addicts!

Today's card is a mix of "Steampunk" and traditional and can be used for either Valentines Day or really any time you want to say you love someone....

With Love Steampunk heart meets traditional hearts square card

How I made this card:-

  • I first of all took a plain 7" white card (from Hunkydory) and cut about 4cm off the right hand side.
  • I then coloured the front of the card using the "Love is in the Air" mask (from the Love of Stamps range by Hunkydory) with a "Red" Generation INX ink pad (I used the XOXO, hearts and balloon heart).
  • Using the Tattered Lace "Love is in the Air Lattice" panel, I cut out the strip for the inside of the card in black card - I had made sure that it fitted before cutting the front part.
  • I also used some Tonic Studios "Hearts" in a couple of sizes/styles to cut out the larger of the hearts in pale Kraft (and embossed it using an A6 embossing folder from DoCrafts Xcut series) - I first of all embossed the middle part of it and then either side of it to complete the pattern.
  • The smaller of the two backgrounds hearts was cut out in "Cream" card and embossed too.
  • I also cut out the "Steampunk Heart" in "Silver" Mirri card using the Tattered Lace die and coloured it using "Blue, Green and Red" alcohol markers and let it dry.
  • I attached it to the centre of the background panel using foam pads to give it some dimension.
  • I also punched out the "Red/White" hearts using a Woodware punch and glued them to the "Lattice" panel using Cosmic Shimmer PVA glue.
  • I cut out the "With Love" sentiment (from the Love is in the Air collection from Tattered Lace" again in the "Silver" Mirri card, snipped into it so that it was 2 words and stuck it to the middle red heart.
  • Finally, I added some "Violet Galaxy" Nuvo crystal drops to the centre of the cogs to add some more colour.

And there you are - a simple but stylish card that has been made using a variety of dies and cardstock.
