For my focal point, I cut several hearts out of green and gold glitter card stock with the hearts from the Slimline Rose Spinner add-on die.
I cut an additional three green solid hearts out of card stock that I had covered with Stick It adhesive sheets behind. I popped out the inner petals from the green rose hearts and glued the outlined hearts to solid green hearts. Then, I took all of the gold glitter rose pieces and inlaid them into the green outlined hearts.
I took the A7 Lace Heart Cover die and cut out all of the pieces from white card stock. I set aside most of the pieces except for the inner lace rectangle. I used that piece as a stencil to add some subtle detail with my Pine Needles Distress Oxide ink to a 5 x7 card base. I also went around the edges with a blender brush with the same ink.
I cut the heart cover plate from gold foil card stock. This time, I only kept the outer frame. I popped out the tiny gold hearts (saving for a future project) and added strips of green cardstock behind the frame. Behind the frame, I added some foam tape and adhered it to the card base.
I decided the white was still too bright, so I added Pine Needles ink splatters. Next, I adhered the three green and gold hearts in a shamrock shape. I used the rose die from the Slimline Rose Spinner add-on to cut out the green stem and leaves. For the final touch, I added several metallic gold pearls.
Inside the heart openings, I white heat embossed a sentiment and flower from the "Popping Poppies" 6x6 stamp set.
It's amazing how much versatility you can get out of the A7 Lace Heart Cover die. You can definitely use it beyond Valentine's Day. It also works for a variety of card sizes, not just 5"x7"! I look forward to seeing what else I can create with this fantastic die!
