For my Valentine's class, I designed cards to "die" for. All about die cuts and embossing, that is. Here are the cards from the class...
The first card is a gate fold using the heart set from DeNami Designs stamped in Burnt Umber ink. I used the 1" and 1 1/2" punches to make the heart discs. The center frame is cut using the Spellbinders Classic Scallop edge die set. Love them! I embossed the cream card pieces using a new Cheerylynn embossing plate. I have to say I am a big fan of the Cheerylynn dies!!!
First I die cut the heart 2 times out of black and 1 time out of blue. Then I embossed the blue pieces using an embossing folder. Working on the backside of the pieces, I pieced them together (taking out the blue heart and replacing it with the black and putting the blue heart in the center.) I then took a large piece of double stick tape and carefully taped the pieces in place (from the back). I turned it over and added glitter to the front openings. Peeled off the protective layer from the back of the tape and stuck on a piece of vellum. I colored the back of the vellum with die markers to add color to the heart. I added a black ribbon to the bottom. Then I attached the piece to a black card. Last, I scored the other black heart die cut in the center and added adhesive just in the center and attached it to the front.
I hope you enjoy the Valentine's class cards and ideas!
