Good morning – here is another card with a romantic theme using the Harlequin Rose stamp set.
The heart was a bit of an experiment with friendly plastic. It is almost too good to be left on a card front. I think that I will adapt the project and create a piece of jewellery from it – it would be gorgeous as a pendant. I will share when I have had a chance to design and make it x.
- Harlequin Rose and Words of Love stamp sets
- A5 cream card blank, cream hammered card, blue card
- Alcohol marker and fine tipped pen (blue)
- PVA pearls (gold)
- Versafine Inkpad (Majestic Blue)
- Organza (gold) and textured velvet (blue) ribbons
- 3 strips of Friendly Plastic (pink, blue and mixed)
- Pebeo Gilding Wax (Renaissance Gold)
How to make it:
- Trim blue and cream card to fit the card front. Stamp the border and sentiments with blue ink. Draw the faux stitching with the fine tipped pen.
- Edge the card blank with alcohol marker. Mat the topper onto blue card and glue to the card front. Add ribbon and bow.
- Trim the Friendly Plastic strips and lay them next to each other (touching) onto a Teflon sheet (or baking parchment). Heat the plastic using a heat gun until it just softens. Take care – waft the heat all around the piece to ensure evenly heated (i.e. not too much in one spot). You should see a change as it softens.
- Quickly press the stamp into the warmed plastic and leave to completely cool. Peel off the stamp and cut out the heart with scissors. Rub over the surface with gilding wax to highlight the texture.
- Glue on the heart with 3D glue gel. Finish with PVA pearls.
