BSS MONDAY IDEA - Sparkle Heart

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

This week's idea is to use a double sided Adhesive sheet to glitter the
background on an open heart die.

Click on the pictures to see an enlarged version to see detail.

The finished card

Close up of glittered heart

White textured card stock base is 6 x 5 inches tent folded.

Die cut the heart in the center of a 6 x 41/4 inch piece of white card stock
(Spellbinders -Vines of passion die 9S2-4022)
Cut the border out at the bottom of this same piece.
(Spellbinder's - A2 Scalloped Borders 2 (S5-214)
On a separate piece of pink card stock, 6x1 1/4 inch die cut
the border again.  Adhere the pink border to the white heart piece,
so the borders match.
Adhere a piece of designer paper 6x1 1/2 inches to the bottom of the
card base.
Adhere a 3 1/2 x 6 inch piece from of adhesive sheet to the card base.
Be sure to burnish it with your bone folder so the top protective layer will
come off easily.
Remove the top protective layer and adhere the piece with heart and
borders, being sure to press down on the heart so it is stuck too.
Now sprinkle a generous amount of glitter and rub around with your
fingers before tapping the excess off.
Front Sentiment (My Favorite Things - Home Spun Hearts clear set
Inside Sentiment - Penny Black-From the Heart clear set (30-207)
Inside border - Martha Stewart

Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a great day.
Until later...........

oh! such a pretty, old fashioned Valentine's Day card, Sue! Elegant, frilly, and lovely. I especially like the soft colors, and the layers at the bottom (and of course, the sparkle! LOL) xo

This is so lovely, Sue! The glitter behind the heart cut-out is a wonderful idea. I may have to try that.
