Valentine's Heart Card

It's official! This card has the most comments of all of my personal cards on Splitcoast. It is so dazzling in person. I used Stampin Up's chunky glitter on this chipboard heart that I die cut with my Cuttlebug. I used some pretty Valentine's paper I got at Archivers last week and not wanting to cover it up I layered it even on the middle strip. The layout is this weeks TSSC (techno stamper sketch challenge.)

The medallion is my favorite part. I made it up all by myself LOL! I used burgundy cardstock with circle Nestabilities die then I cut a piece of pink pirouette cardstock with a scallop die and went back and cut the inside with a plain die to make a "ring" or "frame" and placed that on the burgundy piece. Then I stamped the circle sentiment and placed that in the middle. I used a 1/2" punch to punch out one of the hearts from the paper and put that in a build a brad, then put the brad in the middle of the sentiment. I put the whole medallion up on dimensionals so it overlaps the chunky heart. So there you have it!

I can understand why so many people comment on this card. Looks like an entire weeks worth of work if I were to attempt it!

Beautful! I can see why this card received so many comments on SCS. And glitter is never as impressive on the computer as it is in real life!

Yep, Beautiful is the word alright!!

Hey, there's such a thing as build a brad? New to me. Sounds like a great idea. What does it look like before you mess with it?

Awesome Cheryl! I am so glad it made it on time, I was worried. I tried to pick one that you really liked on my blog to send :) The build a brad is a flat 1/2 inch brad that has a rim and you put a 1/2 inch circle picture on it then you use the adhesive backed rounded piece of plastic to put on top. I hope that made sense!

Thank you everyone on your comments about this card! :)
