I had so much fun creating this card! I used products from this release, along with one of my favorite color mediums! I began by creating a fun and vibrant rainbow background using the Dina Wakley Media Gloss Sprays (colors listed in product list) and a piece of heavyweight white cardstock in a splatter box (my favorite way to recycle the free boxes we get from Costco!).


While that was drying, I cut the Stylized Heart die twice, adhered them together, then cut a double-sided adhesive piece trimmed to fit the back of the heart and inlayed the negative pieces. I then cut the Outline Love die in gold and silver cardstock and repeated the same steps as above.


Next, I used the Polka Hearts stencil to add polka dots, using the same colors as I used for the background, spraying them over the stencil (then immediately rinsing with warm water and Dawn dish soap!) Once dry, I cut it down to size then added a few splatters of white paint. Once dry, I mounted the panel onto an A2-sized, top-folding card base with strong double-sided tape. Next, I adhered the heart with thin foam adhesive and glued the LOVE die-cut on the top. To finish, I gold heat embossed I love you from the Family Headline stamp set, trimmed it to size, and adhered it with foam adhesive.


Thank you so much for joining me today! I hope you enjoyed reading more about my card and are inspired by it! Don’t forget to hop along and comment for your chance to win!

  6. You reversed. Usually the heart would be the "stained glass" and the background would be simple but this is revered here and I love it. What a great idea. Thanks for this.
