Vine Heart Valentine’s Day Card

In the January 2018 Spellbinders Die of the Month Kit there was a heart die that creates a vine cutout that can be inlaid back into the heart creating a unique and pretty card.  I created two cards using this die, using the positive and negative die cuts for each card.

For the first card the heart die was cut from both Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock and Doodlebug Designs Purple Petite Prints.  The purple vine was inlaid back into the white base heart.  I used Scotch Tape to keep the two pieces of the heart together until Darice Sticky Back Foam was added to the back to create dimension and adhered the pieces together.  The Doodlebug paper  was die cut using a Memory Box Stitched Rectangle.  This die cuts an a rectangle, and also a very narrow stitched border when cutting out the rectangle.  For the first card the interior rectangle was used for the card, adding purple cardstock from my stash 1/8″ larger as an accent.  Both rectangles were adhered together using Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.

Darice Sticky Back Fun Foam was added to the back of the heart to add dimension and then it was adhered to the patterned paper rectangle with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.  The sentiment is from Penny Black’s Heartfelt and was stamped with Distress Oxide Wilted Violet Ink.

A side folding A2 cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock and the focal image rectangle was adhered with the same dotliner adhesive.  Sequins from Doodlebug Designs Lilac and Pretty Pink Posh Sugar Plum Mix Sequins were scatted around the heart and adhered with Ranger Multi Medium Matt and the card was done.

The second card was created in  pretty much the same way with the exception that 80# white cardstock was die cut with the same Memory Box Rectangle and the thin purple stitched border from the first card was adhered to edge of the cardbase.  The vine of the heart was cut an additional three time and stacked and adhered together with Elmer’s Craft Bond Spray Adhesive.  Since the heart was purple, the sentiment was stamped with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Gina K. Designs Detail White Embossing Powder.
