Jan 08, 2008 - Frames  "With Love"

Valentines day  Card  6.5"h x 5.5"w
I used my Sizzix Dies to punch out the large frame and the hearts from mat board. I painted the hearts with several coats of Delta Acrylic paint Tompte Red and then a coat of Lumiere Crimson and sprinkled some red glitter. Punched a hole for my gold eyelets and strung them up onto the frame with gold metallic thread. Added the Peel Offs hearts and words from my new designs. Then gave the front and back a light coat of Diamond Glaze to add shine and to protect the Peel Offs.

For the frame I painted one coat of acrylic red. Took a piece of white tissue paper (packing tissue) and rubber stamped the large flourish (Quietfire Design), several times to cover the area, with Brilliant Gold and embossed it with Detail gold. Adhered it to my mat board frame with diluted Golden's soft gel medium. I had previously cut out the window section of the frame on a piece of cream colored cardstock and created the smaller front inset card. Rubber stamped the large flourish again with the gold stamp pad and the quote (Quietfire Design "Fill your paper") with soft charcoal stamp pad. When the frame was dry, I attached the cream cardstock both to the frame and to the sheet of very light gold Emboss paper. Trimmed the gold paper and adhered it to my main red Bazill Monochromatic cardstock. Added some gold Peel Offs borders, gave it a lacier more romantic look.

The inside of the card is blank at the moment.

NOTE: This is one of the designs on the Peel Offs "Love" sheet that have just been released and will be available around Jan 2008 to retail outlets, It comes in gold, silver, black, and white. There will also be "It's a Boy, It's a Girl", You're Invited" Congratulations" "Thanks & "Birthday". Two more will be coming out later in the year I think.
