Black and Gold Heart...

Happy Saturday,

A little more drama for today and one of my first cards made using the new Foundations mirror card.  I haven't been a fan of mirror card recently as it can look a little brassy however this one has a strong gold colour and as you can tell from the picture doesnt crack when embossed.

I started by embossing a piece of mirror card wth the honeycomb haven A4 embossing folder which as mentioned didn't crack nor show any of the white backing.

Next I added 2 strips of black seam binding which works really well on the mirror card as it is slightly transparent so the colour shows through a little.

Next I cut the Jewelled heart in gold and in black cutting the centre heart out from the gold version and cutting the centre from the laced heart in the middle of the black heart.  I then added the gold over the black to make a shadow and then added the centre cut gold heart behind this.


I then simply added a seam binding bow with added gold metallic linx and a Creative Expressions vintage button in the centre.  The sentiment its made using the Love sentiment die in the jewelled heart die as a tag on line of the fall away hearts form the centre.

Enjoy...

  18. What a dramatic card, John. I need to get some of this mirri card - my stock is low and it all appears to be that very brassy colour.

  25. Eh up John
    Classy not brassy, just like your good self 😆. I don't know why but makes me think of the lid of a very posh box of chocolates and equally as delicious!

  30. Hi John,
    Stunning, superb and brilliant design.
    I must invest in some of that mirror card as it looks really very luxurious and gorgeous.
    I agree with Ang it also reminds me of a very posh box of chocolates lid, but then I love chocolate, and would be tempted by that lid even if it didn't have chocolates in as it's so very beautiful.
    I could just do with that heart die today for a project I'm making.
    Lots of crafty regards. Jenny L.

  31. Hello John,
    I've lost my voice so it's quiet around here today!! Lol!
    What a lovely card! I , like many others, used mirri card years ago and then went off it! Now we have new ways to use it. It's a lovely gold though!
    I saw that Brenda! You are impossible!
    Love Myra
