Black and Gold Heart...
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.
