Kiss Cut and More

Another Valentine design created in the crafting area of my home. Again I did the kiss cut technique but also made my own fiber bow embellishment for this card too. I learned both of these things from Demo Donna at Sparkle N Sprinkle. I love to view the videos and learn how to use more of my acquired supplies.

I used a couple of dies in my design and lots of adhesive paper, glue, glitter and score tape. The frame die of red card stock was a square one but since I wanted it to fill an A2 size card I extended the frame. I did this by cutting the frame in two, gluing it to the base card at the top and the bottom and then over the bare area I added a double adhesive sheet which had silver glitter on one side of it, This created the illusion of a bigger frame.

My heart die cut was done with the kiss cut method and when I had the die all filled in with my glitters of choice, I then fussy cut a small border around it and peeled off the sticky layer and then added another edging of the red glitter. I wanted this design popped over the frame.

At the top of the frame I stamped the sentiment from Gina K. Designs Stately Flowers 6 set in Gina K. Designs Red Hot ink. I still thought it needed something else so I took a piece of 1/4 inch score tape and rolled it between my fingers and then dipped it in silver glitter. This made a fiber cord and I then created a simple bow with it and added it to my card.

Here is another view which shows more of the details from a different perspective.

You are really rocking this glitter kiss idea. This is such a beautiful design and I covet that heart die. How clever of you to cut the frame in half so it would cover the whole piece. I must remember that idea.
