Island Indigo Flowerfull Heart Slider Card

by Joanne James6. January 2014 21:09

Today has been a fun day, with my first class of the year. A fun - if quiet! - time was had by all, with all my ladies being very accommodating of my continued voiceless state. I'll share more on our class makes later in the week, but today I'm sharing a card that I am entering for this week's Pals Paper Arts challenge, PPA186, which is to use the following colours:


With this in mind, I inked up my Flowerfull Heart stamp again but this time made a slider card - take a look:


I stamped the heart in Versamark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder, then layered the heart on another one made from gold foil. When the ribbon end is pulled, it reveals the message inside:

The inside of the slider card is stamped with my favourite stamp from the 'Follow My Heart' set on the lower inside panel, and the valentine stamp from the 'Delightful Dozen' on the extending top section (I replaced the stamped heart with a gold foil one). I think this would make a lovely masculine valentine's card; the gold foil and embossing adds a real luxurious feel.

I will be sharing a video tutorial on how to make this card as soon as my voice returns, so stay tuned. Meanwhile, check out the inspiration from the designers and participants over at Pals Paper Arts here.

Back tomorrow with another card; until then, happy stampin'!

Thanks Linda - the colour combination really appealed and the PPA designer cards this week were all fantastic, so I just had to have a go.

Love the colours in this card - looks lovely with the gold embossing. Can't wait to get my heart stamp and start creating my own cards.

Hi Leigh-Anne - so glad you liked it! I was two weeks without my voice and only stopped coughing enough to begin recording videos again this week so I haven't yet done this one. It's on my list though so keep checking back and I will post as soon as it's done. x

Island Indigo is such a great colour and the gold really stands out to on this card - I think I'm becoming addicted to gold foil!
