This is for all you die-hard Twilight fans. (I probably shouldn’t use that term!!). I just made this card today. Funny how inspiration comes to you. I was out walking my dog this morning and I passed by a car that had a crystal hanging from the rear view mirror. As I am reading Eclipse at the moment (the 3rd in the series) it got me thinking about the crystal heart that Edward gave Bella (and we all go AAHHHH!!). Anyway, I was thinking about it on a card and came up with this. Last week our team challenge was to use red and embossing. Since I hadn’t got around to doing it yet I thought that would work well with this card.
Here is a close-up of the heart so you can see the sparkle.
I stamped the Baroque Motifs swirl in Versamark and Basic Black and clear embossed them on Real Red card. I did the same with the word ‘cherish’. I stamped the heart from ‘Best Wishes and More’ in versamark onto vellum. I sprinkled over heat and stick powder and heated it with the heating tool. I then sprinkled over dazzling diamonds and heated it again slightly. You need to heat the vellum gently so it doesn’t burn. I cut it out and adhered it to the card. I sponged around the edges with basic black. I then adhered this to black card and then to real red base. There you have it.- Bella’s crystal heart!! TFL.
