Heart Card

by Sharon Jeffs

Heart Card



  • Cut your cardstock to the following dimensions –
    • CoreDinations card –
      • (Main piece) 12 inches by 4 ¼ inches.
      • (Die cut piece A) 5 ½ inch by 6 inches.
      • (Die cut piece B) 4 ½ inches by 5 ½ inches.
    • Swiss Dots - 5 ¾ inches by 4 inches.
    • Scrap square of approximately 3inch by 3 inches.
  • Fold Main piece in half with the red side on the inside to form the body of the card. Sand edges of black side.

  • Beginning with the scrap of swiss dots card, layer it over the solid heart section of the die and run through your die cutting machine to cut. (I used my cuttlebug for this die, with only the two “B’ pads).

  • Run the die back through the machine using Die cut piece A. I cut mine with the black side facing up.
  • Finally, die cut Piece B with the Nestabilities label die.

  • Place this piece into the embossing folder and emboss so that the raised side of the pattern is on the black side. Sand the raised sections to reveal the red.

  • Spritz the black side of the ornate heart with the Cherry Ice smooch spritz. When dry, coat with Glossy accents. Put aside to dry thoroughly.

  • Spritz the wings with Vanilla shimmer smooch spritz and the crown with the Log Cabin spritz.
    Once the crown has dried, add a dot of Picket Fence Stickles to each of the top sections of the crown and put aside to dry thoroughly.

  • Begin assembling the card. Onto the main piece, adhere the Swiss dots piece then add the embossed label die over the top left side at a tilt.

  • Cut the ribbon in half and tie a knot. Add this along the bottom of the card and snip off any overhanging ribbon.

  • Add Swiss dot heart to top of ribbon knot.

  • Adhere the wings and the crown to the heart.

  • Apply pieces of the foam squares to the back of the ornate heart die and adhere to the Swiss dots heart. Add black pearls to the flourishes on the heart and the top corners of the Swiss dots mat to finish.

NB. This card was inspired by my daughter Emma who loves all the things this card represents for her.
