A Detailed Heart to Heart

In my January Monthly Card Class I gave participants a choice of ways to make this final card.

For this card we cut the Detailed Heart die using a variety of papers, from Glimmer Paper to plain Whisper White and Real Red cardstock.  They all feature a sentiment from the Heart to Heart stamp set with the fabulous stamped frame that coordinates with the Story Label punch.


Some people are all about the sparkle – the more the better!  For this card we cut Rose Glimmer Paper and filled in with miscellaneous Glimmer Paper hearts cut from scraps in my stash.

Others wanted to go a more subtle route.  ​This one is so simple it doesn’t have any extra hearts filled in, just the ones left by the die.  The sentiment is stamped in VersaMark and heat set with Whisper White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I did add one extra Whisper White heart to it.

And this one is in between the other two…plain Whisper White on Real Red, but with a few Red and Sparkle Glimmer paper hearts added.

Glueing tips:  

  • If you don’t have any of the now-retired Adhesive Sheets tucked away in your stash to use for this intricate die (please replace these soon, SU!!!), put medium dots of glue on the filled-in hearts of the die cut, then quickly put tiny dots at strategic junctures and place it on your card base.  Turn the card base over and press evenly to get good adhesion.
  • To fill the hearts put a dot in the die-cut space then pop the heart into it…much easier than trying to put glue on the back of the heart and aiming it into the hole without getting glue everywhere.

​Here’s what was used to make these cards:
