Make My Heart Smile with 3D Foam Hearts and Pigment Powder Card Tutorial

Hello everyone! I am so excited to show you all my Valentines Day card. When I saw these 3D Foam Hearts, balloons came to mind! LOL! This is the card I created…what do you think?

I started by grabbing my 3D Foam Hearts and some Pigment Powder Pink and Pigment Powder Wine (coming soon!)…LOVE the combination. All you have to do after removing the liner is rub the powders into the shape. Fabulous shimmer to them too 🙂 Bonus: I rubbed gold foiling on a small heart as accent.

Next I placed them on a white cardstock card panel, poked holes with the Tool ‘n One™ by lifting each bottom tip of the larger hearts and thread Girlie Grunge Twine in Pink (coming soon!) through. To secure the twine, I adhere them with Dodz™ Small (double-sided clear adhesive dots) in the back.

Once I finished I used another Dodz™ Small to adhere the three Twine strands in the front. Then I tied a bow and secured it with another Dodz™ Small to finish. Set aside.

Let’s work on the card base. I had an A2 (4.25 x 5.5″) pink card base that I embossed with heart design embossing folder. I cut 4.25 x 1.5″ strip out of patterned paper. Adhered with E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips.

Going back to the card panel, I stamped the sentiment and edged the panel with the same ink as sentiment. Added sequins for a little sparkle with Girlie Grunge Art Medium (coming soon!). It needed a little bit more, so I placed Creative Photo Corners Gold and then I adhered the card panel with 3D Foam Squares – White, Regular to card base.
