I LOVE this new release and it was hard to choose which set to use but I finally settled on Wings of Love with the coordinating Wavy Hearts die. The sentiment is from Twitterpated. I LOVE the simple sentiments from each of these sets and the heart with wings? SWOON..........
I started my card with this week's Deconstructed Sketch, although I left off a couple panels in the long run. It was, however, the inspiration for my card! I stamped the heart/wings stamp in Versamark ink onto acetate paper and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The heart itself was cut from corrugated cardboard with the Wavy Hearts Die. I finished the heart by swiping some Vintage Cream ink across some of the raised cardboard. The sentiment was cut with a die and was scored so I could fold it to give it "wings". Some lace trim, adhesive gems and some twill ribbon tied with a button and some linen thread finish the tag. I rounded the corners with a corner chomper and finished the card with some machine stitching. All of the patterned papers are from the Crate Paper Paper Heart Collection (6x6).
Here is a close up of the corrugated cardboard heart and acetate wings......
