Strong Of Heart – Casing Sara Douglass. Morning one and all. I hope your day is going well. Today I am sharing a quick CASE (Copy And Share Everything) card using the Strong of Heart Stamp Set. This set is at the very front of the current Mini Catalogue and is the Make a Difference Stamp Set. This means that for every set sold, Stampin’ Up! donates £2.50/€3.00 to a local charity.
This year the charities are all those supporting heart health. In the UK the charity is the British Heart Foundation and is one that I have supported in the past by being Sponsored to ride the London to Brighton Cycle Ride. The ride is roughly 54 miles from Clapham Common to Brighton Seafront, with two very steep hills on the way. I have to say it was great fun!
When I saw Sara’s Black Heat Embossed card on Instagram I knew I needed to case it, but I wanted to change the colours so that they matched the British Heart Foundation colours. So the first card I made was using Poppy Parade. I think this is the perfect match to the British Heart Foundation corporate colour.
All you need to do is heat emboss the solid heart with Clear Embossing powder, then heat emboss the sentiment with White Embossing powder. Having embossed the sentiment I cut it into three and added them to the right of the heart. The finishing touch was to add some Elegant Faceted Gems around the heart and sentiment. Done.
I decided to see what the result would be if I went darker with my red, so chose Cherry Cobbler. The heart was embossed as before (for both cards I used a separate mat in the same colour card as the base, this helps to add some easy dimension). For the sentiment I changed colour of powder and went with Gold Metallic Powder. This give a more sophisticated result.
To finish the outside of the second card I added some Brushed Metallic Dots rather than the Elegant Faceted Gems. For both versions of the card I added a Basic White liner to the inside of the card, stamping three small hearts in the bottom left hand corner.
What do you think? Do you love this simple card design as much as I do? Please let me know in the comments below.
