Open Hearts Embossing Board Card

By:

Give this card to your loved one with an open heart for Valentine's Day, an anniversary, or just to say "I Love You." With just a few materials you can create this heartfelt card your special someone will want to save forever!

 

Materials:

  • Open Hearts Embossing Board
  • 2 Sheet Of Letter Size Card
  • 6mm Embossing Tool
  • Embellishments
  • Adhesive

 

Step 1

Take a piece of cardstock and lay this face down on the board butted up against the raised upstands in the top corner. Rub the drier sheet or candle onto the wrong side of the card which is facing you. This will make the reverse of the card slippy, and enable the tool to glide smoothly over the sheet. Take the embossing tool and insert into the leader channel at the top of the board.

 

Step 2

Emboss around the complete shape as directed in the other Keepsake projects.

 

Tip: When the pattern is very intricate it may help to emboss the design onto a sheet of paper first as a practice run, then keep this at the side of you for reference. When you have repeated the design several times you should get used to the direction the channels take. Don’t worry if you slip out of the channel as this will not mark the card on the front it only embosses where there is a channel.

 

Step 3

Position the tool in the channel and pull towards you until you feel some resistance; keep following the channel until you have a finished the outer design. With this shape, the centre design is seperate, and to emboss this, feel for the leader channel on the centre spine of the design which leads to the main inner-heart, and then the leader channel at the top of the inner heart leads to all the other channels, Push the tool around all channels and follow the shapes until the design is finished.

 

Step 4

Push the tool into the next channel and repeat the pattern on the other side of the card. Carefully cut around the outside of the embossed edges until you have a stand alone card.

 

Tip: If you wish to make a “Star” card, you can repeat this process a further 3 times and stick each card together at the back. This will create a free-standing card which creates a star shape.

 

Step 5

Take a corresponding sheet of cardstock in a different colour, and lay this down over the centre of the hearts on the board and emboss these shapes. cut these out and layer them over the main card design using foam pads to lift and give some definition.

 

Embellish each side with faux flowers and flat backed pearls or liquid pearls and ribbon bows and a sentiment as desired. This will be a nice card on its own, or you can mount it to a folded base card.
