On Your Special Day

Its Heartfelt Wednesday again !!!
I loved creating the Chalkboard effect when I did it
last time so I thought I would have another go!!

I have a mini tutorial on how to do the technique here.
Click on the pic below: 

To make the card I used the following:

HCDP1 249 Garden Romantique Paper Collection
459222 Paper Blossoms Tools
HCD 736 Classic leaf die
HCPC 3545 Open Leaf Cling stamp set
HCD1-734 Sun Kissed Fleur die
HCPC-3533 Sun Kissed Fleur Cling stamp set
HCPC-3640 Home is where the heart is Cling stamp
HCD1-728 Timeless Amour Die

Other Products Used : White and black card, Glitter glue, 3D foam pads, 
pearl gems, Victorian Velvet and Peeled Paint Distress inks, die cutting machine,
White ink, white embossing powder and heat gun.

Cut a 7" x 5" tent fold card. Cut two card fronts from the paper pad. 
Adhere one to the inner of the card. And adhere the second to the outer of 
the card. Stamp the image on a piece of black card 5 1/2" x 4" in white ink
and heat emboss with white embossing powder. Smudge white ink over the image
to create a chalk board look and distress the edges. Adhere to the card front
with 3D foam pads. Die cut a heart in white card. Glitter the edges of each 
layer and the swirls on the papers. Stamp, cut, colour and shape the leaves 
and flowers. Adhere a pearl to the centre of the flowers. Adhere the heart, 
flowers and leaves to the card and your project is complete.
