At Joan's Gardens Challenge #3

This card (pink and white, with at least one heart and a pretty border), is unlike anything I've tried before.
The background cardstock is stamped with a Hero Arts Cling Stamp, Heart Flourishes.  The edge diecut border  is created using Tim Holtz  Alterations Brackets Die. (Available at Joan's Gardens) I have NO idea where the heart shaped doily came from, but most likely the cake-decorating section of Walmart in a doily pack. Metal charm hearts from my stash---don't know the manufacturer. (It was at the bottom of my paper embellishments and cut outs box.  I ran it through the bigshot to flatten it completely, then adhered it to pink inked-edge cardstock with Glue N Seal.  

I tried a rub-on from K&Company called Sweet Talk. I did not like the way that the rub-on stuck (probably too many surfaces for a good adhere---so I will either spray or brush the surface with something to be sure that the big flourishy word "Love" is stuck down.  I'm thinking ModPodge, or Clear Acrylic spray---any suggestions? --OR just a light coat of  Inkessentials Glue N Seal  Both my ModPodge and  Glue N seal give a matte finish, and I really don't want a matte surface on this card.


  1. Oh Wow.....beautiful!!!!! I used my first rub-on the other day for a sentiment and it did great but it was a plain flat surface. I was surprise it even worked since it was about 5 years old.... Have a great weekend.

  2. Someone from Joan's Garden a year ago had those beautiful silver double metal hearts and she bought them at Walmart. I was able to find them at Walmart and Joaann Fabric in the wedding section and think I paid $3.00 for 24 of them. They are very beautiful on any card. Love you card

    1. It probably was me, Nancy--on the black and white wedding card I did for the son of a friend:
