This card was a commission - it is for a 50th anniversary.
Cuttlebug large hearts were cut from heavyweight chipboard... which I do not recommend. I have broken too many B spacer boards on the heavyweight coasters.... the lightweight coasters fortunately do not break the Cuttlebug spacers.
For the gold heart I pressed the die-cut heart into a Perfect Medium pad (Ranger product - it is similar to VersaMark, a watermark ink) then dipped into Gold Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel (UTEE). I repeated the UTEE two times and achieved a non-textured and smooth surface. A Krylon 18kt gold leafing pen was used on the outer rim.
The second die-cut heart was adhered to a die-cut heart cut from 7gypsies paper then sponged with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Pads. This layout is Valerie Stangle's. Card base is a 5" Fabriano.
Marvy scalloped circle punch was punched from the reverse of the Crate paper featured on the card front. Each of the five gold brads represents a decade, as do the gold cord wraps.
