For A Loved One

This week's Tanda Teaser is called "For A Loved One". As we are now so close to Valentines day I thought that it would be a good idea to set a Valentines Day challenge, however I remember from last year that not everyone has a significant other, so this year I have broadened the theme to make it for any loved one. My card is the card that I have made for my husband....he isn't a fan of pink, but loves purple so instead of a pink card I have made him a purple one. This was fun to do...I have just bought myself a melting pot with my Christmas money and this was the first time that I have used it.

To make this card I used Milled Lavender and Dusty Concord to colour and stamp the card layers. (The stamps were from Tanda Klimt set 1)

To make the hearts I stamped the big square swirly stamp on smooth white card in Black Soot. Then I coloured the swirls with Copic Markers. Once this was done I positioned some tiny cookie cutters onto the stamped image and sprinkled a tiny bit of purple glitter inside the cutters. After this I poured molten UTEE into the cutters, allowed it to cool for a few seconds and then removed the cutters. Once the UTEE had cooled down completely, the card under the hearts was trimmed so that it was flush with the edge of the UTEE. The hearts were then mounted onto white mulberry paper and then matted and layered onto the stamped card mats that I had prepared earlier. The tag was embossed in a Cuttlebug embossing folder before being rubbed with Milled Lavender distress ink. The ribbon started off white, but I coloured with two shades of Copic Markers so that it matched the UTEE hearts.

Oh, those hearts came out so beautifully! Did you heat again after removing the cutters? The edges look kind of rounded and I'm just wondering if it did that of its own accord or had some "encouragement"!
