Instructions: Click here to view more photos of this project. Card size: 4 3/4 x 6 3/4". The video above shows how to make a shaped card with dies. Fold a piece of white cardstock the size of card then place the die so that it hangs over the folded edge about 1/8” (just so that it does not cut the whole fold off), cut through both layers for your base. Cut another white top but this time cutting the full die on a single layer. Glue the full die cut to the card base matching all bottom and side curves. Cut a piece of vellum with the same outer die and cut off the very top so that it fits inside card. Put a line of glue just at the top then wipe off with your finger to make a super thin layer of glue before laying the vellum down on it.
Cut a Gold Luxe layer with the outer and the inner decorative die (no circles yet). The outer gold die cut will be used inside the card and the inner decorative die is for the front. Before gluing the gold to the front, cut a medium sized heart out of the middle. Now glue the gold onto the front. Cut a white heart frame using the same size heart as before and also a large eyelet heart together. Also cut the largest eyelet circle and then cut that with the largest basic circle to make a very thin circle frame for the gold circle in the center. Glue both frames on (be careful not to get glue on the gold paper as it will mess up the finish but you can clean it pretty well by applying a wet Q-tip then use a soft cloth to rub it dry).
For the inside: Emboss the medium heart left when making the heart frame. Cut an eyelet gold mat for the heart inside. Cut another white panel to match the card shape then emboss it and trim it to fit. Glue it to the inside, glue the gold outer edge on, glue the heart in the center (tip, place the heart upside down over the heart opening glue the gold mat to it upside down then put glue on the back which is face up and close the back of the card down onto it. Now your heart will be in the exact right place to show from the front of the card through the vellum). When dry, turn the card over and continue to decorate.
Stamp and emboss with gold, 2 sentiments on white cardstock. Die cut each out with smallest oval possible then edge with the gold painty pen. Glue one above the heart inside and the other at the bottom of the heart on the front.
Stamp, die cut and color 1 vine with hanging wisteria, right and left side of vine making a heart, and 1 of each bird. Glue the heart shaped vines to the front heart frame. Shape the vine with hanging wisteria a bit from the back then glue it to the top of the circle and heart, leave some wisteria up loose or use foam dots to pop up. Now glue both birds inside so that their heads are together and showing through the heart hole in front. Some flowers will be covered, not to worry. Glitter all the flowers and gloss all the leaves.
