Henna Hearts – Makeover Monday

Aloha!!  Welcome to Makeover Monday!!

Greeting card created with Stampin' Up's Henna Hearts Stamp Set for Makeover Monday. #Stampin' Gala, #Julie Gilson, #Heat Embossing, #Handmade Cards

A simple image included in the Henna Hearts Stamp Set is the focus of today’s Makeover Monday card.   

To begin, I stamped the image with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Silver Embossing Powder.  I colored parts of the image with the Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Dark Marker.  

In addition, I added several layers. The silver layer is actually heat embossed in Silver Embossing Powder.  To do this, I applied VersaMark Ink directly to the card stock, sprinkled with Silver Embossing Powder and used the Heat Tool.  

To complete, I added several Rhinestones and a bow,

Here are the dimensions:

Fresh Freesia, 11 X 4-1/4, score 5-1/2
Basic White, 5-1/8 X 3-7/8
Basic White, 5 X 3-3/4
Fresh Freesia DSP, 5 X 2
