Framed Burlap Heart

Hi everyone!   Shirley with you today.  The frame challenge for this week really got me thinking about what is considered  as a frame.  I decided that not only does a decorative die cut serve as just a pretty embellishment, it actually does serve the purpose of framing a focal image that sits on top them.   Since I framed my hearts,  I have another frame for today's card.

I started my card with a ivory card base.  The second layer is paper from the Graphic 45 Botanical Tea.   I used the Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles to cut the decorative layer from Poison Ivory Curious Metallic card stock.   I used the Spellbinders A2 Divine Eloquence die to cut the next decorative frame.

I used a heart die to cut a burlap heart, two gold hearts and an ivory heart to make the layered heart.  I added a crocheted flower and a brad to finish up the framed heart ensemble.   I used Joy Foam Pads large to pop up the rectangle and the heart.   I added some pearls for the finishing touch to my card.

Thanks for coming to visit our blog today.  Have a wonderful week.
