Project Club - January 2015 ¤ Main Card ¤

The set this month comprises of three sentiments, one heart cluster, one bride heart, one tiara, one groom heart and one top hat.  This is the main card for this months project club over at Nina Crafts.
Materials Required
Project Club Stamps and Card Kit
Acrylic Block
VersaMark Stamp Pad
VersaFine – Onyx Black Ink Pad (optional) 
Silver Embossing Powder
Anti-Static Pad
Corner punch
Scoreboard 
Foam Tape or Pads
Double Sided Tape
PVA Glue
Low Tack Tape or Sticky Notes (optional)

I used the VersaFine - Onyx Black ink on this card, I find that I get a chrome colour finish when it has been heat embossed with the silver powder.  I found it gave me a better line on the gray card.  Try using different inks with your coloured embossing powders, you can get some really good effects.

Using the largest piece of white card, cut it so it measures 20.2cm x 14cm.  Using this piece of card and your scoreboard, score a line along the 20.2cm edge at 2cm on the top and bottom sections.  The scored line should be raised on the front of the card.  Use the anti-static bag on this card.  Using the little heart cluster stamp, stamp along the bottom score line adding the embossing powder as you go.  If you can't see the scored line properly use a little of the low tack tape (remember to de-tack it before applying to your card) or a sticky note placed along the line.  Heat emboss this line of hearts.
There are three different text stamps, select the two you want and stamp one in the top section of the card and the other on the bottom section as in the picture.  Add the silver embossing powder and heat emboss each sentiment.
Round the corners of this piece of card and using double sided tape attach it to the base card.  Round the corners of the base card.
Use the anti-static bag on the white pearlescent and the peach coloured card.  Stamp the bride heart onto each piece of card.  If the peach card is too much for you, you can use the plain white card that's in your kit instead and colour the skin section in.  Add the silver embossing powder and heat emboss the hearts.
Use the anti-static bag on the gray pearlescent and the white card.  Stamp the groom heart onto each piece of card.  Add the silver embossing powder and heat emboss the hearts.
Cut out the bride peach heart, cut out the bride white pearlescent heart, cutting off the skin section leaving the dress.  Cut out the groom white heart, cut out the gray pearlescent heart removing the shirt section from this heart.
Use the PVA glue and attach the dress to the peach heart.  Use PVA glue to attach the jacket and tie to the white heart.  Use foam tape or pads to attach the hearts to the card front.
Remove all the waste bits from the die cut bell.  The bell can be attached to the card as is or you can use some of the waste card from the hearts for the background on them.
I used the peach card.  Use little dabs of PVA on the back of the bells and stick to the required card, once dry cut out around the bell.  Attach to the card front with PVA glue or foam pads.
To finish add the gems to the bottom left hand corner.
That's it for this month's project club, hope you enjoy your stamps J
