Graceful Heart
by Dana Kirby


Hi Friends! I hope you all are doing well and having a Wonderful month. I am excited to be back today sharing a thank you card with you all. If you are like me, you never have enough thank you cards, so I always try and create a few when I have a little extra time. 


I started my card by creating my Alcohol Ink background. (Colors: Botanical, Sublime and Envy). I actually created two backgrounds. When I get the mess out for Alcohol Inks I usually create multiples. I did one background where I added the ink along with Blending Solution to a felt square and wiped it across my Yupo paper. I did the other one by using the same felt square but instead of wiping it across the Yupo I dabbed it onto the Yupo.


Both background would work for my card, but I decided to use the one where I wiped the color across my Yupo. Next, I used the Grace Heart Frame Die and die cut it from white cardstock. This is such a gorgeous die... 


I attached my die cut frame to my Yupo paper with liquid glue. I then used the heart die cut and stamped my sentiment (from the Art Deco You Are Wonderful stamp set) directly onto the heart. I inlaid the heart back into the frame with foam adhesive. 


To finish my card, I added a few clear sparkling jewels. 

Thanks for joining me today and I will be back soon to share another project with you all.

The fresh spring greens sure make the spring leaves pop! Are the greens from the new release by ranger? Thank you for this glimpse of spring!

Pretty background for you die, love the light greens!

Oh my, this is just WONDERFUL!! Such amazing design with this fabulous die and the alcohol greens!! Love so much the white heart with the Art Deco sentiment! Pinned! :)
And thanks so much for remembering me that I always need thank you cards, I have to make a bunch to have at hand!

Hi Dana, This card is really lovely, I love the colours you have created on the Yupo paper and topped with the Graceful Heart frame die-cut is a really lovely effect.
I still haven't tried alcohol inks on Yupo yet, I will be trying these techniques as 'both' your backgrounds are fabulous.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
