To create this card you will need:
Soho Subway Designer Series Paper (#130140)
Brushed Gold card stock (#102935)
Early Espresso card stock (#119686)
Very Vanilla card stock (#101650)
Gold Encore Pad (#132141)
Vintage Trinkets (#118764)
Pretty Print Embossing Folder (#132175)
Hearts Collection Framelits (#125599)
Magnetic Platform (#130658)
Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (#113439)
Using my Stampin' Trimmer I cut this card at 5-1/2"  Score at 2-1/8" on each side.  This will create a tri fold card.
 
Emboss this Very Vanilla card stock with the Pretty Print Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.  'Guild' the top of this raised 'romantic' type print with the Gold Encore Metallic Pad rubbed gently across the top of the raised embossing.
Cut in 1/2 and using my SNAIL Adhesive adhere so it meets back up in the middle of this card.
Adding a dash of Vintage fun these metal Vintage Trinkets.  The fun buttons are actually brads and though this card is romantic and a dash feminine, lol, this metal accent is a little nod to the men in our lives - lol.
Pierce this card... well, let the vintage 'safety pin' do this to the card!  I love the graphic and edgy feel it adds to the card.  These Vintage Trinkets come in Antique Brass, Antique Gold and Pewter.  Though small they add a big impact!
Using my Hearts Framelits, Big Shot and Magnetic Platform Punch out the Brushed Gold larger heart and the next size down in the Soho Subway Designer Series Paper.  Because our paper is double sided these images vary but coordinate!  Less wasted paper and double the pleasure!
 
The Gold Encore pad and Brushed Gold card stock add elegance and shine to this refined card.
Adhering them with Hot Glue (this stands up to the embossing and the interaction of this card).  One heart is adhered across the top of the heart while the bottom 'floats' and the other is the bottom adhered while the top 'floats'.  This allows for them to interact.
 
Add a little more love to this card... using the smallest of the Hearts Collection Framelits, pop out the center for these two small hearts.  This allows me to use 'unused' parts of the Brushed Gold hearts while adding a fun accent to the inside of the card.
These hearts will stay strong as they interact... delivering some love to those who receive it!
 
They kind of wrap the card in love (or a hug).
Who would YOU give this card to??  Wedding??  Anniversary??  Just Because??  Leave me a comment and let me know!
 
I love that you came by today!  Please share me (and the love) with your family and friends!  I try to post tutorials and projects daily... so come by and visit often!
 
No matter what type of love... this card is sure to warm hearts while sending hugs.  Thankfully love doesn't go out of style... so send vintage wishes of love that will wow!  I come from a long line of love.. my grandparents were married for 70 years... so cherish every moment - and celebrate... send a hand-stamped card!

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
