Friday Die Day

Hello friends

Back today with Friday Die Day.
With love in the air with Valentine's yesterday I have chosen
a heart themed card using Die D'Lite die set - Industrial 2.
This is a six piece die set and the approximate measurements are:

Light Bulb: 1.20 x 1.90 in
Wire: 0.60 x 1.00 in
Small Wheel: 0.90 x 0.90 in
Medium Wheel: 1.00 x 1.00 in
Large Wheel: 1.10 x 1.10 in
Inspire: 3.00 x 0.70 in 

Using Classic Hearts I cut an outer and inner heart from 
silver engraving card.

The heart die cut.

Using an assortment of engraving card colours - silver, gold and copper,
I used Industrial 2 and gut mutiple gears.

Just using an emery board to reveal the colour beneath and leaving a little 
of the black in place for a vintage look.

I roughly set out a design that would fit inside the heart outline.

Once I was happy with this (and realised I had the light bulb upside down!)
I mounted them onto kraft card.
I used some liquid glue and affixed the light bulb with 3D Foam Squares.
I typed a sentiment (font is Bell MT), cut and inked the edges with distress ink.

The finished card with some black matting.

Not necessarily a Valentine's...

Take care friends.
