Gold Wire and Bead Wedding Heart

One of the members of staff at Nursery, Leighanne is getting married next Saturday and I wanted to make her a card. As that is what I do! She told me on Thursday that the theme was gold hearts, so I decided to go with just that for this card.

The Creative Card Crew challenge is:

Warm Colours

And gold is a warm colour! Just that I've not used any others! I wanted it just to be this heart and bead embellishment that I made. I did think about layering it up onto gold vellum and white embossed card, but decided against it.

I made this heart with thick gold wire for the shape, and it is double thickness and then threaded some gold buggle and seed beads onto some thinner wire which was then wrapped across the heart shape. It took me about half an hour to make it and I had to make sure that the actual shape of the heart didn't distort. It is attached to the card with wire - I made holes with a pin and then threaded the wire through, twisted the ends on the reverse and then glued to secure them.
Simple card but I think it works!
  • Heart embellishment: Made by me
