How to craft a love & lace mixed media heart

Cut or trace heart from cream striped cardstock that comes in the Ephemera. I used my Cricut Expression and the Plantin SchoolBook cartridge at 3 1/2".

Then tear vertical strips from the dictionary paper that's also included in the Ephemera, and glue to the heart, cutting around the excess edges.

Cover the entire heart with gesso, making vertical strokes when applying. It's kinda hard to see the texture here, but make sure to let it dry completely before applying your sprays.

Spray heart while it's wet, and use a toothbrush dipped lightly in the jar of LSG Magical. Flick it randomly to create a sandy texture. You can see where I used it in the center and along the right.

Place heart without adhering it, where you want on your card, and stamp rose cluster, using the Bo Bunny Floral Stamp and Ranger's Archival Black Ink, onto the heart and background at the same time.

Take the heart off, apply some Glitter Paste (Sugar) with the Tim Holtz Stripes Stencil. Once dry, use the Tim Holtz Paper Distresser around all of the edges. These can be bought at

Sew around the edges, and tuck in the pink flower that comes in the Noteworthy pack. The button, black alpha stickers that spell "my", and the black flower are more goodies found in the Ephemera pack.

Carefully removed top layer of "Love" from the Layered Chipboard, eliminating the back, floral layer, for a cleaner, masculine look, since this is now my husband's Valentine's card. He deserves it!

Here is your finished Love & Lace Card. You can find all these supplies at Tutorial is by design team member Drea.
