Hello! I’ve gotta be honest. I’m not really into hearts. I’m more of a hexagon, star, and moon kinda gal. Unless they’re anatomical hearts…but that’s a whole ‘nuther thing. So, it’s easy to figure out I’m not really interested in Valentine’s Day. But the Jagged Love stencil from A Colorful Life Designs is definitely more my style though because it’s asymmetrical and broken up. I knew I could make something cool with it.

I had recently gotten some new gorgeous foils from Therm O Web, and this stencil was begging to be foiled with the Gina K Designs Fancy Transfer Foil in Red Velvet. This is the most delicious shade of red, and I absolutely love it. On a piece of black cardstock, I swiped Therm O Web’s Transfer Gel Duo over the stencil and let it dry. It goes from white to clear, but stays tacky, so you’ll know when it’s ready for foil. Be sure to clean your stencil off immediately! I used my laminator to apply the pressure needed adhere the foil properly. The result is seriously awesome. I fussy cut around the heart, leaving just a thin border.
I found a really old piece of black cardstock that has fine fibers running through it and some little bits of glitter. I thought it looked great with the heart. I took a piece of vellum and heat embossed my sentiment, which is from the Stampers Anonymous and Tim Holtz Noteworthy stamp set. I tore the bottom to go with the Jagged Love stencil. I swiped Silvery Shimmer Delicata Ink from Imagine around the edges of my white card base and called the card done.
For someone that doesn’t love hearts, I am really happy with this card. I think this stencil is cool, and I am excited to use it in a few ways. What shapes do you like?
