Cancer Awareness Heart (08/14/2015)

I am so excited to be bringing another Cancer Awareness card to Sparkle N Sprinkle's blog and my blog today! I was so excited about this reveal and helping to bring awareness to the fight to eradicate cancer. My card today is in light blue, which is the ribbon color for prostate cancer, which is a cancer that has touched my family. Here is the card I made:15-0814_01_CancerHeart_Cover
I used Sparkle N Sprinkle's Pink Ribbon Background Stamp Set 408, and stamped it with Versamark Ink Pad (VM-001) over a white cardstock panel, and heat embossed it with White Detail Embossing Powder (EP298). Then, I used an ink blending tool to apply Distress Ink in a light blue to the cardstock panel. The areas with the embossing powder resisted the ink, while the uncovered areas on the paper were colored with the blue ink. This made a really cool background! Here is a close up of the background:
I also used Sparkle N Sprinkle's Awareness Stamp Set 714P7's "Find a Cure" sentiment. I stamped it on a scrap strip of white cardstock with Versamark Ink Pad (VM-001) and sprinkled Baby Blue Opaque Embossing Powder (EP221) over it, then heat embossed it. Here is the sentiment strip:
I also used Die Version's Awareness Heart Whispers DV-484 to make the heart die cut. I masked off "cancer" and covered the rest of the die cut with Versamark Ink Pad (VM-001) and sprinkled Baby Blue Opaque Embossing Powder (EP221) over the entire image. I heat set it, which coated the entire die cut with embossing powder (except for the masked off area). After this, I unmasked the word "cancer" and covered it with Dimensional Glue (539) and sprinkled Sparkling Snow Semi-Transparent Glitter (G1003) over the glue. This really made the word pop out from the rest of the words within the heart. I also die cut a piece of fun foam, and placed the fun foam under the die cut to raise it up from the card panel behind it.
Here is another angle of the dimensional glue over the word - these photos don't do the dimension justice, it turned out really great in real life!
This was an honor to make this card, to help bring awareness to the fight against cancer, and to raise awareness about prostate cancer. Let's find a cure!

Thanks for stopping by, have a magical day!

  1. This is gorgeous. I especially like the dimension you've achieved. Loved it when I saw it posted on the SNS blog too.
