Don't you think the embossing folder reminds us of pearls? I heat embossed my heart, which is a Hero Arts stamp called Blooming Heart, with Brilliance Platinum ink, and clear embossing powder on an ivory card stock. I wanted a subtle effect, but it was a bit too subtle, so I coloured the heart with Faber Castell's metallic gold gelato, smudging it all over, then wiping excess off. I love how that turned out. The sentiment is the same ink stamped on vellum, which is difficult to read in the photo, but OK IRL. I added some very old pearl buttons from my sewing kit, and mounted the panel with dimensionals.
My next card uses the same ef, but this time I was aiming for a more contemporary feel. The birds are from a Verve set called appropriately, Anniversary Birds, and to complete the image, I punched two branches from a Stampin Up punch, stamped and cut out a heart from a Sweet n' Sassy set called Bottom of My Heart and used their sentiment too. A few pearl embellishments completes this card.
