Suspended Heart LOVE Card - OWH ODBD November Challenge

The November Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge at Operation Write Home: 
Each month that we reach the goal of 50 entries,  Our Daily Bread Designs donates up to two boxes of free shipping for our heroes–1 for 25 cards posted and 2 for 50.
Make a card with a heart on it and share a link to it to help reach that goal !

All supplies used were available through Stampin' Up!;
most are now retired however there are many 
other fabulous companies that make similar items.

Die cut the front of the card base
and the slightly smaller card front with the 
Movers and Shapers Die system.

Letterpress plate (no ink)
the card front.You can also use
embossing folders, rubber stamps
or decorative papers.
I used watercolor paper to make a deeper impression.

Punch two hearts.
This punch coordinates with the
Movers and Shapers die, it is slightly smaller.

You will sandwich clear fishing line/thread
between the two heart shapes (back to back)
with a strong adhesive. I used double stick tape.

Use double stick tape to attach the 
string between the front of the card base
and the back side of the decorative card front piece.

For a little fun surprise for the recipient when you make a card like this,
you can gently twist the suspended die cut a few times before inserting it
into the envelope. When the recipient opens the card,
the suspended piece will spin around a few times ! 

Here are some other Suspended Shape cards I have made,
several have tutorials :

Thanks for looking =)
