I got a little metal edge with my embossed (hand cut) heart element, and I had a lot of fun using red Dylusions paint + White Gesso + brown ink to create my background. Loads of mixed media elements happening – but simple card! The black words are from the new Tim Holtz Chit Chat… loving the bigger size!

Supplies Used:

If you’re into Mixed Media techniques + cards you might want to check out my online class!


It is self-paced and available now. There are also some bonus lessons being added soon + contributors. It’s a fun class!

  1. May, I really love this card! I love the texture, how it looks like a piece of a metal thing (yeah my great terminology), how the kraft type color or paper shows through, the stitching. All of it. I really love all of your cards they are all awesome but this one has really jumped out at me. Love! Michelle t

  2. I love the simplicity here (less is always more IMHO) and what a clever way to use that embossing die. You’ve given me great inspiration for creating a card for my hubby.

  3. You know I love your stitching, May! And you’re always so innovative. I don’t think I would’ve ever though to make a card have a cool faux-metal-panel texture like that. Brilliant!

  4. I adore the embossed heart which makes such a strong and striking impact on the front of your beautiful card! Just fabulous, May! 🙂

  5. Love the grungy edgy design with the fun metallic heart! Perfect for a masculine or feminine card!

  6. From the embossing to the stitching there is so much wonderful texture in your card! I love the colors you chose to play with, too! TFS!
