A Heart of Gold with Pals Paper Arts

A Heart of Gold

Today’s card was made for a friend who lost his father last week and each item has a special meaning.  The tree is from Thoughts & Prayers and it represents life.  The hearts were colored in with a Real Red Stampin’ Marker with one heart filled in with Gold Glitz Dazzling Details, which is his dad’s heart because he had a heart of gold.  The embossed stars in the background mean that he is now among the stars watching over his loved one.

Heart of Gold

Maggie Made Tips:

  • Customize Your DSP. I absolutely love that we can color in the hearts from the Everyday Chic Designer Series Paper or leave it as is.  As I made the card for my friend I was reminded of the saying, “a heart of gold” and that’s when I decided to color in the hearts with real read and fill one in with gold.
