These are both standard size cards on black glossy stock. The center layer of each was done by cutting strips of leftover Christmas gift wrap and adhering it to black glossy cardstock diagonally in two different directions, then cut to size.
The silver cording is also left over from Christmas packages. The heart in the center is a wooden heart shape dipped in UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel) in my melting pot. Several colors of glitter and embossing powders were added while the UTEE was still hot, then it was dipped in the clear UTEE again.
