A Flurry of Hearts

This card was inspired by one I saw a few years ago by Dana Seymour. You can see her card at: http://forum.papertreyink.com/forum/gallery2.php?g2_itemId=76070.

There are times when I want to give my husband or children a card letting them know how much I love them.  I really like how this one turned out. It is clean and simple, yet elegant.

The hearts are from Papertrey Ink Heart Prints and were cut with the matching dies. I stamped them on Gina K. Designs 120# Ivory Cardstock with VersaMark ink, applied Ranger Platinum Embossing Powder, and heat set it with my Marvy Embossing Heat Tool.

The cardbase is also Gina K. Design 120# Ivory Cardstock, cut to 4 1/4″ x 11″ and folded at 5 1/2″.  The hearts were scattered on the lefthand side of the card front.  Two were adhered directly to base with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the others were adhered with 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape to add dimension.

For the sentiment I used a scrap of cardstock and completely covered it with VersaMark ink and applied Ranger Platinum Embossing Powder twice to give it a smooth finish.  I then cut the word love from Hero Arts Stamp & Cut Love die three times and adhered them together with Tombo Mono Multi Glue. Before adhering the die cut I stamped the phrase “SENDING YOU” from the same stamp set and then adhered the word below.
