This Valentine’s Day Card was made for my daughter Janae. Her favorite colors are Turquoise, Teal, and Purple. I thought that the Impression Obsession Heart of Hearts die would make a pretty card using all those colors. Placing the different colored hearts took quite a bit of time, but I really like the way it turned out.
I started by cutting two circles using My Favorite Things Pierced Circles STAX, one from a deep purple and another from a light turquoise. I pulled the papers from my stash of scrap paper. Next I die cut the purple circle with the Impression Obsession Heart of Hearts Die to form the base of my focal image. I covered the light turquoise circle completely with 3M ATG Adhesive, which provided a sticky surface for placing all the multi-colored hearts. I then cut Heart of Hearts die from a light turquoise, deep teal, light purple and silver mirror cardstock and randomly placed them into the purple die cut heart.
The top folding cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock, but I felt it was too stark for the purple heart so I raided my paper stash and found a pretty light gray patterned paper from Around the Block called Ash Filigree. This is cardstock I’ve had for years and so it probably isn’t available anymore, but anything similar would work. I die cut the patterned paper using Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes and adhered it to the cardbase with Darice Adhesive Fun Foam to add some dimension. I added more fun foam to the purple heart and adhered it towards the top of the cardbase.
The sentiment is from the Pink & Main Love die, cut from Paper Accents Silver Mirror Cardstock. I placed it on the card to determine where to stamp the secondary sentiment from Avery Elle Simply Said: Love with Simon Says Stamp Clear Embossing Ink and covered it with Ranger Silver Embossing Powder. I die cut four more “Love” dies from heavy weight white cardstock. Since the “L” would be resting on the purple heart I marked the die cuts where they would need to have that part of the letter removed and adhered them together using Elmer’s Craft Bond Adhesive Spray and then adhered them to the card front with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.
