MFT Color Challenge 61: Love You #2

This is the second card I made for the the My Favorite Things Color Challenge 61.  The inspiration for this card was taken from the background paper which is from 2014 Pink Paislee Pen Pals Correspondants paper pack, which has letters in white circles with a gray border, some of the circles have little red hearts.  A panel of of this paper was cut using Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes rectangle and adhered to a cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# Kraft cardstock, cut to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″ for a side folding card.

A circle was cut from a scrap of gray cardstock using the third largest My Favorite Things Pierced Circle STAX die.  Next a circle was cut using the next smallest circle from the die set from White Doodlebug Sprinkles Vellum.  A heart was cut from a scrap of red cardstock using the third largest Spellbinders Classic Hearts die and then the word “LOVE” was cut from the center of the heart using My Favorite Things Little Uppercase dies.  The word “you” came from My Favorite Things Nuts About You stamp set and was stamped at the bottom of the heart with Simon Says Stamp Clear Embossing Ink and heat set with Gina K. Designs Fine Detail White Embossing Powder.  The heart was adhered to the vellum circle using 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape for added dimension and then the vellum circle was adhered to the gray circle using Tombo Mono Multi Glue, adhered only to the vellum where the red heart would cover up the glue.  Darice Adhesive Fun Foam was cut just smaller than the gray heart and adhered to the back of the circle and the cardbase with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

From the first card created for this challenge there were a lot of hearts left over from cutting all the colors of the challenge with the Impression Obsession Heart of Hearts die.  These were scattered around the heart, as well as on the background paper.  Wink of Stella was added to the hearts and the card was done.
