Ever since I got my Nestibilites Hearts Die Cuts, I've been wanting to make one of these. There are 2 sets of Die Cut Hearts. One with a plain edge and another with a scalloped edge. The scalloped edge is just big enough to frame the straight edged hearts allowing you to frame each of them. So I made this card using 4 layers of hearts alternating Riding Hood Red and Pink Pirouetee and framing them in Whisper White. It looks more tedious then it really is. The bigger hearts, I did have to cut each seperately but once they were small enough, I was able to cut 2 at a time.
I used the I (heart) u stamp from Stampin Up's A Happy Heart set. The white images on both sides of the heart are actually Rub-Ons. The Designer Series paper I used is from The Valentines inspired Candy Lane Designer Series paper.
The reason I made this to begin with was for the VSN Challenge that asks you to make a card inspired from your favorite holiday. Valentines Day has long been my most favorite holiday. I am a hopeless romantic plus I got to make my girls Valentines card for their school holiday parties. This is sad to say, but my girls never got to go and pick out those cheesy Valentines Days cards from the store.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!!
