Valentine Love

Here is a card using a sentiment from a set called Hello Life from the Occasions Catalog. This is a photopolymer set, so it was easy for me to extend the drawn line to the edge of the card (the curly-cue on the right hand side is actually the "e" from the "love", I wasn't watching, oops!).

To make this card I sponged (similar to a cosmetic sponge), in a pouncing motion on top of the Hearts decorative mask stencil. I used the "CC" theme, Cherry Cobbler, Calypso Coral, and Crisp Cantaloupe for the hearts gradient. I used Staz-On for the sentiment, then lined up the stamp and stamped again to extend the line to the width of the card.

The doily heart is a design that I cut on my Silhouette Cameo, I don't think this particular design was suited for being cut on such a small scale... it was quite "fun" to weed all the hundreds of tiny pieces (hard to see in the photo, but the interior heart is a lacy grid). I think it was worth it though!! I adhered it to the card using bits of Stampin' Dimensionals.

The silver glitter heart was cut using the smallest framelit from the Hearts collection, and the red glitter heart was cut from the Fashionable Hearts embosslit.
