I "Heart" U

Good Monday morning to you.  I hope you had an enjoyable weekend and are raring to get started on another week.  Today's Valentine card is based on the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #69.

Basic Gray card stock was used for the card base.  I ran the front of the card through the Big Shot using the Vine Street embossing folder.  A piece of Sunshine and Sprinkles designer paper was cut at 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" and then cut in half diagonally and added to the card front.  The "I" and "U" from the Lovely Letters Alphabet stamp set were heat embossed on Whisper White card stock using VersaMark and Melon Mambo embossing powder, punched out with the 1" Circle Punch and matted with an Old Olive circle punched out with the 1-1/4" Circle PunchThe large heart from the Hearts a Flutter stamp set was heat embossed on Whisper White card stock with VersaMark and Melon Mambo embossoing powder.  It was cut out with the Hearts a Flutter Die.  I stamped the smaller heart from the Hearts a Flutter stamp set on Old Olive card stock with Old Olive ink, cut it out using the same set of dies and attached it to the larger heart.  The Small Heart Punch was used to punch a heart out of Melon Mambo card stock.  It was then added to the other hearts.  A heart button from the Bitty Buttons was attached with a glue dot and a Pearl added to the center.  The hearts and two circles were all added using dimensionals.  This was a quick card to put together and is ready for someone special.  Have a great day and I'll see you soon.
