I used the Martha Stewart Loop edger punch to create the border from black card stock. The stickers were from Pink Paislee and these are some that Jill sent me with the kit.
To create the flower, I used a white paper flower that Jill sent with the kit and covered it with a black inkpad. Then I stamped a word stamp on top with Versamark ink and embossed that image with clear embossing powder and a heat tool. The pink felt flower came in the Love Struck mixed die cut pack.
I hand cut several of the heart shapes from one of the pattern papers, then layered them onto the card with foam dots to create some dimension. I also added some Rock Candy Distress Stickles glitter glue to the designs on the heart and I love how this looked when it dried!
The pink border was punched from the back side of another paper using the Fiskars Apron Lace border punch. I tied a wide brown ribbon from American Crafts onto the pink card stock layer, then adhered it to my card base. At the bottom of the card, I stamped a saying from a Close To My Heart stamp set in two different ink colors.
This was a quick card to make since the main saying and the two hearts are both chipboard elements from the same coordinating mixed die cut pack. I simply used a scrap of paper from the same line and put the chipboard elements on top with foam tape. Of course, everything is better with glitter, so I added some Rock Candy Distress Stickles on the hearts and on the paper at the bottom of the card.
Here's the card in progress after I added the patterned squares. I did ink around the edges of the squares with a black inkpad to help them stand out a bit.
Here is a close-up shot of the finished card. I used another one of the white paper flowers Jill sent me and added Diamond stickles glitter glue to the flower for a little pop. When it had dried, I glued the flower to the pink felt heart and added a black button on top with an embroidery thread bow.
