  1. Cut Basic White Card Base 8 ½” x 5 ½” and score at 4 ¼”.
  2. Using the Gingham Embossing Folder, emboss the Petal Pink DSP layer.
  3. Using Real Red ink, stamp the “Luv U” outline heart onto Petal Pink 1” x 1” square and die cut using the coordinating die from the Sweet Hearts Die set. 
  4. Cut a Real Red heart using the largest heart Die from the Sweet Hearts Die set.
  5. Cut a heart from the “red speckled” DSP using the shorter, wider heart.
  6. Stamp “Happy Valentine’s Day using Real Red ink.  I stacked the sentiment.  Stamping “Valentine’s Day” first along the bottom edge of the Basic White 2 ¼” square.  Then clean stamp thoroughly and dry.  Ink just the “Happy” and stamp above the “Valentine’s Day”.  Because this is a clear stamp, it makes it easy to ink just the part of the stamp you want.  
  7. Using the die with the 6 connected hearts.  Cut once with Real Red cardstock (saving the outline hearts) and Cut once using the Petal Pink DSP (saving the individual 6 hears).
  8. Using the Basic White 3-½” x ¾” strip.  Center the “6 hearts” die and cut.  You’ll be using the negative on your card.  You can save the other pieces for using on another project. 
  9. Adhere the “negative” Basic White hearts to the Real Red matte.  Insert the Real Red Hearts outline, then insert each individual petal pink heart in place.
  10. Attach the Real Red Background to the folded card base.
  11. Attach the Embossed Petal Pink DSP to the Real Red background.  
  12. Attach Basic White 2 ¼” square towards the top of the 3” x 2 ⅜” piece.  Tie White Crinkle Seam Binding into a bow towards the lower edge of the Real Red piece.  
  13. Adhere the 3 hearts to the stamped Basic White, taping the Read Red and the speckled heart flat.  The stamped heart is popped using Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  14. Attach this stamped panel to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  15. Attach the row of hearts flat to the card towards the bottom, centering side to side.
  16. Sprinkle with 3 Iridescent Rhinestone Jewels, decorate the inside & send off to someone you love!
