A Fashionable Hearts Valentine

Have I mentioned that I love the new products in the Occasions Mini!  Oh, okay, the answer is yes.  {smile}  Today's card uses another one that is quick, easy and very eye-catching!  The Fashionable Hearts Embosslit Die(#125596, $11.95) both embosses and cuts your cardstock at the same time; how easy is that?!  Plus you get five different sizes of hearts each time and every one is embossed differently.  Cool, huh?!
I used an array of pink and red cardstocks for the hearts and arranged them above the lower front edge of the card that had been cut and treated with the Adorning Accents Edgelit Die and Embossing Folder.  These are also new products in the catalog; there are two Edgelits that cut different beautiful edges (the other one is a fancy scallop)(#125595, set of 2, $9.95) and and three Embossing Folders in the set (#125601, Adorning Accents Embossing Folders set of 3, $8.95) that add coordinating embossing!  Genius!!
The greeting is from the Grateful Greetings set (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Valentine greetings, #116511, set of 12, $36.95 wood) which I have used a lot!   The oval frame from the Designer Frames Embossing Folders set was embossed on Whisper White then stamped with the greeting in Cherry Cobbler, cut out and adhered in the center front.
Don't you just love all the different textures on the embossed hearts?  I used Blushing Bride, Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo, Real Red, Poppy Parade and Cherry Cobbler cardstock colors for the hearts.  You could use tones of green, blue, naturals, or whatever to do a design for other occasions and/or times of the year!  How fun would that be?! This makes a pretty clean and simple yet effective card!
