Will You Be My Valentine?

Over at The Paper Players Challenge #330 this week they have a theme challenge for Valentine's Day.  I was thinking I was finished making Valentine's Day cards but I got something I had ordered yesterday and had to make just a couple more.  I've already been thinking of all the pretty cards I can make using this die in the future.  One of my nieces is getting married in August and I already have in mind the card I'll make for her. Have you seen this new Caprice Heart Die from Birch Press Designs? They have several layered dies where you just stack the layers to make these beautiful designs but most of them are card sized and just too expensive for me to buy many of.  Even this one was kind of a splurge but I know I will use it many times.

I made the shaped card using the Little B Hearts Dies in the same way as I did for this post. The Caprice Heart Die is not quite the same proportions as the Little B Dies, but you can't really tell once you get everything assembled. For my card I used all Papertrey Cardstock in Pure Poppy, Hibiscus Burst and Lovely Lady.  The die layers are done in the same bottom to top and the top layer is cut from gold foiled cardstock.

The sentiment banner is from the Enclosed: Heart Mini Stamp Set from Papertrey Ink and is cut with the Tag Sale: Quilted Die. So far, this is the only smaller sized layered die from Birch Press Designs but I will be anxious to see what the future holds with them.  The Prismatic Heart is kind of lacey and pretty like this one, but it isn't a layered die.

I still have a few cards to write out to get all my Valentines mailed and today is about the latest I want to do that so I'm going to skate off of here for now to finish those up.  Have a great day and I hope you'll come back very soon.
