I {heart} U

Hi everyone! Hope you are enjoying your week!  I had a chance to use some new products this week and I wanted to share this one with you before the week was over. 
It was a really simple card to put together.  I used the new Happy Heart embossing folder as the main star of the card.  I really love the neat rows of hearts.  The small heart was made with the Itty Bitty Accents punch pack, it happens to fit perfectly.  I cut the letters out with the Little Letters thinlits dies.  I choose Blushing Bride as my accent color so that I could use the Blushing Bride Cotton Ribbon.  I have to admit that I didn't used to like Blushing Bride, I would always reach for a true pink like Pink Pirouette or Pretty in Pink, but I have really grown to like Blushing Bride and when I first got my 1/4 " cotton ribbon in Blushing Bride I just loved it, so pretty in person. 

The splotch is made with the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.

I then ran the cardstock through the Texture Boutique with the Happy Hearts Embossing Folder.

Then I cut out my pieces.

I popped the main panel up a bit by using dimensionals to adhere the front to the card base. 

I couldn't decide if the fact that the letters were taller bugged me or not.  So, I snipped them down.  This wouldn't work with all letters obviously but since it worked here I figured why not.

Hope you like it! 
Thanks for stopping by!
