Sending Lots of Love

Today I'm playing along with the Just Us Girls challenge.   

A friend asked me to make her 5 Valentines to send to her 5 sons and their wives so I was inspired by the colors in the photo, the white hearts and instead of a stacked snowman I made stacked hearts!?

I die cut the hearts out of a panel of water color paper and then embossed the panel with the Heart Blocks embossing folder from Provo Craft.  I layered the slightly smaller panel over an A2 white card base on foam dots.  
I die cut hearts out of aqua and red, scored one aqua and one red heart down the center and glued it on the fold over the opposite color.  
I adhered the hearts inside the larger die cut hearts using foam dots.  
I white embossed the sentiment on a black strip and adhered it between the hearts on foam dots.  
To finish my card, I adhered 3 little black clay hearts on the embossed panel and brushed over the top of the colored hearts with a Clear Glitter Wink of Stella for a little shimmer.

Stamps: Sentiment Suite: Love - The Greetery
Ink: Versamark
Paper: White, True Black, Pure Poppy - PapertreyInk, Water color paper - Canson Cold Press.
Accessories: Heart Dies - Nestabilits, Tuxedo Clay Hearts - Honey Bee Stamps, foam dots, Heart Blocks Embossing Folder - Provo Craft, white embossing powder, heat tool, Clear Glitter Wink of Stella.
