Happy Monday! Hope you had a fabulous weekend. I had a productive weekend and was so happy. On Saturday my husband took our boys and their friend to ski/snowboarding for a day and left me at home alone....I LOVED it. So I spent all day in my studio and worked on my several projects for the Scrapbook Club, Big Shot workshops and Spring Workshop at Carrie Blake. Speaking of the Spring Workshop at Carrie Blake, it's coming up soon on March 17th. If you haven't purchased your ticket, please get one at Doodlebugs since I have sold out all of the tickets I had with me. Hurry......!!!
I had so much fun making this card using the Fashionable Hearts Embosslits Die from the Occasions Mini. It looks hard but is really easy to make it. You will need to run the embosslits die 18 times (6 times in each color) on your Big Shot but you can make 3 cards with all the hearts you diecut or save the leftover hearts for some other projects. I used the Mini Glue Dots to adhere the hearts to a piece of card stock which I used one of the Labels Collection Framelits Dies.

Labels Collection Framelits Dies - set of 6 dies (125598 $26.95)
I love this color combination too (Blushing Bride, Poppy Parade and Peach Parfait). I'm a little sad though because these three colors along with Pear Pizzazz and Concord Crush will be discontinued at the end of May. There will be a new set of 2012-2013 In Colors to be introduced on June 1st when our new Annual Book is debuted. Can't hardly wait for that!!!
Did you know that the Stripes Embossing Folder I used to emboss the card front of this card is one of the Sale-A-Bration items this year???? This means if you spend $50 (before shipping and tax), you will get this Stripes Embossing Folder for FREE. Make sure to use the item number 127710 when adding this folder as your SAB item.
One more tip.....these hearts become totally flat so you can put it in an envelope and mail it to your special friend. No additional postage required (I like it better)!!!! I recommend to insert a piece of Whisper White card stock (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") right on top of your card front so that they don't get damaged.
Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you will case this card. Have a fantastic week!
