TGIF Challenge #198 - Valentine's Day Card

Valentine's Day is right around the corner and what says Happy Valentine's Day better than a Hersey Kiss! This Valentine's Day card, entered in the TGIF198 sketch challenge, fits the bill.

Of course, I had to have a Hersey Kiss on the front with a bite taken out of it.  That was easy to do with a heart die or punch turned upside down, punched with a small scalloped circle or oval punch on the point of the heart, and wrapped in aluminum foil. Take a look at the inside!
I thought this sentiment, love you more than chocolate, just finished the idea of the front.

To create this card:

Cardstock:   Cherry Cobbler 4 ¼” x 11” 
                    Crumb Cake 4” x 5 ¼” 
                         Whisper White 4 ¼” strip for the 2 hearts
                    Early Espresso

1.    Fold card base in half.
2.    Emboss Crumb Cake piece with Pinewood Planks embossing folder.  Adhere to card front.
3.    Cut larger heart from Cherry Cobbler using largest stitched heart from Be Mine Stitched Framelits. Stamp sentiment in VersaMark in the middle of the Cherry Cobbler heart and heat emboss with silver embossing powder. Cut sentiment with smaller heart framelit.
4.   For Hersey Kiss, punch heart from Early Espresso. Use scallop circle punch to bite out the top. Wrap in aluminum foil. 
5.  Cut 2 hearts out of Whisper White paper with next to largest stitched framelit and adhere one heart to Cherry Cobbler heart, covering the area where the heart for the sentiment was cut out. Adhere kiss to Whisper White heart and adhere this group to card front.
6. Cut the string of hearts out of Cherry Cobbler with the string of heart framelit. Save the small hearts for the inside. 
7.    Adhere sentiment to card front to the lower left of large heart.
8. On the other white heart, stamp sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink and adhere to the inside of your card. Adhere 3 small hearts left over from the front string of hearts die to the Whisper White heart.
