After coloring each heart, I used the coordinating die to cut them out. Then I moved on to the card base itself. I wanted some horizontal stripes in the lighter color of ink and something over top of them in the darker shade of ink. I found two stamps that would work perfectly! The stripe stamp is from a Catherine Pooler Designs set called Eat, Sleep, Create and the wavy line stamp is from a stamp set by Simon Says Stamp called I Love Donuts. All three stamp sets I used are shown below.
I used my MISTI to stamp out the horizontal stripe so that I could stamp it straight as well as space it evenly from top to bottom on the card front. I stamped all the lighter colors with the stripe first, and then I changed out the stamp in the MISTI to the wavy line stamp and stamped over the light colors with the darker colors. Once all that stamping was done, I arranged the die cut hearts over top of the stripes and adhered with glue. I love the tone on tone look of this card!
I am debating on whether or not to add a sentiment in the white spaces...If I do, it would most likely be a Happy Valentine's Day sentiment, but I'd have to have just the right size stamp for it! I'll have to look through my stash to see what I have!
