I have been having a lot of fun experimenting with my Tonic Traditional Layering Heart dies lately.  I just love their plump shape and how they fit together so nicely.

One of the things I like to do with nesting dies is create frames, so today I decided to just run the whole stack of heart dies through my Gemini Jr. and see what kind of clean and simple card I could come up with.

Look at all the frames you get!  You could repeat this a number of times with different colors of cardstock and have a whole rainbow of options on hand.

For my card, I decided to arrange a few of the bright blue hearts overlapping on the front of a white A2 size notecard.  When I was happy with my arrangement, I added some Tombow Aqua glue to secure them down.  I trimmed off the excess parts of the hearts that were hanging over the side.

For a pop of color, I stamped another heart I die cut into a pink foam sheet with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I used a sentiment from Avery Elle’s And Then stamp set and my Precision Press to ensure I got a crisp impression.  I fit this heart into the smaller open heart on the bottom of my card.

After adding another purple foam heart, I took the little limes from the Doodlebug So Punny Food sticker icons and a “pun” from the So Punny Chit Chat set and added those as well.  The green, purple and pink make such a cheerful color combo!

On the inside, I added another sentiment from And Then.

A happy card for a happy Valentine’s Day!  Thanks for joining me today.
