GSF January Blog Hop Meant To Be

Welcome to a New Year of hopping with the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop and this month our theme is Meant To Be. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as they share their projects to help inspire you. 
For my card design today, I decided to use the beautiful new Always In My Heart Bundle (item #156194) from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. I love hearts and I love detailed dies, so creating this card with this new bundle was a lot of fun. The detailed dies layer beautifully and I used one of the dies from the Be Mine Stitched Dies (item #151814) to create the heart for the sentiment in this design. For this card, I chose to use Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo, So Saffron and Soft Sea Foam with a touch of Gold to step up it up.

This card design showcases the variety of dies available in the Floral Hearts Dies, which is a part of the Always In My Heart Bundle. I love that the small detailed flowers match up with the flowers on the detailed floral heart and it gave me the ability to add color and texture to the design. The background layer has been embossed with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder to add subtle texture to the design.   The sentiment from the Always In My Heart stamp set was heat embossed onto a Petal Pink heart that was die cut using one of the heart dies from the Be Mine Stitched Dies. I was so happy that this die fit inside the floral heart die cut in a way that allowed the background to create a border around it. I used Stampin' Dimensionals to pop up the heart to add more dimension to the design and embellished it with three of the small hearts die cut from Flirty Flamingo cardstock. I popped the middle heart up with a Mini Stampin' Dimensional and added Gold Metallic Pearls to the hearts for a touch of bling. This card design is a wonderful way to show someone you care and brighten their day.
