A Teeny Tiny Wishes Valentine

I can't believe how quickly this card went together.  Once I was ready to put it together.  This is not the card I started out making.  

My vision was for a card with the 3 hearts but they were traced in using the paper that was left from punching out the hearts.  I traced the 3 hearts using the fine tip of the black marker.  YUCK!  

So then plan B went into action.  I punched out a heart and set it in the middle of those three traced hearts.  Once again YUCK!  

Now plan C had to go into effect.  I usually don't have a plan C so I gave it a bit more thought and decided to toss out the 3 traced hearts.  I did like the color that the single heart added so I thought 3 punched hearts would be pretty.  And as I was heading over to my scrap bin I saw a lighter shade of pink and I thought I would go with a graduated look or a Faux Paint Chip look.  And this is what I came up with.

First I stamped the words and then added the hearts.  That way I didn't have to work hard on getting the words in the exact spot.  But I noticed I did get the words a little crooked.  Now I have to remind myself that this is a handmade card!!!

To make this card I used the Dotted embossing folder.  Then I cut the black card stock 3/14" x 4-1/2" and the white was cut 3" x 4-1/4".  I stamped the words on using black StazOn and the Teeny Tiny Wishes set.  Then I punched out 3 hearts using Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose.  The black and focal layers were taped together and set in place on the base of the card using Dimensionals.  And that was it.  SO easy and SO quick.  Now why couldn't that idea have come to me first?  LOL

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
