Framelits Heart Valentine with Red Glimmer Paper

Valentine made with the Big Shot Hearts Framelits dies and Sale-a-bration stamp set: Outlined Occasions. Made by StampLadyKatie
The New Framelits dies make it so easy to create extra special Valentines.  The three layers of different size hearts really draw your eye to that center heart. Don't you love things that sparkle! Its cut from Red Glimmer Paper.

The Glimmer Paper is wonderful. Its thick and sturdy and the glitter does not fall off. Even though its a little thicker than the regular colored cardstock, the framelits die had no problems at all in cutting through it.

I like to make sure my cards are balanced. I try to balance color, interest and weight. The word at the bottom needed a little something to balance the color and sparkle at the top of the card, so I added a little red Dazzling Details (our new glitter glue). It was the perfect solution for this card.

By the way, if you're wondering how to get the layers on the sentiment using just one punch then be sure to check out the photos from this snowman card. I have photos there explaining the trick.
