I made up a Clean & Simple card for you today using the fun Hearts Collection Framelit Die in the Occasions Mini!  Really…this was SO easy to make!  It's going to take me longer to type this post than it did to make it!



I started with Whisper White card base.  I used my Simply Scored Tool and score three lines at 1/2, 3/4, and 1" along the left side.  While it was still in the tool, I took my Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker and used the Fine Tip to draw black lines down the scored lines.


I cut out 6 shades of red and pink (Cherry Cobbler, Real Red, Melon Mambo, Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink and Pink Pirouette) with the smallest of the Hearts Collection die.  I ran them thru the Big Shot with the Snow Burst Folder (still available to order!)  I attached them to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals and added a Rhinestone Jewel to each one.  Finally, I stamped Be My Valentine from Delightful Dozen stamp set in Basic Black.  I had a Real Red small heart from Fashionable Hearts Embosslit laying on my desk and I added it to the heart in the greeting with another Rhinestone.
