DRS Challenge 158 Lovely Hearts

Good Thursday morning to you all!
Today starts a new challenge...Lovely Hearts...translation, use hearts and/or love on your card.  
Today I used both.

I used heart dies from Spellbinders and a heart border punch from Martha Stewart.  The stamps are all DRS and are stamped with VersaMark then heat embossed with gold powder. I stamped "Fill up on Love" 240C, on the nested hearts and the love meter 261D, between the border hearts.  The gold lines below the meter are just thin strips of gold paper.  The background white is embossed with a heart folder.  I made this an easel card because the inside words really need to be displayed as well,  Valentine's full of love greeting 273F The sentiment is popped up to give the top a place to tuck  and stand.  The other small hearts are punched from a corner punch.
To make an easel card like this (it folds to 4 1/4 X 5 1/2), start with an 11 X 4 1/4 piece of cardstock and score at 5 1/2 then again at 8 1/4.  Cut another piece of matching cardstock 4 1/4 X 5 1/2.  Glue the top of the 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 piece to the top of the 2 3/4 remaining on the scored piece. Now decorate top and inside.  Remember to pop something up inside so that you top has something to rest against to stay open.
Thanks for visiting!
