With All My Heart

I used the pretty new Simon Says Stamp With All My Heart sentiment die from their Love You release, to make a card to show some love...
I just had to put this sentiment die cut in a heart.  That was the easy part.  How to fill that heart behind the sentiment was a challenge.  I tried a number of things until I thought of stripes!  I used the Simon Says Stamp Strips 1, to not only create the strips for the card, but embossed the heart panel with the die, as well. I love these strip dies...they make perfect strips...every time.  I don't know about you, but when I sometimes cut strips, they're not always perfectly straight...no, I am not a perfect cutter.  But these dies are...just sayin!  I cut the die cut the heart from the top panel.  I then cut 1/4" off each side of the panel.  Put the panel aside.   I then adhered the die cut strips onto a piece of thin cardstock...
I don't have a pic of what I did to emboss the panel with the Strips die, but hope I can explain it.  I wanted the lines to go in the direction of the line of the right side of the heart.  So, I centered the white panel on the die cut/adhered strips.  I then matched the lines of the strips with the metal die, adhered the die to the panel and embossed, then embossed the white panel all the way across the panel, moving the die, fitting it into the grooves of the lines already embossed.  
I then took both the strips and white embossed panel, and lined it up with the card.  While holding it in place, I adhered the strips to the card to keep the position for cutting to size.  Funny thing...although the darkest red does not show through the heart, and I originally didn't have it in my first take, I had to add it to have balance on the bottom part of the card.  With the embossed stripes, it becomes even more apparent  of the need for the balance of color....
I then popped the white panel over the strips and added the layered sentiment with pieces of pop up dots behind some of the letters for support, and some added tonic drops.  Here's a close up...
I had so much fun making this card....thank you so much for stopping by to take a look! Hope you have a great day and that you are staying safe!  Hugs!!  Lisa
