I have a Valentine's card to share with you today and it features the new Love Frame die from Die-Versions as well as the Love You Sweet Spot, also by Die-Versions.

This was a fairly quick and easy easel card to create.  I knew I wanted lots of layers and I started out thinking I would make one of those collapsible boxes. But as I was playing around with the layers and figuring out how many I wanted, I decided my idea would be too heavy and went with the easel card instead.  The papers are digi papers from Crafters Companion (Love themed papers) that I've had for a while.

I die cut the Love Frame four times - three times from white cardstock and three times from white fun foam.  I wanted to show lots of dimension, so I adhered one of the white cardstock pieces onto one of the fun foam pieces.  Next, I cut out the word "love" from the center of both a fun foam and a cardstock piece.  I adhered these together and then adhered this to the original layer.  The final layer is just the roses, which I cut from the last fun foam piece.  I colored the roses with Copic markers and added Lavender Iris glitter by Sparkle N Sprinkle to the petals for lots of sparkle.

When you open the card and stand it up, the "you" both completes my sentiment and gives the top a place to rest and remain upright.  For this piece, I used the Sweet Spot love you die.  I die cut it from white fun foam and cut off the word I wanted.  To finish it off, I used the top portion of the Love Frame die cut from the last piece of cardstock and used it to frame the word "you".
