Hello! Jeanne Streiff here for today's Sizzix Tutorial with a Valentine card made with dies from Jen Long and Stephanie Ackerman.

I love how the Thinlits Hearts w/Layering Shapes has accessory hearts that match the hearts in the larger die!

Die cut the heart background from Hearts w/Layering Shapes with your Sizzix Big Shot on the Extended Multipurpose Platform open to Tab 1 with your paper and die sandwiched between a pair of Standard Cutting Pads. I chose not to emboss the patterns on the background for this card, but if you did you would get a whole new look and that requires the use of the Extended Multipurpose Platform, the Impressions Pad and Silicone Rubber.

I sponged a little brown ink onto my card after attaching the die cut to my card base. Then I splattered a little (thinned with water) brown and white paint to make things interesting.

Die cut some accessory hearts from the Hearts w/Layering Shapes Thinlits with a coordinating patterned paper. I used the Sizzix Magnetic Platform in place of the Extended Multipurpose Platform  for these die cuts to keep my paper patterns straight.

Next, I die cut my "love" using Originals Die Love #3 and my Sizzix Big Shot machine. I sponged the edges with brown ink and then attached it to my card with foam tape. Add the extra hearts randomly. I added a pearl to each of the hearts and pinched them a bit with my fingers to add a little more dimension. Add trim to the top of the card.
