The card you see at the top of the post is one I made using this set. It could be used for a Valentine, wedding, or even a baby card. How's that for versatile?  I've included a list of the products I've used, complete with images and links at the very bottom of this post.  Below the photo below, I've included step-by-step instructions.

Step by Step Card Instructions:

Paper needed:  4 1/4" x 5 1/2" White Card Base, 4" x 1 1/2" White Daisy Cardstock Strip, (2) 4" x 1/2" strips of Gold Glitter Cardstock, 4" x 2 3/4" piece of diagonal striped B&T paper of your choice (I used the diagonal strip from the Whimsy Fundamentals Paper Pack), 4" x 1" strip of B&T paper of your choice

1.  Stamp the 4" x 1 1/2" White Daisy Cardstock with solid floral heart. First stamp the Pixie heart, then the three Seaglass hearts. Set aside to dry before embossing XO.
2.  Adhere 4" x 1" piece of B&T to top of card, 1/8" from top and sides.
3. Adhere the 4" x 2 3/4" piece of B&T to bottom of card, 1/8" from top and sides.
4. Using a pair of scalloped scissors or a scalloped punch, scallop the two Gold Glitter Cardstock strips.  Adhere these to the back edges of the 4" x 1 1/2" heart stamped strip, with the scallops peeking out when you look at it from the front.
5. Using Versamark pad, stamp the "xo" stamp onto the Pixie Heart, then sprinkle on Gold Embossing Powder and shake off extra.  Heat with heat gun until it is embossed. Hint:  I use a small paint brush to brush off any unwanted embossing powder from my project before heating.
6.  Adhere this to the front of the card, approximately 1" from top edge.
7.  Finish off by adding 2 small Gold Glitter Gems to the bottom right corner
8.  Add a sentiment inside the card if desired.

Love the touch of gold embossing. P.S. I finally got around to adding some photos to the fabulous pages I made with Nevermore, which was inspired by you. They make me happy. Thanks again, and Happy New Year. Wishing you and your family all the best for 2017.
