To make both cards, I die-cut the scallop heart frame using the second die from the Heart Frames Dies Set on some X_Press It Blending Card Stock. Since Both cards are completely identical in design, I needed two hearts. I stamped the images from the Heartfelt Meows and Heartfelt Woofs with Memento Tuxedo Black on each heart and colored the images in with alcohol markers .
I worked on both background panels by inking up some Light Blue & Pink Card Stock with some darker shades of pink and blue using Argyle Stencil No. 1. I waited for both panels to dry for about 10 minutes, then used Argyle Stencil No. 2 and applied texture paste all over. This gave it more texture and dimension. I set both panels to dry for about half an hour, then adhered on a top-folding notecard.
I cut strips of brown and red card stock as well as two bows, and added both on the cards with liquid glue for more stability. I foam-mounted the focal panel and finished the card designs by adding the sentiments.
