More Greetery Valentines

 Today I'm playing with Boxwood Hearts, both stamped and die-cut.  First up, a stamped one, so easy to put together!

supplies: white and Lipstick Red cardstock, a wood plank design paper, The Greetery Love Is layered  heart stamps and Fit to be Tied bow die, 2 green inks, sentiment from Hero Arts Sending Love Mail stamp set and matching banner die from Boutique Accessories Fancy Cuts, Doodlebug heart sprinkles, adhesive foam to lift heart

I stamped the heart wreath in 2 shades of green inks, then used the Boxwood Heart Base dies to cut it out.  I popped it above the shiplap background, then added a bow, some hearts, and a sentiment banner.

Next I turned to the Boxwood Heart Detail dies.

supplies: white cardstock, The Greetery Boxwood Heart Base and Boxwood Heart Detail dies, various green inks, Banner & Bough flowers, 2 red inks, Hero Arts Sending Love Mail sentiment and Boutique Accessories banner die, an unknown heart embossing folder, Doodlebug heart sprinkles

The detail dies are meant to work with the base die, and, with the "cheat sheet" that Betsy provides, go together easily.  I like the dimension you get by leaving the ends of each layer of leaves unglued.

Here's one more card using them, in a slightly non-traditional color scheme.

supplies: white, pinks, Sea Glass, Surf Blue, and Audrey Blue cardstock, Simon's Detail Bohemian Plate cover die, The Greetery Boxwood Heart Base and Detail dies, Forget-me-Not Botanicuts, Tammy Tutterow sentiment, white pearls

Here I used a more subtle background, and built my heart from a pale blue base and 2 darker shades for the layers.  And brought in the new Forget-me-Not Botanicuts in pink.  With these colors and sentiment, this card could be used for lots of occasions.

Do you send out lots of Valentines?

Beautiful cards Lin, but the one that I really like is the third one - the pierced cover-plate you used is fabulous
