1 Create a 12.5cm square blank from acetate. Stamp a cluster of hearts repeatedly onto white cardstock, 12.5cm square, using VersaMark ink, then heat emboss with Primary Pink Robin embossing powder, creating a diagonal area of hearts.

2 Colour in some of the hearts with a light pink ZIG brush pen and water. Let it dry. Apply temporary adhesive onto the back of the heart-embossed cardstock and fix onto another piece of white card. Trim around the top of the embossed hearts and separate the two pieces of cardstock. These will be for the front panel.

3 Measure and cut out another couple of diagonal pieces of cardstock for the back panel. Adhere all four parts onto the card base and set aside. Stamp a cluster of hearts onto white cardstock and heat emboss with bonding powder. Sprinkle glitter on top, reheat, let it cool and brush off any excess.

4 Colour them in and cut out. Secure a strip of gold mirri to a strip of vellum, cut it into a banner and adhere the cluster of hearts on top, then onto the card front along with a stamped sentiment.
