Hello, it’s Seeka here and I hope you’re having a nice day! Today I have a card featuring the Kinsley Heart Layer dies and a terracotta and turquoise color palette that reminds me of the Southwest.

I started off by die cutting the three layers of the heart from peach, white, and light aqua cardstock. I stacked adhered the hearts together and then set the piece aside.

Next, I used the bottom heart layer die to cut a piece of masking paper. I adhered the heart mask onto a 4.25″ x 5.5″ piece of white cardstock and then masked off the left and right borders of the cardstock using Post-it Tape. I also masked off the small die cut holes in the heart with smaller pieces of Post-it Tape.

Using ink blending tools, I blended on a light peach dye ink over all of the exposed area. Then, I added a darker peach along the top and the bottom of the panel, blending the darker color towards, and following the contours of, the heart.

Next, I removed the masks and used foam tape to adhere the heart. The effort I took to mask the heart before blending left the area under, and peeking through, the heart white.

I stamped the sentiment, which is from the Lingo Thanks stamp set, onto a piece of white cardstock and then trimmed it into a strip. I used little pieces of foam tape at the left and right ends of the strip to adhere the sentiment over the heart and onto the panel.

To finish, I adhered the card front to a card base.

Thank you so much for visiting!
