This was my take on the challenge, and somewhat of a deviation from my comfort zone. Hearts and pinks aren't usually my thing, but this card took some unexpected twists and turns and this is what I ended up with! Not too shabby, is it?
I started off by cutting out some hearts and frames from the Scallop Pinpoint Hearts Craft Die Set using some white card stock, some alcohol inked panels, and silver foiled card stock. My initial plan was to make a tiny shaker, so I cut out multiple frames and stacked them up. I topped off the multilayered heart with some acetate and then a foiled heart and was done with my shaker well. I filled the well with some pastel-colored jewels and stones and adhered it to the center of the largest heart which I cut out of white card stock.
I took an alcohol inked panel and cut out the next size up of the scalloped heart and adhered it outside the shaker. I followed this up with the other two sizes of the scalloped hearts but in silver foil this time.
I wanted to make it a shaped card, so I cut out another large heart, scored and adhered it to the back. On the inside, I used the "With Love" sentiment foiled from the Modest Greetings 2 Hot Foil and Die set and some silver foil.
A few days before I submitted this for the Challenge, the Design Team received a bunch of goodies from the owner of Poppystamps. They belonged to the new (and absolutely beautiful) release, 2024 Scandinavian Spring. One of the items was the Nordic Lacy Plate Craft Die and I fell in love with it the moment I saw it. I just HAD to use it somehow so I decided to adhere my shaped card to a die cut from the Nordic Lacy Plate die. I used white cardstock to cut it out and it looked a little too clean and simple, so I decided to ink blend the panel. I used Distress Inks like Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, and for some drama, some hickory smoke at the edges. And that was it! What do you think? I tell ya, it was serendipity!
Now it's your turn to take on the Heart Eyes challenge! Need a little more motivation? How about a prize? The winner of this challenge (chosen at random) will receive a $20 Gift Certificate to spend on their favorites from the store!

Have a great week ahead, and good luck, Peeps!
