Tons of love

This is my grandson's Valentine card.
I have had this idea rolling aound in my head and since the weather
outside was to my craft room for the day!

I started with the dump truck from EDPD, filled it with embossed hearts (PS)
and put it on the road from the same cartridge.
I love display cards, but was getting weary of easel and center steps...
so I chose the Concertina Card fold for this one.
I started with a white base and covered the panels with a pretty striped pink paper.
The hearts range in size from 3" to 1/2" and are all cut
from glitter papers shadowed in black.
Embossing all of them gives this project more dimension.
A small banner on the top gives the card front sentiment
and is a Cardz TV stamp, while a matted personal verse on the back finishes it off.
I love the way this looks.....especially since we are sending
"tons" of love off to Maddix!
