Sweet Stamps #52 Shaped Card

Today is our fifty-second challenge on the Sweet Stamps blog:
 
SHAPED 
 
Not rectangle or square

Anyone can enter, but if you use a Sweet Stamps rubber stamp you get two entries into the challenge for a chance to win a $20 shopping spree!!
 
A Heart Tent Topper is my take on this challenge!!

My heart was die cut from the background heart of Cheery Lynn's Heartland America Lg Die.  I flipped the die over to hand cut the white heart layer. Using White Dye Ink, Heart with Bow was stamped onto Vellum and heat embossed with White Fine Detail .  I love Sweet Stamps 4-Split Perforating Tool for detail cutting and it was used on the vellum heart. The embossing plates used are Dotted Swiss,  and Hearts & Rose Leaves.  Core'dinations is the cardstock used.  Making roses is such a breeze with Cheery Lynn's Cuties and Roses.  For the large red rose I die cut Large Rose and Miniature Roses .   I used 4 large roses and 4 smalls to make this dimensional rose.  The smaller bi-color roses were die cut from Cuties 3.  The roses were die cut from Stardreams Paper.  One of the Tropcial Leaves created the base for the beautiful roses.  Pearls and ribbon are from my stash.

Beautiful card Bonnie, love those gorgeous hearts. And the hand cutting is just perfect in every way ... I just got that heart die but haven't figured out how to cut it with that clear plate. It looks like it would break it to go thru a die cut machine.
Hugs, Janie
