Here is how my card was created.

1.  Cut 4 Garden Notes Oval Grapevine Wreaths from brown cardstock.  Cut section out of each  shade with distress ink.  Lay out to form 2 hearts attach pieces using Kids Choice Glue.  Attach 1 heart on top of the other. (see photo)

2.  Using White Soft Finish Cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on top cut 1 heart with die cut hearts from Joset’s Heart Cutouts die set and 1 solid heart saving little hearts as well.  Coat top of heart that has cutouts with Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter burnish in with finger.  Coat solid heart and little hearts with True Red Silk Microfine Glitter burnish in with finger.  Attach white heart on top of red heart using Kids Choice Glue.

3.  Using Els van de Burgt Love Sentiments die set die cut “Be My Valentine” from White Soft Finish Cardstock with Clear Double Sided Tape on top.  Coat with True Red Silk Microfine Glitter burnish in.
