Vintage heart card - You are loved

It's already June and we have a new challenge at the Country View Challenges blog: HEARTS. Our hostess is the lovely Hazel.

During making this card I had to realise (again) two things about me. 1. I don't like too much layers and dimensions on my cards because I don't find them practical to send a card. 2. I love symmetry - at this card I tired to break the symmetry but I couldn't :-D

What I used:

Sizzix Framelits die, Hearts

Sizzix Thinlits die, Alphanumeric 3/4" by Tim Holtz

Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Adornments, Regal (TH92903)

Ranger Texture Paste, Opaque Matte - I created the hearts on my big heart

Ranger Distress Crayons (Festive Berries, Seedless Preserves, Picked Raspberry) - I coloured the heart with them

Ranger Distress Crayons (Walnut Stain) - I coloured the edges of the XOXO word

DecoArt Crackle Glaze - I covered the red star with this

Ranger Distress ink pad (VintagePhoto) - I smeared this into the crackles of the heart and inked the edges of the card

Ranger embossing powder, Gold and Liquid Platinum - I used them for the edges of the card and for the word XOXO

Ranger Distress Spray Stain (Walnut Stain) - I spayed the card with this

Ranger Crackle Accents - I put this on the word XOXO, under the Liquid Platinum (I achieved a really interesting effect)
