Can You Handle the Pressure - HEARTS - and 1st Anniversary

Dear Ones~
   There's a new challenge over at Can You Handle the Pressure.   For this challenge blog you MUST use an EMBOSSING FOLDER on your project.  Heat embossing (with embossing powder) is permitted but only IN ADDITION to your embossing folder design.  Each new challenge will have a 'TWIST' which is optional ... your choice to use or not.

The OPTIONAL TWIST for today's challenge is:

 Here's my card:
I love this sweet little card, it's a mini slimline. I die cut the postage stamp shapes and left the die stuck to the paper so I could sponge the pink in. That way it left a nice white border. I'm disappointed that the shapes don't show up better in the photo.

The Ingredients:
GKD White Card Stock
Tim Holtz Silver Metallic Card Stock
GKD Master Layouts 4 Die Set for Postage Stamp Shape
Simon Hurley Piggyback Ink
Memory Box Pembrook Heart Die
GKD Master Layouts 10
SU Special Moments Stamp for Greeting
Altenew Featured Sentiments Die for Greeting
Wow Silver Embossing Powder
GKD Tapestry Embossing Folder
Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder
Stash Gems
