One of the reasons I like this set is that I thought it would be great for Valentines Day cards, with this sentiment in particular. The sketch for this card is by Mary Fish - I changed it a little color-wise and I used a different embossing folder. I used what I had, which is the Seaside embossing folder (on the 3 x 5 Gorgeous Grape piece), an older whale-tale heart punch and the Subtle embossing folder on the 3 x 4 Real Red piece. You can use any heart punch or heart dies.
The white piece behind the red is 2 x 3-1/4. I liked the way Mary offset this piece, so I did the same. It is glued to the red and both popped up on Dimensionals. See the inside on my Blog.

On the inside, I stamped the piano in Memento and Happy Valentine's Day in Real Red. Let me tell you about the HVD stamp - it is from an old Hostess set called Good Greetings, it is a wood block set, 19 simple, one-line sentiments. How old is it you ask (or not)? It is so old that it is one of the sets for which we had to hand-trim the rubber! If you are new to stamping - TIP - don't ever throw away or sell your sentiment stamp sets - they are invaluable go-to stamps for cards like this.
