MFT Teasers - Bunch of Hearts Flopsey

Welcome back to Day 2 of MFT Teasers for the January release!  Guess who's back?  That's right - it's your favorite rabbit and mine - Flopsey!  It's been a while since we've seen him and I love this new set and I especially love that it's great for both males and females, old and young alike!  

I stamped Flopsey on X-Press It blending cardstock and coloured him with my copics.  This time around I used W1, W3, W5, and W7 as well as some R20 for his cheeks and ears.  I decided to cut him out and mount him on the new Layered Heart Die-namics die.  I love the size of this die!  And how fabulous are those holes?  They are perfect for stitching, or even just left as is.  

Now although this is the layered hearts die, I was blog surfing the other day and saw a project that Debbie Olson had done where she nested shapes together in one layer.  And so I decided to do the same with my hearts.  So the Kraft heart is nested into the cut out in the red layer.  And the pink, stitched heart is nested into the Kraft heart.  I love the way this looks - dimension without the bulk!

I also used some lace trim along the bottom (from my secret santa - thanks Karen!) and mounted a hug and kiss (aka x and o) cut from the By The Letters dies.    


Here's a close up of the layers that aren't really layers - LOL!  I think you can see that they're all flush.  


It all worked out quite well because then I used the negative portion of the inner heart die for the inside of my card.  I stamped a sentiment and heart from the set in the middle of the heart to finish it off.
