Wow! This was a difficult card to come up. I didn't realize how much I rely on layers to create interest in my cards until I tried this week's Paper Players Challenge: One Layer Valentine. It was all I could not to punch something out or add ribbon!!! It took me 3 tries to settle on something I really like and here's the result:
I did a lot of "masking" to create this look. I stamped the Real Red heart first then placed a cut-out of the same heart over it and sponged the Coastal Cabana heart. Finally, I covered the Coastal Cabana heart and stamped the "Gorgeous Grunge" lines in Smoky Slate. I'm really happy with the way it turned out and the simplicity of the card. Take a closer look:
Here are the supplies you'll need to make this card:

Ink: Real Red, Coastal Cabana, Smoky Slate
Misc: Stampin' Pierce Mat, Paper Piercing tool, Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack, "masks" -- mine were from various cut-outs using the Hearts Framelits dies.
