Thank You Heart Card

I'm posting today on the Dies R Us Inspiration blog.  I love it when I have a chance to create with dies as the focus.  It gives me a chance to stretch my creative wings a bit. 

Do you ever take advantage of the pre-orders and specials offered through the Dies R Us Store?  There are some awesome things to take advantage of!  I recently discovered Birch Press Designs during one of these pre-order events.  These dies are awesome!  Be watching for them!

I used all 3 layers of the Birch Press Designs Amour Arch to create this:

I used 3 different shades of pink -- a light pink, mauve, and eggplant to create the layered arch.  I was concerned it might be difficult to line up, but I lined up the 2 small hearts on the outside, and that lined up the whole thing.  It was really easy!  I glued all the layers together using Scraperfect Best Glue Ever and the medium No Clog Writing Cap.

The sentiment I used is by Crafter's Companion, but is similar to this one, by Poppy Stamps.  I like the look of sentiments that are die cut, then have a shadow layer behind them.  I used Stick It Adhesive Sheets on the sentiment and the layer behind it. 

I added some Liquid Pearls to the card for a little more Bling.  Dies R Us carries many great colors of Liquid Pearls.  The ones on this care are White Opal.

Here's a picture of all the supplies I used.  You can see what the package of the Birch Press Amour Arch dies look like.

Here's all the die cuts once they are cut out, but not yet assembled:

I will leave you with one more picture of the finished card:
